I have several of these, but Orange is definitely my favorite. I've had to
defend it from my pen-pilfering sister several times, and I now jealously guard
it in my main pen case. It's a great color and a great line width, and I enjoy
this pen a ton, especially for making notes on papers that I'm proofreading.
I love using this pen for my daily planner, it's the easiest and simplest way to
carry 4 different colors for marking different things, such as homework,
classes, assignments, and meetings, without having to carry a separate pen case
for the colors I use in my planner.
The colors are easy to change in and out of the body, simply flip up the top and
slide out the old ones, and in the new.
I won this in a contest a while back, and I do love it for making varied thick
and thin, smooth lines--the ink cartridge lasts quite a while, I'm still on the
The brush is the perfect size, not too thin, not too thick, and the fact that
you can cap it up and use it to draw anywhere doesn't hurt either!
Definitey a great pen. I've already started doodling with it.
For those without a desk pen holder--you can use the cap that comes with it. It
works just fine, and no one will give it a second look. the only issue is that
it slips out of the cap, and doesn't snap on or anything. but if you have an art
bag or a pencil case that fits it perfectly, it's no biggie.
I love how it writes, a really nice thin line, no bleeding, no issues
The little silver ring does come off when you unscrew the body, though. So be
sure not to lose it when you're using the carts sometime.
What jetpens says _is_ wrong, I got two Sailor cartridges with my pen, along
with the box of them I bought to use with it. The ink that comes with it is a
good, dark black, and you get two of them--plenty since it's a very thin-writing
I like this pen. and I can't wait to get a desk pen holder for it.
This pen, I've dropped it, I've had to push the nib back in, I've had to take it
apart and clean it out, then let it dry completely, I've refilled it at least 20
times now because I use it every day to take notes in my classes.
The left-handed grip works perfectly, and this nib has been put through
proverbial bootcamp. I've managed to bend the entire thing up by dropping it and
then back again with a paper towel, and it still writes smoothly.
Sure, it's not elegant, or fancy, or a $200 monteblanc, but if you want
something that "takes a licking and keeps on ticking"(or writing, as it may be),
this is the pen to get. And at $11.50, once you do destroy it, it's easily
Got this in my last order, and I absolutely love it. It's still the ink
cartridge that was sent with it, and it doesn't come with a shmancy ink
converter or nib cleaner or anything, but it does work beautifully and has a
very nice feel to it.
I'm slowly but surely choosing pelikan as my favorite fountain pen company to
The ink in the included cartridge is a blue-black, and I like using it for
everyday writing, because the tip is small enough to not lay down too much ink
that it bleeds through paper, but still a nice calligraphy nib for
letter-writing and the like.
Heartily recommended to anyone who's making the transition from a regular
fountain pen to a calligraphy pen. or starting out in calligraphy.
