This is my everyday pen, so much so that I wore the nib down now that it has a
blunt side and a sharp side (after a year and a half of 4-5 pages of writing). I
think I need a new one and will buy another one. I am using the converter and
primarily using noodler's permanent and it does not bleed through other pages
even with the fact that it is a calligraphy pen. There is some bleed through
with the noodler's eel ink though it is a bit more viscous.
Its built strong and has not cracked or shattered with repeated use and sticking
with heavy books in my messenger bag. Hell even the pelikan logo has not wore
down that bad.
