I received this Pen in my March Truephae box and it came with Conklin's Bright red ink. I am over the moon at how well made this pen is. It is heavy enough for a serious day of writing and yet light enough to not cramp the hand. It does not post which I do usually prefer, but I love the smooth writing nib so much that I do not mind having to hold a pen top on a daily just to keep putting miles on this beautiful pen. I could see this as a good pen to give a student or someone who does a lot of letter writing for pen paling or other reasons. Wonderful choice of pen.
