This pen is just eh....

This pen is just eh. My first experience w Kaweco - inherently it's not a BAD
pen, it's just NOT very GOOD. It's okay for the price and I like the German
pedigree. The writing experience leaves a lot to be desired. It's got a
scratchy nib (mine anyway) and bleeds like a mofo. As someone mentioned, the
ink kind of fades and sort of looks gray instead of a dark blue or black (Kaweco
cartridges). Plus it BLEEDS like a stuck pig on my Moleskine .... mind you this
is a M nib, so those interested should really go for a F or EF. All in all, its
pretty, and while posted is not horribly uncomfortable. It lives in my shirt
pocket because its small and unobtrusive while capped, which is a plus.
My verdict is a B-. Nice effort.
