I got this last week. It had a hard time starting, so I changed the ink out. Still no luck. Got the flow better writing with the nib almost sideways. I was so frustrated I bent the tip slightly downward and widened the channel. I filed the tip a bit with a nail file and voila. It is finally working. It is still a bit scratchy, but that is to be expected with a tip this small. All in all, I am disappointed. The Platinum Preppy I got with my ink writes great with no modifications or tinkering. Maybe I just got a lemon.

I love the Pilot Penmanship Fountain Pen. I just bought my 3rd. I'm a pen&ink artist and I love to write. This pen serves both purposes and has a really nice extra fine line. At first I thought the Ergo Grip might be slightly "off". It didn't feel quite right, until I wrote with it. Spot on.

Excellent EF nib. Great pen for extended writing. Perfect for my Moleskine journals which tend to bleed through with fountain pens, especially M and B nibs.

Hate be so repetitious, so monotonous, tedious, boring, humdrum, mundane, dreary, tiresome; unvaried, unchanging, unvarying, recurrent, recurring, repeated, routine, mechanical, automatic in my reviews but man, I love this pen too. I love ordering these lower priced fountain pens that I have never seen in stores and trying them out. Ya I know, need to get a life. Jet pens is one of my favorite online stores. Great products, reasonable prices, great service.

What I love about this pen is the triangular ergo grip. It's the pefect grip for me to keep control of the pen. I wish this pen came with a fine point instead of very fine only. I replaced the nib with a fine point one from a Pilot Metropolitan pen and all is well.

excellent pen. I have two of these. It's a pretty thin line, definitely for the super-precise folks (I am one). Great feel in the hand, awesome ink flow, consistent no-skip line -- can't say enough good things about this. I have two and they both just write and write and write. I've use one with the converter and Sailor ink and honestly the cartridges seem to work better with less fussing around.

I just wish Pilot would take this nib and put it into a more "classy" professional body, maybe one with a bit more heft / weight.

Nice pen for details work on tight lined paper. The nib seems to pull down and block the ink flow, but a bit of extra pressure to bend it UP seems to help. Sure with the Pilot Metropolitan came with this nib (XF)!!!

My favorite nib as of current. It has feedback, as should be expected from such a fine line (.2mm line), but not scratchy. After it's broken in (a month or two of constant usage) it becomes very smooth.

Replacement for a lost Pilot Penmanship. Enjoyable writing
