It took months of research to find a new daily writer - I finally settled on
this one and I'm glad I did. I've been using it for a little over a month and
can't put it down. The ink always starts flowing immediately (or with a little
coaxing after it's been sitting open for awhile) and there is never any
skipping. The wood body is a nice touch as well - it's never cold like some
metallic bodied pens - and it adds a somewhat rustic look to the otherwise
modern design. This has quickly replaced several others as my daily writer.
The one small complaint I've had, and have heard from other people, is that the
cap is too heavy when it's posted. It's true, but it really hasn't been a
problem, the cap just sits on the table while writing. This pen is weighted
wonderfully and it fits so well in the hand without the cap, there's no need to
On an ink level, it does come with a cartridge - and has room to carry a spare
inside - but I never used it because I immediately switched to the Kaweco
Standard Converter and use J. Herbin Inks - a personal preference, but one that
has made this pen a joy to use.
