This was my first fountain pen, and I love it. The ink comes out as soon as you
put the tip to the paper. I have little experience with fountain pens, so I
don't know how it compares to others, but it's good enough for me.
The lead rotation mechanism works great and keeps the lead sharp. It's great for
writing and doing math problems on small pieces of paper. The grip is minimal,
which I like. The space for holding lead could be larger, but it's big enough
