This fountain pen writes...
This fountain pen writes exactly as advertised - a fine point, more like a 0.5 pen. The weight is great, and it's a slim fountain pen, much slimmer than any other I've seen. It's great - I've had it for about a year and love using it. The ink flow is good (I've been using J. Herbin ink in it) with the CON 20 converter, since I don't think the CON 50 fits the pen because it's so slim. That's my only gripe (the CON 20 converter doesn't have a clear body, so you can't see how much ink is left or how much you've filled it). The color of the pen body is true to what showed up on my screen, and the finish is a pearly pink.

This is a beautiful,...
This is a beautiful, very elegant pen. The colour is just as lovely as it is in the pictures. It took me a long time to break it in as I found it very scratchy at the beginning but now writes like a dream. It looks more expensive than it is. It will not dissapoint.
Whilst loving it's slenderness, I hate that I have to use the Pilot Con-20 converter as opposed to the Con-50 which is a piston filling converter which is too fat to fit into the barrel of this Cavalier.
I would like to know however if the nib can be unscrewed for a more thorough clean. Does anyone know for sure. I don't want to touch it in case I break it.
