This is a second review...
Verified Purchase
This is a second review of this pen. I'm still very happy with the way it writes and feels, but unfortunately for some unknown reason today when I took off the cap to use it, ink went EVERYWHERE. It was leaking badly!!!! Ruined my knew girafe onesy and all over my hands. Looks really bad, like I've cut myself in a bad way. Red ink too!!! I'm very disappointed that this has happened. Has this happened to anyone else? Is there something I may be doing wrong. Can someone help me out please???

Although the description says "Fine", the pen I bought, is in fact a Medium point. When I bought it only medium was available.

It NEVER dries up, seriously. Sometimes I go up to a month without using it and it flows from the very first swipe on the paper.

Very lovely pink colour. I personally prefer to put the lid on to make it longer although it does get a big heavy at times.

Downfall, is that it is so smooth it sometimes slips between my fingers when writing.

A very good medium point but have now realised that I should have waited for the fine points to come into stock, which I believe they are now.

The ink colour is gorgeous, and it has a very comfortable, smooth, rubbery grip. Only downfall is it quite scratchy to write with.

Georgeous colour and super soft feel. Good grip. Only drawback, if you can call it that, is that the 0.3 leads break ever so easily. I am probably too heavy on them so they snap all the time. Just need to learn patience when using it.

It's a very good converter and functions very well according to it's specifications, however, it's very hard to see just how much ink it has actually suctioned, or even to be able to check how much ink is left. You just have to play it by ear.

It fits very well into my Cavalier, snug fit and has not leaked.

This is a beautiful, very elegant pen. The colour is just as lovely as it is in the pictures. It took me a long time to break it in as I found it very scratchy at the beginning but now writes like a dream. It looks more expensive than it is. It will not dissapoint.

Whilst loving it's slenderness, I hate that I have to use the Pilot Con-20 converter as opposed to the Con-50 which is a piston filling converter which is too fat to fit into the barrel of this Cavalier.

I would like to know however if the nib can be unscrewed for a more thorough clean. Does anyone know for sure. I don't want to touch it in case I break it.

Verified Purchase
I originally wanted it in the brown because it looked nicer in the pictures, but it was out of stock for a long time, so being the patient kitten that I am, I said, "can't wait anymore, get the black", so I did.

It is lovely. Smooth and very elegant looking. Excellent for even a ladies handbag because it just fits upright into those corners that are usually empty because nothing can quite fit in there and ends up in the middle of the handbag.

I don't know about other people but mine holds 11 pens plus accessories. I have included in those 13, a Prera, a Cavalier and an Tasche Ohto, all fountain pens. A Filofax Pen and Pencil set which are quite fat, a Uni Propus Window highlighter, a Pilot Air Blanc mechanical pencil, a Pilot Juice Pen, a Sephora nourishing cuticle oil pen, 3 different packs of leads, a pack of mini erasers, and there is room for two more pens to sit comfortably.

I love it.

Wonderful service again from Jet Pens. Thank you.

I bought this for my little nephew and he loves it. Stands very sturdy on the table when opened and folded back. Holds more pens than the description says. Very true to the colour in the pictures.

So cute. I love these purses because you just pull it open towards you and the coins come out on to the lid which acts as a little sorting tray. Much better than a conventional purse.

A comeback for these old fashioned purses but with a modern twist adding a smiley and the silicon fabric.

I think I'll get my nephew one too!

As always, an excellent service from Jet Pens! Thank you.

VERY IMPORTANT - DO NOT...

VERY IMPORTANT - DO NOT SCRAPE OFF OR TRY TO REMOVE THE RED WAX COVERING THE SCREW-ON CAP.

WHY? - because you don't have to, it just screws off and the red wax is to make it look pretty and old-fashioned.
I'm such a divvy, my husband still can't stop laughing at the memory of me scrapping, cutting, slicing, peeling the red, wax-like covering on the screw-on cap. I only managed to get tiny bits off, when my brain went into gear and I turned it and guess what? - IT TURNED AND UNSCREWED just like it's supposed to.

OK, silly aside... It really is beautiful ink. It's very late at night which means I have artificial light on now, and, I don't know if that is the reason, but I can't see that rusty, goldy effect, perhaps tomorrow in natural daylight, but I can however, appreciate the lovely red colour and it is so smooth.

The bottle is a work of art, and thanks to my cutting, slicing and peeling mine looks even more antique, like something found in the Titanic's recovered items.

Very attractive exterior and contains a beautiful, smooth ink that is now one of my favorites.

Excellent service again from Jet Pens. Thank you!!!
