Bought the pen, then read the review. Did have the initial inkflow problem, but
have experienced this before with steel nibs, so decided to 'run it in'. This
meant a couple of minutes trying to write on rough paper. No problems with
inkflow thereafter, and writes well.
However, decided that a converter was required because of the cost of Zebra
cartridges and no substitute cartridges that fitted. Found that a Parker (deluxe
version) converter did the job. The cost of these is well above the pen, but a
better option than cartridges.
Reasonable value for the price. The pen cost v cartridge cost equation doesn't
cut it though.
