I mainly purchased this pen for my J. Herbin Gris Nuage (cloud gray) bottle of
ink, others have claimed that a medium nib and this particular ink look
fantastic and they weren't kidding. The pen itself is gorgeous, like the
previous reviewer said, the pictures don't quite do it justice. It has a sleek
modern design and the zigzag pattern adds an element of elegance for an overall
lovely look. Even the packaging it came in is fantastic, much sturdier than my
Lamy Safari paper box. Back to the pen, it's a little on the heavy side, which
may be a problem for long extended writing sessions. The nib is smooth and
consistent, I've had no problems with skipping or feathering. The converter it
comes with holds a good deal of ink and is rather easy to use.
Overall, this is a brilliant fountain, especially for the price considering it
also comes with it's own converter. I would highly recommend this fountain pen
to both beginners and veterans alike.
