A reasonably thin metallic...
December 12, 2013
A reasonably thin metallic line with strong color: was beginning to think I'd
never see one. This pen is great: it really does produce something that looks
close to a non-metallic line weight. I've gotten used to "0.7 mm" metallic pens
that look well over 1.0 mm. This one is for real. The color is strong enough
both for decorative work and for actual writing. The color isn't a conventional
primary blue, though; it's more of Prussian blue, with faint hints of grey and
green. It's a very pretty color, and significantly darker (and greyer) than the
body color. The overall effect is remarkably similar to the old Pearl metallic
pen line--even the color matches my old Pearl blue pen.
