Verified Purchase
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.

Ah a beautiful writing instrument. This fountain pen, as you can see in the pictures above writes with a very fine line. The pen itself is thin and very comfortable to hold. If held right it requires minimal effort to write with. I would strongly recommend that you purchace the Con-20 along with this so that you can use real ink and not cartridges. The Con-50 does not work with this pen (it installs but then you cannot close the pen because the converter is too wide. All in all an awesome pen. This is a dry nib and you won't see any feathering even on lower quality paper.

Love it, has a nice thin line, at times I wish my expensive fountain pens wrote as well as this one (and I have Mont blanc, Waterman, Cross, etc) this one has the best fine line.
