If one desires an inexpensive pen with a well-made extra-fine nib (Japanese
fine= Euro extra-fine), and excellent ink flow, this is a terrific fountain pen.
It writes the way a fountain pen should! No pressing required. The nib glides
across the surface of the paper laying down a lovely, narrow line.
I have mine filled with a Sailor blue-black pigment ink cartridge and it handles
beautifully. No skipping; no false starts--as a matter of fact, it started
writing almost the instant I inserted the cartridge!
For those who like to post the cap of the pen on the barrel while writing, the
pen has a nice feature. The cap snaps onto the end of the barrel and won't fall
Say I forget to use this pen, and the pigment ink dries out in the feed. If I
can't flush it out, no worries! It's not expensive! But I imagine I can clean
the feed, if that happens, because all Sailor pens are of good design.
