  Nib Swap: I used parts..., January 5, 2012
By jea...
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..., July 10, 2009
Pretty cool pen, but I have a couple of concerns and probably won't order again.

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 use.

It's too bad. I love the pretty highlighters and love the idea of a refillable, disposable fountain pen.
