I love this pen to pieces....
I love this pen to pieces. It looks great, has a good weight, and the fine nib writes smoothly (line thickness similar to an 0.4mm roller ball) with only a slight amount of scratching on a Field Notes memo book.
I previously had the medium nib "dot" version of this pen, and it wrote about an 0.7 mm equivalent line thickness and bled a bit on the Field Notes memo book. I recommend both versions.
I'm still using the ink cartridge it came with.

I adore this pen. I originally bought the medium, which is nice, but a fine nib is so much nicer. Good heft and writes very smoothly. This is now my everyday pen.

Writes very well. This is the first non-disposable fountain pen I've ever owned -- bought it after I loved the pilot disposables. It is easy to refill and writes very smoothly. I love it! The fine nib is excellent - I can read my writing very clearly. My favorite pen by a long shot.

Great pen, great price....
Great pen, great price. The body feels like it has a matte finish, in contrast to the smooth pearliness of the white tiger one. The fine nib is perfect, not as wet as the medium, but still providing a good depth of color with various inks. It's a solid workhorse pen that is built well and just works.

Very nice writer with the included black ink cartridge. The Violet color is very dark, more of an eggplant. My only knock is that it does not post well -- many times the cap has fallen off and now the finish is chipped on the cap. If you jam it on hard it will stay.
I use this pen daily with other pens in rotation with various colors. It starts up every time and writes with a light touch.
