By rog...
I read a very favorable review of this pen on another site, and so when I saw it here, I decided to order it. Yes, it is marketed as a beginner or child's pen (it has a cute smiling face on the nib). But it lays down a fantastic fine line. It does have a large barrel, but that's not so much of a problem. It's nice to handle. You can use a converter with it, and it takes Namiki cartridges (I put a purple one in mine). I like it better than the Pilot Penmanship.

  I've never left a review..., April 21, 2014
I've never left a review on this site, but this little pen compelled me.

This is going to sound crazy, but this may be my favorite nib of all time. I bought one on a whim on a trip to Tokyo, and didn't even open/ink it until months later, and was blown away. My normal daily carry pens are Pilot/Namiki vanishing points (mostly previous model, but a new one as well) in everything from EF to B, Lamy safari's (mostly EF and F), and a couple of TWSBIs. This pen is FAR superior to any of my Safaris (and I love those pens) and I honestly like the nib better than the VP EF that I got from Richard Binder. It just goes down perfectly, with great feedback, and absolutely no skipping or starting issues. Even the Platinum Balance I bought recently (and also like a great deal) can't claim the same consistency in performance.

I bought two more within 24hours of inking up the first (this time from JetPens), another Fine and a Medium. The second Fine is every bit as great as the first. The Medium is also a very nice pen, but it does have a few starting hiccups, and may need to be tuned a touch.

The absence of a clip doesn't bother me at all, I usually keep them either on my desk or in a roll, and I just pretend I'm using a $700 Nakaya instead of a $20 Pilot. I would be happy to trade almost any of my steel nibbed pens for one of these, I really don't have a single complaint, and will definitely be buying more.
