This adorable cheap pen...
, October 6, 2013
This adorable cheap pen is still a workhorse instead of a novelty, has a screw
cap, comes with a cartridge, and won't weigh down your bag. The Japanese have a
sensibility for cuteness that I love, and they combine it with quality and
durability even at the lowest end, which shows a respect for a masses and those
who cannot afford luxury-end pens.
I worried that the f/m nib would be too wide, but it is hardly different than
the Neo pen I bought along with it for the same price. This is a smooth firm ef
nib (in Western terms). I also love the subtle star on the cap and the etched
anchor on the nib. I might be back for more, but the black and white Holstein
is a standout and will get noticed.
