I am a fan of carbon fiber and this is a very unique pens. The first impression
is .. this pen is very very light. The lightest fountain pen I ever use. But
don't be fooled by its weight, it is a very comfortable writing instrument. The
second impression ... OMG, I just spend $250 for a pen!!
Well, if you ask me if this pen worth $250, the answer is yes and no. I collect
Tombow pens since they come out with a "fish shaped" pen in 1983. Ever since
that, I own every single Tombow pens and pencils in every possible color and
variation. So, yes I am crazy about tombow pens. So, for me, this pen worth
The barrel of this pen is made of real carbon fiber. Feel kind of like plastic
but much more sturdier. It have a good balance with a superb nib. The nib
itself is a tad thicker compare to the pilot nib. This medium nib is more like
broad. This is the fountain pen that I use the most together with my Pilot
Decimo. 4 stars for the premium price.
