Verified Purchase
Nice pen for those with big hands, but the grip could stand to have a more checkered grip; the existing grip gets hard to hold when the grip or your skin dries out,

Verified Purchase
Best inexpensive fountain pen I've ever had, bar none. Better than many I've had that were three and four time the money.

One note: You really need the Nakimi refills or bottled ink as other inks are thicker and gum up the nibs ink flow,

Verified Purchase
Nice pen for details work on tight lined paper. The nib seems to pull down and block the ink flow, but a bit of extra pressure to bend it UP seems to help. Sure with the Pilot Metropolitan came with this nib (XF)!!!

Good tone after a sentence or two is written. This works very well in the Pilot Metropolitan with Fine nib and the Pilot Penmanship pen with the Extra Fine nib. I had used Lamy Blue-Black, but found its thicker viscosity tended to gum up the nibs.

Soon I'll be getting a Pilot Original Cuson in XF and my guess is that it'll be the one that won't block up the nib.

For one with arthritis and large hands, this is my #1 pen for any kind of writing.

Even better, the Uniball UMR-83 and 85 fit this exactly like the original. I need a finer point to make my hand writing legible (even to me), and these non-standard refills work just fine.

Writes well enough on a very smooth surface, but on a legal pad or a standard spiral notebook, forget it.

Now, in my journal with smooth pages, it is like silk.

Great refill, but like others mentioned, the cost is nuts.

Terrific color...for the first two or three words. It flows like a high viscosity motor oil, but color-wise, this is what a blue-black ink should be.
