Like patterns of speech, handwriting is an expression of personality. The Rotring ArtPen is an ideal tool to express the art of handwriting. Its calligraphy nibs, crafted from the finest stainless steel, turn every piece of writing into a small work of art. The ArtPen is made of matte acrylic resin and has a hand-polished steel nib.
Love at first stroke.
Seriously, as soon as I started using this pen, it was love. The flow was
consistent and started up pretty quickly after I began using it. It's good,
solid plastic, and very light (a plus for anyone who always needs to have their
pens in their bag like I do!). It's very durable and I've gone without using it
for a few weeks sometimes and never experienced any problems with the ink drying
out, which is a huge plus for me.
The one downside of this pen is that the back end is tapered (you can see that
in the picture), which means that the cap can't sit on the end of it. I'm always
worried I'm going to lose it!
Now a word of warning, the default ink that comes inside it is NOT waterproof.
It will not hold up to washes. While that can create some neat effects, I bought
the converter and put in my own waterproof ink.
