Another great product from Pilot! I purchased this inexpensive pen so I try out
could try out an italic nib (although I believe it actually has what is known as
a "music nib," which means that it will make a mark whether you push or pull it
across the paper). Regardless, it is excellent for calligraphy practice, and
produces a line thin enough to use for everyday writing purposes.
I also purchased a Pilot CON-20 converter, which fits perfectly in place of a
regular cartridge (which I haven't tested yet, unfortunately). I have some
Noodler's ink in there right now, and the pen writes very smoothly...a pleasure
The triangular grip is similar to that of the Pilot Penmanship, and similarly
comfortable. The barrel is light but sturdy plastic, so you can write for a
while without your hand getting tired. Again, the only issue I have with this
line of pens is the inconvenience of having to unscrew the cap every time I want
to use it, but that's a small complaint compared with the overall value.
