The pen is excellent, really. It writes very well and has this very crisp,
scratchy sound when you write with it that I very much enjoy. The Japanese MF
nib is very agreeable. Oddly enough, it writes better on note cards which makes
it a very nice pen to take notes with. The problem I have with it, leaving me to
give it a 3 star review, is the problem with leaking. For whatever reason, this
is the leakiest pen I have ever used. Maybe it is just mine, or maybe it comes
from the fact that I use cartridges with it, but it leaks heavily at random
points. While I do enjoy using the pen, it is frustrating to take it to and from
somewhere and have the cap and body be dotted with ink.
Without the leaking, and a better price (since its mostly plastic), this is a 5
star pen, and very very good for a starter level fountain pen. Just be wary of
the problems it may have.
