A very interesting pen with excellent smoothness that belies its modest price.
Please note that I've determined that Platinum Fountain Pen Dye-Based Ink
Cartridges fit this pen and are able to provide good ink flow. Also, I've found

the wick and the rest of the pen section, even if the pen has been left for a
few days and the ink has started to dry. I see the Platinum cartridge as a good
solution to the permanent clogging problem caused by this pen's OEM ink, as
mentioned in other posts.
I'm no fan of how this pen delivers ink from cartridge to nib, but by using the
Platinum cartridges, the pen will tolerate normal use and will live to write
