This is a cool pen. It is a little heavy for long use, and of course it feels different because of the texture. It writes more like a medium nib. Fun pen.
The smoothest writing pen I have ever used, the nib is bit too broad for my liking but other than that no complaints even looks more expensive than what is actually is and for that I get a lot of compliments
The "labyrinth" pattern isn't much of a labyrinth because the cut-outs don't connect to each other, but it still looks very striking and cool. I bought the brass and the gunmetal and the brass definitely shows off the pattern more dramatically. They are both surprisingly smooth writers for the price point. The gunmetal one is a little difficult to uncap. I actually stabbed myself in the palm with the nib when uncapping it. The cutouts are also a little sharp, which isn't too big of a deal if you hold the pen down at the section. All in all, they are not perfect, but they are very nice and very unique pens. For $6.50 on sale, I think it was an incredible value.
I have tried a handful of fountain pens all to disappointing results. This is the first pen that out of the box it wrote and is still writing.
My daughter gave this pen to me as a gift and I am absolutely in love with it. This is my first fountain pen so I have nothing to compare it with, but how did I ever exist before? It writes so smoothly, I'm always looking for something to write. Taking notes and making lists on paper is now fun!
