I've never owned a fountain...
, August 9, 2011
I've never owned a fountain pen before, but wow, I was surprised how smoothly
this pen writes. This pen is compact, and when posted, is long enough to fit in
my hands. It does feel a lot lighter than I would expect it to from the
pictures—perhaps you could call it cheap-feeling, but I wouldn't go that far.
I purchased this because I didn't want to throw away an otherwise good pen in
the trash whenever the ink ran out, but I've found the cartridges to run out
once a week. Granted, I bring this to work and back home, so this is the only
pen I use to write.
While I'm glad there's a screw cap—no spills yet!—I'm a bit surprised to
find out that, no fail, once the cartridge hits 10%, inks leaks all over the
Overall, I like this pen a lot, but perhaps this pen is overhyped.
