Nib Swap: I used parts of this pen to 'upgrade' my Plaisir 'Fine' to a 'Medium'
nib instead. The nib is a little to scratchy for the sketch book I am writing
in, but I think with usage, time, and perhaps some minor adjustment to make the
nib 'wetter' it will be perfect. I actually don't know how this pen writes
because I used it for parts :)

Pretty cool pen, but I have a couple of concerns and probably won't order
The red is on the pink side, it's not a good deep crimson. Not really a problem,
just need to be aware of it.
The other problem is the same problem I've had with all my preppy fountain pens,
the plastic is brittle (for lack of a better word) and the caps especially have
a tenancy to crack on you. Once the cap cracks, it doesn't stay on the pen well
and the tip tends to dry out. I've bought 3 of these over the years and the caps
cracked on two of them. One I dropped, but the other cracked just from normal
It's too bad. I love the pretty highlighters and love the idea of a refillable,
disposable fountain pen.
