I've always wanted one...
January 26, 2016
I've always wanted one of these pens, and gunmetal color made me take the
plunge. I got a broad tip. The pen works well, but the nib is not sealed near
well enough for the dry arizona desert. Leave it for 4 or 5 days, and it's very
hard to get writing again. The pen is designed for daily use and is very easy to
access with the push button, but my workhorse pens are 0.7mm gels, so my
fountain pens get used when I write letters every month or two. I only wish it
sealed the nib better. I don't mind the pocket clip near the nib--it's really no
problem for me. The other thing I don't like is that the converter makes it
impossible to see how much ink is left due to being surrounded by metal except
for a couple of mm at the top.
It's a great pen concept, but needs better nib sealing if you don't use it
daily. I thought of putting into a sealed ziplock, but that seems crazy to have
to do for a pen that costs this much.
