The price for this pen...
, November 10, 2011
The price for this pen is pretty good for its quality. The casing is just
plastic, so nothing too exciting, although the shape does provide a good grip.
The nib is nice and can provide great variation. There can be some issues when
the nib is just starting, e.g., skipping, dryness, etc. I found it to improve
with use and a thorough cleaning or two, though it was frustrating. I haven't
had a problem with it since; it's always been a reliable go-to pen for me. I've
used cartridges and converters from Pilot in it without problems. It was my
first real fountain pen, I believe, and I still use it frequently.
Oh, a note for some beginners: Keep in mind that Pilot uses proprietary
cartridges, i.e., only Pilot cartridges and converters will fit this pen.

Inconsistent! I didn't...
, June 15, 2011
Inconsistent! I didn't buy this from JetPens, but I did want to write a review
I've had two of these pens - a blue one and a purple one - both with the same
music nib. The blue one was smooth and wonderful, but I lost it. Even though I
am left-handed, it was buttery and put down a solid wet line. Very nice to use.
Also cheap! But alas! I eagerly bought the purple one to replace it and was
immediately disappointed in what a poor writer it was compared to the other one
I own(ed). Dry, scratchy, skips a lot, hard to get started, inconsistent ink
I am also disappointed that the converter costs more than the pen does and it
doesn't take a standard cartridge. If I had known that the converter was more
than the pen and I have to order carts on the internet (can't find them
locally), I would have probably not bought this pen (again). I am afraid of
converting it to an eyedropper because it might break it my bag/make a
That said, it is a nice size and shape. The cap screws on securely and it feels
nice to hold. This pen has a lot of good reviews, so it's entirely possible that
the replacement I got is just bad quality. I am, however, disappointed that
there is so much variation between the same model of pen. I may try to adjust
the nib on it to save it considering that it's not very useful as-is right now.

I ordered this pen after...
, August 10, 2012
I ordered this pen after some research, however my experience was less than
satisfying. The italic nib created a beautiful writing experience for a very
wallet friendly price. The color was very attractive...sadly that is where my
applause ends. Maybe this was just my pen however the ink seems to over flow
within the body and as a result causes ink to literally drop from the tip. So
much ink drips that a little well was forming on my paper. This pen has yet to
have any serious shaking, it has literally been sitting (upright) in my pen
holder. Since I purchased replacement ink cartridges I cleaned and reinserted
new ink, same issue be it purple or blue.
I wanted to love this pen but I really don't want to ruin my cloths, paper or

These are quite nice...
, October 11, 2009
These are quite nice fountain calligraphy pens. I like the nib, and it serves
well for finer point calligraphy or italic writing. It can also be used whether
you are left or right handed. The nib can be unscrewed from the body, and fitted
onto pens like the Pilot Prera. I wish that Pilot would start selling the
broader nib (BB) for this pen though. Some might not like the grip section
though and it takes a bit to get used to.

This is a great pen for a great price, it is fun to use and I love this italic
nib. Just perfect.
Absolutely LOVE this...

Absolutely LOVE this fountain pen! Very smooth and easy to use. The grip makes
it even nicer - and almost feels like it improves my writing. I will definitely
be buying more of the Plumix in different colors from JetPens to add to my
collection and to keep one available whether at home or work.
This is the first fountain...
, August 2, 2011
This is the first fountain pen I have ever used, and I love it. The grip is
plastic, but shaped comfortably. The ink flows very well, and the ink it comes
with is a very bold pretty rich blue color. I ended up buying a second one so
that I could have one with blue ink and one with purple! The pilot con-20
converter fits this pen well and is easy to use. I am glad I chose this as my
first fountain pen. It makes me want to try more of them!

, May 29, 2011
Very cute little pen, especially when paired with Pilot's purple 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. This may have more to do with
JetPens than Pilot, but there was a paper label stuck to the purple one which
left behind a nasty residue I was wiping off for the first two days or so,
thankfully it hasn't done anything to the body of the pen.

, February 15, 2011
I bought this pen about 3 weeks ago. I really like it, but I agree that the grip
takes a little getting used to. I didn't like the ink the cartridge came with,
but with some Noodler's it writes well. The nib isn't super smooth, but isn't
scratchy at all. Definitely a good value for the money.

Not sure I like the flat nib, the triangular grip worked ok for me.
Not as in love with this pen as I had hoped I'd be. The Pilot Penmanship
looks a lot nicer for nearly the same cost.
Note the supplied ink is a medium blue.
