The Cavalier fountain pen is gorgeous. At first, we just considered it as another quality pen from the Pilot Cavalier series. But after trying it out we realized that the fine nib writes almost as fine as a Hi-Tec-C 0.5 mm gel pen, which is quite amazing for a fountain pen. It combines modern and professional design with superb writing capability. The pen features a nice slim body with gold accents.

The pen comes in a gift box, and one black ink cartridge is included. Compatible ink cartridges and the compatible CON-20 converter can be found under Recommended Refills/Parts.

This pen is a pleasure to write with, however within a week of use, the thread, that's used to screw the pen body together with the nib and coverter, came off the pen body. Nothing a bit of epoxy glue couldn't fix. I proceeded to fall back in love with the pen, however I think that the cap is a bit too heavy to write with on the back of the pen so I had to constantly hold it in my other hand, which was quite a chore at times. The pen may also be a bit sensitive to drops as mine is now ruined because I dropped it. (although the latter was due entirely to my own clumsyness and has no bearing on my review of this pen) I'm hoping that this pen comes back in stock so I can get a new one!

I love this pen. It was the first durable fountain pen I ever bought and it has thus far proven to be my favorite. I went through several pens before coming back to it, but now this is the pen I write most with.

I am a left handed writer and my hand is larger than average, though not basketball player sized. The weight and balance of this pen is pleasing. It helps me to form my letters neatly. The nib is sturdy, and it writes finer than any other fountain pen I have found. However, despite appearances, it is not gold (not that one should expect it to have a gold nib at this price). It is

I use a CON-20 converter with this pen. As a left-hander, it is important for me to have a quick-drying ink. The ink I use in my Cavalier is Noodler's Baystate Blue, which is a notoriously fickle ink. In fact, it destroyed two of my Lamy nibs. The Pilot Cavalier, however, has held up marvelously. It is an excellent product and a fine introductory fountain pen if you have never used them before.

This pilot follows excellency in quality as with its expensive line of fountain pens. I only wish that the nib came in a stainless steel (color). It is just my own personal taste that if its gold it should be genuine so that it does not began to fade and look cheap. But that is simply my opinion....It writes altogether wonderfully.

This is the nicest fountain pen I own, better than the super expensive ones. I love a fine line and this is very fine (hard to find in fountain pens) plus it's smooth, no skipping. Love how it rights, plus it looks great.
