Hongdian 6013 Black Dahlia Fountain Pen

Regular price $21.95 Save $-21.95
115 in stock
For a pen at this price point, one might expect a cheaply made fountain pen. What is presented with the Hongdian Black Dahlia, however, is a quite surprising experience. Made from thick metal, it features a textured, cross hatch pattern throughout the body, which is accented beautifully by a subtle, smooth finished cap and grip section. It is a cartridge/converter filling mechanism, and comes with a converter attached for use with bottled ink.

Great quality, affordable fountain pen

This pen flows well, fills easily, has a nice grip, and has good weight to it!

What a nice pen!

Received my pen today (THANK YOU for that quick shipping). Inked the pen with Iroshizuku take-sumi. The pen has a great balance, a stealth look, nice grip, intriguing etching on the cap and the cap screws on and off and posts well. What a find...what a treat! Thanks much Truphae team for your pen curation

Nice pen with solid feel!

Received in my March Inkredible Box. I really like the substantial feel and weight of this pen, and am also a fan of the screw on cap. The matte finish on the barrel appears to be covered in a light rubber grip coating, we'll have to see how long it lasts. I loaded this up with the Monteverde Gratitude Magenta ink that came in the same box. It is one of three pens that I use pretty much daily, with this one being used in my journal when I want a splash of color.

Amazing pen and even better price point

I got this as part of the Inkcredible subscription plan. Never would have tried it otherwise, and damn, am I glad I got to try it! It's such a beautiful writer and feels very good in hand - heavy, but not too heavy. The nib writes on the wetter side which is great for me. Love everything about this pen. Can't say enough about it!

Smooth writer, sexy style

I was pleased to receive this pen in my first Inkmeister (entry level) subscription box, along with samples of Monteverde emotions collection ink. This is my first fountain pen, except for some disposables, and in the past month of daily use I have found it beautiful and a pleasure to use. My first impression was of a nicely weighty, quality pen. It comes in a modest but gift-worthy box. There’s not another way to say the all black in different textures and finishes has a sexy aesthetic vibe. The all metal construction feels solid without being fatiguing to write with. The finish of the barrel is matte, with a texture that is secure and pleasant to hold. The cap screws on solidly. It does post, but I find it a comfortable length without and prefer to avoid the weight. The design on the bottom of the cap adds interest without being flowery. Maybe most importantly, the nib is very smooth to write with and starts reliably every time. Absolutely un-finicky! The converter is easy to use and holds a reasonable amount of ink: I take notes during meetings throughout my work day and have refilled it every 5-7 days. I don’t see this brand recommended for beginners on blogs, etc. (maybe because of lack of exposure/familiarity), but I think it would make a great first pen or everyday pen for an enthusiast.
