I got this pen because it is retractable. However, due to the price point I'm
hesitant to take it to work (where I need the convenience of a retractable pen).
The pink Capless Decimo writes smoothly, but I think the Pilot Cavalier may have
a finer line. The clip near the grip is not in my way. The shape of the pen and
the shiny finish makes my fingers slip (even with very dry hands). The Capless
Decimo is a good pen, but I prefer to use the Cavalier.
This pen writes OK, but really not worth the price. The pen is constructed out
of light weight plastic. The retraction mechanism feels "cheap". If you are
looking for a good roller ball pen, try the Tombow Zoom. I love my Lamy fountain
pens for their quality and style, but this pink Tipo roller ball pen is not up
to the normal Lamy standards.
Oxblood color is true to its name. It is a dark purple-y, red. On white and
ivory paper the color is saturated. This isn't exactly the color I was looking
for, but I got exactly what I bought. I'm still looking for a deep, dark red
without purple or brown undertones.
This is a gorgeous pen and writes just as well (with a cartridge). I haven't
tried this pen with the converter yet. I don't normally purchase pens that are
thin and with fine nibs, but this pen is certainly the exception. The pen is
light weight, but well balanced- no hand fatigue yet. I am considering
purchasing the dark blue Cavalier in the future.
Deep, dark green! Very rich color, it looks fantastic on ivory (and white)
paper! I put this ink in my Lamy Studio (fine nib) and noticed shading from dark
green to almost black. I'm really happy with the color and quality of this
Great value for a fountain pen. The Sailor HighAce writes with a true fine line,
but does not feel very scratchy. I normally prefer a medium width nib, but this
pen is great when I want a fine line. I purchased black ink cartridges and a
converter- both work well in this pen.
I love the vivid pink body color. The classic design is also a plus. However, it
definitely is a fine point and does feel slightly scratchy on paper. I am
ordering the medium to see if the writing is any smoother.
