The pen is wonderful-...
, August 13, 2013
The pen is wonderful- I actually also bought the same pen with Fine nib for my
boyfriend- but the nib is terrible. There is something different about the
silver nib (came on my yellow Safari) and the black nib that comes with the
Carcoal body pen. It drags too smoothly (or so it feels) and doesnt let enough
ink out, resulting in slow starts and skipping while writing. Both the medium
and fine nibs have this problem, so its not exclusive to one pen, and the silver
nib I have does not have this problem no matter what ink I use.
The Charcoal is a cool pen and it looks great, but the black nib is terrible.
