It's hard for me to give this pen 1 star because it is my first glass dip pen,
however straight out of the box, it just doesn't want to write. I don't know
what to do with it. I've read online that sanding it down will help. Maybe I'm
using the wrong ink? I bought a bottle of the J. Herbin Pearlescent Royal Blue
ink for dip pens, but it's finicky. Sometimes it will write all of 2 letters and
sometimes it doesn't want to write at all.
I love the look of this pen because it's very clean. The writing is good, though
there is the occasional skip on printer paper and after a few times of using it,
the cap while it clicks onto the pen, the "click" doesn't feel as strong as it
was the first few times I went to use it.
