  Thought I would love..., August 7, 2013
Thought I would love it, but I should have listened to the reviews. Maybe it is just my pen, but the feed is so close to the tip that it drags on the paper unless I make sure to hold the pen a certain way. I wonder how this pen would do with regular water-based ink. Still, it was only $6, and I would give the fine point version a chance. I am quite used to Asian fines and EF nibs, but this one writes dry for me (and I know it is possible for even XXF nibs to not be dry writers). I tried to open the tines a tiny bit with a pin but didn't get much more flow.

You could stab someone with this sharp nib, which the instructions warn against. My nib is a bit scratchy too, which EFs don't have to be -- see the black Pilot Penmanship for a great example of a smooth wet Asian EF, which is an American XXF. Ah well, live and learn. I still love the great selection and pricing here, as well as the free shipping for a low amount.
