, May 29, 2011
Very cute little pen, especially when paired with Pilot's blue or blue-black
ink. Writes beautifully compared to other pens in this price range and the cap
stays posted nicely with no rattling. I personally liked the plastic grip right
off, even though I tend to hold my pens a little higher up. Now I just need the

, April 10, 2011
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.

I love this pen. The nib is smooth and it has a salutary effect on my
penmanship. It is nice to hold and certainly handles a variety of finer and
not-so-fine paper without bleeding. I would not encourage you to take it on a
plane without removing the ink cartridge however, like may fountain pens, it
hates plane travel! Very nice correspondence pen!

, January 5, 2012
I bought this pen in purple body at Target of all places. I will tell you this
that I recommend that you was the nib first to make sure there is no residue on
it. I am in love with this pen. My hand took to the grip nicely and it wrights
smoothly. The other reason I bought this pen is that the refills are cheap as
well. You can get a 12 pack of cartages for 2.00 and 6 of the Color for 6$.
I am about to order the blue and back bodies.

, April 2, 2014
Lovely! This pen writes like a dream. The flat nib does not catch at all and
writes beautifully. If you are looking for a pen for pleasure writing, get this
one. The screw on cap is awesome and prevents ink spillage/evaporation. I also
love the color of the pen itself. Awesome pen. Awesome price. Go and get

I am highly satisfied with my purchase. For under $8, this is a solid little
pen that writes gorgeously. My print has gone from messy legible to pretty
legible script! The slight hint of line variation really makes my handwriting
look extra special.
The pen is very light due to the plastic body, and on the smallish side, which
is perfect for my small hands. The Con-50 converter fits easily and snugly
inside. I took my pen entirely apart for cleaning after it ran out of the
initial Pilot cartridge I used. The pen comes apart and goes back together
really easily, making cleaning and swapping nibs a snap. Everything is as tight
and snug as when the pen first arrived, so no worries about leaking ink.
Oh, and buying this pen has caused me to buy a Metropolitan, which is now on
order. So beware! It's like a gateway drug into the wonderful world of fountain
pens and examining your handwriting for improvements.

I bought the pen to have a cheap italic nib to play with and swap into one of my
What surprised me was how much better I wrote with the finger grip. My hand
held steady and I got the full benefit of the italic nib. It's an indoor pen,
so forget about carrying it around in your pocket.
In my mind it is a great little fountain pen at a very affordable price.

I am in love with this pen. I am so glad I bought it! I was a little worried
about the grip being plastic, but it is surprising comfortable (though a rubber
grip would still be a little nicer) and it really does help one to grip the pen
to write properly. I love how the medium nib turns my typically messy-looking
writing into a nice calligraphy script. If there is a better fountain pen for
the price, ease of refill, comfort and beauty, I have yet to meet it.

A very nice pen with an attractive design. Generally, I like Pilot products, but
being a lefty, I struggle with this pen. That may be something I should have
anticipated, but I was hopeful. It'll make a nice gift for a right-handed
friend, I'm sure.

This pen is so fun to use. I love the line variation and for the price it is a
very smooth nib. I love how my handwriting looks when using this pen.

, June 11, 2011
Great pen, but for two years I could not use it because nowhere could I find ink
for it. While looking for a pen that writes purple and
extra fine tip, came across refills for my Plumix Fountain Pen. JetPens carries
both! I am one happy person and JetPens will be
where I go for my pen needs from now on. America sells us pens all the time,
but does not supply the refils. You have to buy another pen. I will try and get
the word out. Thanks JetPens.

, December 9, 2010
I've used the Rotring Art Pen for a long time using the medium tip. When I
purchased the Pilot Plumix there is good and bad. Good - I like the comfortable
grip that it has and is definitely shaped for writing style for your fingers.
Bad - It isn't as smooth writing like the Rotring Art Pen. I use Noodlers Super
Black Ink and the ink doesn't come out as black on the Plumix as it does on the
Rotring. The medium tip on the Rotring is slightly wider than the medium tip on
the Plumix. The unscreweble cap on the Plumix reminds me of a "squid". Only if I
can transfer the comfortable writing handle of the Plumix on to my Rotring then
I got the Calligraphy pen that I need. Of course with a little added weight on
the pen would also help.

, November 26, 2009
I didn't get mine from Jetpens, but I do plan to get the penmanship. Pilot did a
great job, except for including BLUE ink by default. Writes smooth and just
thick enough so it doesn't take 3 pages to write 2, but it's thin enough that I
think about what I'm writing and try to write a little clearer. Triangular grip
takes some getting used to, and the threaded cap is a pain, but it all works
ALSO: I find that if the picture were shrunk by 88 percent it would be actual
size. Also also: take the brightness down by 50 percent.

, September 23, 2009
This is a neat pen to mess around with for calligraphy letterform practice,
because the nib is slightly broad and flat, and is pretty much cut straight
across so even lefties (like myself) shouldn't have trouble using it. The shape
is odd, but not uncomfortable to use, and the ink has a decent flow.
