As an art student I always end up carrying an excess of pens/pencils etc. This
pouch is great for protecting more delicate drafting pens and fountain pens, the
zippered sections are a nice addition for storying lose items. (lead, eraser
etc.) No noise while opening/closing pencil case during class. The only Con is
that the storage for the pens are a pouch, so if your pen does not have a clip
they can slip out. My solution was to store those in the zippered section, a
mild inconvenience for a nice little pouch.
A nice economical FP, writes very well with a smooth flow. If you don\'t write
with it for a few days it does tends to dry at the nib but a second of
scribbling brings it right back. Definitely recommended for a reliable everyday
FP and as a great starting pen. For the $ this is a fine work horse. The purple
is a very rich color, more on the violet side but still easy on the eyes.
Disregarding the review below, this purple is a very bright but not glaring to
the eye. This is one of my favorite for its lush coloration. Do note though that
the purple is not a true purple and lends to a slightly redder tint.
I've had this FP for about six month. It's a very versatile pen, great for
calligraphy and applicable for everyday writing. The grip is ergonomic and the
pen is light.
Have not been gentle with this pen, writing on coarse surfaces and accidentally
dropping it a few times. No problems. It's a work horse no doubt, very
satisfied. Would recommend this FP to anyone interested in having a little fun
with a versatile flat nib.
