Pros - the colour is so pretty! The ink is smooth, easy to write with and does
not stain the page. The pen is comfotable enough and quite attractive.
Cons - while the ink is ersable the way the 'eraser' is designed is not as good
as it could be. The cap is the eraser and it does not do as good of a job as
the frixion erasers, it is quite hard and will ruin thinner paper. However, if
you use a frixion eraser on the fanthom ink it works a treat! The ink itself is
a little thin and gives the impression that it is running out, similar to the
early frixion pens.
Overall - I like this pen. It is the only one of this brand I have tried so I
cannot compare the brand overall, however, this pen has made it into my regulars
with the frixions. I do prefer the frixion series because the eraser works
better and I love side-knock (no caps to loose) and the ink has become more
pigmented. If the next generation fanthom had a better eraser, no cap and more
pigment (without leaving a stain) I would def be buying more colours.
