THIS pen was expensive. If you just want something to write with, there are cheaper fountain pens. However, the pen is neat, different. I was looking for a desk pen.Amazon has all kinds of pens, fountain included, but next to no desk fountain pens. This one fills the bill.
What I like about the pen:
It’s neat, a fun thing to have on your desk and a conversation piece
It is smooth and has a really light touch when writing. Like writing with a feather
What I don’t like:
Cats think it is a play toy at night. I find it off its pedestal in the morning (I put it on the pedestal in the
The pedestal doesn’t enclose the pen; it still has a cover you must remove to use it
The pen fits in the holder upside down. This means of course, the top won’t become filled with spilled ink,
but it also means you have to turn it right side up and remove the cap before you can use it.
Instructions are inadequate; e.g., they did not tell or show me how to expose the nib so I could write.
Since the whole pedestal is a magnet (so the pen will hang freely, it grabs the pen and you have to pick up
the pedestal to separate pen from it. You have to use force to get past the edges of the holder and put
the pen in its suspended place.
Read independent reviews before buying to ensure you really want to spend the money on something that is a gadget as well as a good fountain pen.
I will keep the pen, but had I read reviews first I would not have spent the money on it.
