I haven't had a fountain...
, April 26, 2013
I haven't had a fountain pen since the nib on my old one (a high school
graduation gift from 1989 (!)) bent when a friend borrowed it and pressed too
hard. I figured this would be a good re-entry level pen, going by the reviews.
Wow - I may never use a ballpoint pen again. This requires hardly any pressure
to write with and glides across even cheap looseleaf paper (although it does
bleed through a bit, but this is the paper's fault, not the pen's). I'm using
the cartridge it came with, but I also bought a converter and a bottle of
Herbin's Lierre Sauvage ink to try later.
