The pen is beautiful. I wanted to love it… but it’s the pen I use the least. As the other reviewer noted, it skips and pressure in the chamber drops quickly. I usually have to give a half turn so it will write for a page or so. You can’t really post this pen - it’s awkward. The balance on it’s own is OK. Should I try other Conklin pens?
I like Conklin pen, so I bought this one. It has been a great disappointment to me. The nib skips. I cleaned it out with fountain pen cleaner but that didn't help much. This pen looks great and I really wanted it to write well. I'm going to contact the company.
