The pen is wonderful-...
, August 13, 2013
The pen is wonderful- I actually also bought the same pen with Fine medium for
myself and this one 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.
