I want to update my prior review, now that I own 10+ of these pens and have been using them regularly.
They write beautifully when you first ink them. But I've noticed that
- ink dries out of the cartridge quickly (eg after 5-7 days of nonuse). like, disappears!
- pens are very prone to clogging (eg after 1 day of nonuse). shimmer and sheening inks clog TERRIBLY.
Otherwise I love the pens.
i had low expectations of this pen but OMG - it writes sooo smoothly that i came back to buy the other colors. it also feels a little heavy / substantial in the hand. it's better than pens that cost 4x as much.
Writes so smoothly and looks stunning! I’m happily surprised because it was so reasonably priced.
I have one of the very expensive well-known brands of fountain pens. I’ve been joyed it for years. But I must say I am totally in love with this purple fountain pen! I’m using it in my travelers notebooks. I have filled it with ink but I also found the ink cartridge works beautifully as well !! Highly recommend. In fact, I will be purchasing more to give us Christmas gifts this year!
My first time using a fountain pen and I’m pleased that it was so easy to use.
