This is an excellent, well-made, and reliable fountain pen. The fine nib is
perfect for writing in my Moleskine pocket weekly notebook. Ink flow seems to be
best when I use the converter and fill from a bottle. A few seconds is required
to get flow started when using a cartridge, but, once started, the flow is
smooth. Once in a while, after the pen has been in an upright position with
cartridge installed, it doesn't start immediately and I have had to gently shake
the pen downward to get it going. I have never had this problem with the
I prefer this pen over my Lamy Dialog 3 which is a similar design, but not as
I own a couple of other Vanishing Point pens, with the click feature, and,
sometimes, I don't like the "snap and kick" of the button on the VP or decimo.
Turning the knob on the Fermo is smooth and silent.
