Seriously fine nib, although...
October 26, 2015
Seriously fine nib, although it doesn't show an exact size. I don't have any
fountain or dip pen that puts down a finer line. Given that, it's not scratchy,
just more feedback than a broader nib.
It will indeed fit in the Platinum desk pen holder. I actually have a Platinum
double holder meant for red and black pens; I put this one on the red side and a
black Pilot desk pen on the other. They don't dry out in the holder, but of
course I'm saving the caps just in case. Also, since it's nib down in a pen
holder, it's good that neither pen shows any tendency to leak ink out the nib in
This red pen came with a black ink cartridge, but I filled an empty Pilot
cartridge with Diamine Syrah instead. I'm sure it will work fine with a
converter if I want to do that later.
