First of all, I have...

First of all, I have to say that I own the Platinum Carbon Desk Pen and that
(along with the Carbon Ink) is probably one of the nicest pens I've ever used.
This means that the Sailor Recycled Material Desk Fountain Pen had a lot to live
up to in order to get a spot in my daily rotation of pens to use. What I found
was that this pen, along with the Sailor Nano Ink, has exceeded my expectations
and has secured that spot in the rotation.
The pen is slender, but the fatter part at the tip allows for easy holding. The
nib is SUPER fine, writing what seems to be a crisp, non-feathering 0.3mm line.
This line is SERIOUSLY fine. I am thinking that narrowly-ruled journal paper is
going to be where this pen gets major usage. Maybe the fine nib is the right
width for normal usage, but this extra fine nib writes VERY smoothly and the
line is dark and tight...just really thin!
A WONDERFUL PEN and one I'd recommend to anyone to keep at their desk for
writing letters, taking notes or journaling. This might also be good for fine
As a note, I have a pen cup with a paper towel in the bottom and not a desk
holder. This doesn't seem to affect the pen, at all.
FIVE STARS and I will be giving this as gifts to people whom I know are serious
