I am a fan of Pelikan 4001 Black and Turquoise ink. Both are wonderful in pens that need a slightly drier ink to write well. I am not enamored of the red. I found it thin, unsaturated and fading. There are many other better reds out there, also in standard carts. Do yourself a favor and keep on testing new reds and find something better than this one.

I bought this pen in order to pirate the medium italic nib and place it in my Pilot Prera. However, I found the purple color so cheerful that I left the medium nib from the Prera in it, gave it a converter and am now using it as a fountain pen in my rotation. The plastic of the body is light and feels cheap, I find that the carts and converters dry up faster than in my Prera, but otherwise it is a nice little desk pen. As long as you are not too hard on it, I think that it would prove to be a serviceable pen or a starter pen to see if you like to use italic nibs.

Among artists, there are constant pen reviews of which pen gives the best "white ink". Hands down, I think that this one is the bomb. It writes a smooth line, the white is pure white and it gives great coverage over the paper. I use this one over black ink or on black paper and the pen will produce the proper white highlights that I need for my art journals. If you are looking for a great white ink pen for an art journal. Stop. This is it.

I love my pilot coleto multi-pen. I pair it up with a fine fountain pen with black ink and they both go with me everywhere. I like to use the coleto for color coding and editing. Because of this, I find that the brown simply doesn't work for me. It is a nice dark brown, almost black. The cart produces a smooth, thin line that never skips. The quality is there, but I am not as fond of the color as I thought I would be.

I love my pilot coleto multi-pen. It goes with me everywhere. I am not as happy with this green as I could be. I think that I would prefer a brighter and more cheerful hue than this dark green. However, it is dark, smooth, and never skips. Just what you want in a pen. If you love darker greens, you might want to try this one. If you prefer a more cheerful color, perhaps the apple green would be more to your liking.

I love my Pilot Coleto pen. This red is the color I use the most since I edit stories for my writing critique groups with it. The ink is dark, smooth and puts down a smooth line. The only drawback is that the carts don't hold too much ink. Considering they are part of a multi-pen system, I suppose that I should not be surprised by this. Great color. You should try it out.

I use this color in my Pilot Coleto Pen. The violet is one of my favorite colors. It is usually the color people pick when they borrow my pen.

Verified Purchase
I love the retro 51 roller balls. They have smooth clean lines, dark ink and are heavy, well made pens. They look expensive, but are quite affordable. This one is the lacquered purple. The color is a cheerful purple and the pen feels smooth in your hand. I own a couple of these retro 51s. You can't go wrong with them.

I find the nib holder...
Verified Purchase
I find the nib holder to be very comfortable to hold and I love the natural mahogany wood. However, the nib it came with is stuck and I can't exchange it for a new nib. I have used the nib and find it acceptable for writing, but I would have rather been able to put in the antique nibs I've been collecting. I am going to have to find another nib for this use.

I use this pen to sketch with. It is a fountain pen designed to use Platinum carbon ink carts. It seals up well and always starts. It has a very fine, solid line. While I would not use it for handwriting due to the ultra fine nib, for sketching it has proven to be a great pen. Buy one. You'll love it.
