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.

I've had this little pen for years, and use it for fine-line ink drawings with lots of hatching and crosshatching. It is smooth and consistent, with no noticeable scratching of paper fibers. (If you have a pen that is scratchy or skipping, I'd contact JetPens for an exchange because that is probably a manufacturing flaw.) It's worked with a range of inks, from simple Watermans to Platinum Carbon Black, and never clogged unless I left it unused for a few months. I have been impressed with its reliability and smooth, easy feel when writing.

Quick note: I recently learned that the Penmanship nib and feed fit in the Pilot Metropolitan pen body. I had a medium nib Metropolitan that I never used, so I swapped in the extra-fine Penmanship nib and it works perfectly. I hadn't minded the black plastic body, but now that it's seated in a lovely Metro body, I love the nib even more.

Really helps to promote good writing grip. It's also very scratchy (obviously cause it's extra-fine nib), so if that's what you like, then this should be perfect. Only reason I'm giving it a 4/5 is because the ink seems to leak. If I move it abruptly in any direction, the pen flings tiny droplets of ink.

This pen is wonderful! The fine nib is perfect for journaling. One thing I like is the Pilot Con-20 converter holds a good amount of ink and when firmly seated in the pen adds a very slight amount of weight. The grip does take some adjustment but over all the quality of this pen is quite astounding, especially for the price.

I wish it had a clip, instead of the weird twist-off cap. However the cap does stay put if you put it on the back of the pen while you're writing.

An ACTUALLY FINE nib! I'd say it rivals Slicci or Hi-Tec-C 0.3-0.4mm lines - very precise.
At times it can get scratchy, but I've found that that only happens if I'm running low on ink (not empty, just low), and if I switch out the cartridge it resolves. This is kind of a waste of ink, but the cartridges are cheap enough and the pen uses so little ink that it's not economically prohibitive. I've been able to go ~a week on each cartridge, using this as my primary pen (I work in a hospital where we still use paper records, so I usually fill up at least 6 full A4 pages daily)
