  I’ve been testing out..., January 18, 2014
I’ve been testing out this pen today in my sketchbook and although I really do love the pen it has many faults. I don’t mind them but other might.

The pros: The pen is very fine but you can get the line to vary a bit in size. It is very good for detail as long as you are careful. (If you aren’t used to “fountain” pens you might not want to start off inking something you really like until you can control the pen a bit more.) With this pen you can be very loose and at the same time sharp. The lines van curve beautifully without any trouble. So far I haven’t gotten any blots from the ink and the color of my pen is a nice dark color. I like the look of the pen and it fits in my hand well. This is nice to have instead of carrying around and ink jar nibs and the handle for inking things oh course it’s a bit different but it’s really up to the personal preference.

The cons: The pen started off very scratchy and no ink came out until a bit of awkward waiting (since you can’t shake the pen) I first started with writing to test it out and the ink just did not flow right (so I recommend drawing lines on a scrap paper until the ink starts to flow.) Sometimes I noticed paper or clotting at the end of the nib, which was easy enough to get rid of (this was without putting to much pressure on the pen.) Another fault is if you try to erase if you are inking the pen can smudge even after a few minutes and even if its just a line. Also unlike the copic Multiliner (depending on the version) you can’t refill these or replace he nib.
