So far I have been pleased with what I am getting, a good value. I think a nice option would be able to select pen or ink or maybe have them alternate so the value could be higher for each.
I received a Kaweco Perkeo pen with a medium nib. I was so excited because I didn’t mention that Medium is my favorite size nib! The pen is amazingly smooth to write with and feels perfect in my hand. It’s in a limited edition color that makes it kind of cool. I would prefer a more girly color but I love the pen nonetheless.
The ink I received is sooo beautiful. It’s a deep purple with shimmer in it. It’s exactly what I would want from a subscription. Something really special. It’s a full bottle of Colorverse Glistening Series in Hayabusa! It’s gorgeous!
So, I'm pretty new to the fountain pen hobby. And admittedly, I don't know as much as some who've been in it for a longer time. But I feel like this sub box, at this price point, is an incredible deal! What I paid was $30, but I got $40+ in the ink and pen! Who'd have thought they'd send a Perkeo as the 'test' pen?! I was expecting probably a Jinhao or something similar. If you're wondering if you should get this, at least get yourself a one-time box. See if you like it! But be warned: you will!
The value of my box did not exceed what I paid. It may have been cheaper than their sites costs but not cheaper than Amazon. Still evaluating if I will continue after the trail. This would need to change if I were to continue.
I love the ink. It is not something that I would have bought for myself. It made me realize why my father love fountain pens. In addition, they added the Kaweco pen. I love the inkmeister premium monthly subscription that I decided to just discontinue it and upgrade to the premium penthusiast monthly subscription.
