I just picked this up from W*******s, with all these bad reviews in mind, and
was somewhat surprised they really carried it. I popped the ink cartridge in,
tapped it a couple times on a hard surface (cap-side down), and it wrote. It
writes surprisingly well: the nib has a pleasant friction to it, and the ink
flows freely for me. I left it uncapped for about a minute and tried writing, it
still wrote, which is more than I can ask from a fountain pen. It writes in the
expected range of angles for fountain pens (I have quite a few fountain pens).
One star off for the styling, however, I don't like the way the pen looks
capped. This will replace my "cheap, take anywhere, maybe give away after a
while" fountain pen since I gave away my Petit1.
