after reading other reviews, I decided to get one of these. I LOVE IT! This is a great step-up from the platinum preppy. This pen has a beautiful and smooth-writing nib, and the ink in the included cartridge is pretty dark and nice. the medium nib writes about equivalent to an 0.7 or 0.8 gel/liquid ink pen. I stuck in the cartridge, and after leaving it nib down for about 10 minutes, I was able to start writing. the converter looks a bit cheap, but I haven't tried it yet.

The Pilot pen has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the best introductory fountain pens. It looks and feels like a pen costing much more money, and I've had several people compliment me on it.

It comes with a converter, so all you need to buy is a bottle of ink and some nice paper, and you're good to go!

A great price-performance pen from Pilot. I swear, I can't think of a fountain pen I've owned that was better for the $17.

I -love- this pen. It writes smooth, looks a lot more expensive than it is and is surprisingly well made. Pilot's idea of "fine" is a lot finer than any other brand I've seen. Which is really nice. My first FP was a Lamy and I found their fine nib way to broad for my liking. So if you want a broader tip I'd say that the medium nib is comparable to Lamy's fine nib.

The CON-20 adaptor it comes with is functional enough. It's less messy than the CON-50 adaptor I purchased with my Pilot Penmanship FP. It didn't quite fill to my liking by just squeezing it so I pulled it out and filled it with a dropper.

Overall, I'd say this is definitely comparable to some of the $40 FP's I've seen.

I had expected to receive a cheap fountain pen, regarding the low price. How surprised I was to hold such a significant pen with a quite heavy metal-body in my hand. The nib is perfect for me. I am a lefty and can use this fountain pen without smudging.

Writing with this pen is such fun, I desperately need some inspiration and topics, I feel the to handwrite, now that I own this pen.
I can not comment on the converter, since I used the PILOT cartridge with black ink that came with the pen.
I might order a second one, so I can have use it with a nice complementary colour, orange or pink.
The ergonommics are not perfect, because the ridge (where the cap touches the pen) is quite sharp which is annoying when I write more than just a few lines.
Still 5 points, because with free shipping in the US the value what you get, for the price you pay, is amazing!
