Really great pen, especially...
January 16, 2014
Really great pen, especially at the sale price. When I first received it I was
anxious to get it started, and I just inserted the cartridge that came with it
without flushing it with water first; it wrote well but the first stroke on each
letter didn't have any ink flow. I took the cartridge out, put a drop of liquid
soap inside and then flushed it like crazy, let it dry, then inserted another
cartridge (the Kaweco sepia, sweet color) and primed it by squeezing just a
little, and now it writes like a champ. I wrote for a couple hours the first
night with no skips or blobs or misses. I can't believe I didn't buy one of
these years ago. The first fountain pen I ever tried was a big heavy brick of a
thing that needed constant care, and it turned me off fountain pens for a long
time, but I couldn't resist this print and price of this one, and I'm really
glad I bought it. Can't wait to collect more colors and sizes!
