      Being one who prefers fountain pens, I came across this interesting-looking pen. It’s a Pelikan Fountain pen, with a silver/black design. It also also included a full-sized ink cartridge, with simple packaging. This is one of Pelikan’s newest products, and it emphasizes a stylish silver design with a precise yet simple nib. Part of the design includes a slot through the center of the barrel on both sides, which gives a somewhat accurate indication of ink levels. The design of the pen definitely looks good.

      Ink converters and


      cartridges alike all work well with this pen. The simple nib works very well, and the pen works fine as a whole. There are a few issues, though. While a majority of fountain pens are made of metals, this pen is made of plastic. The plastic is of decent quality, but the pen is not well balanced. while the pen’s cap is on, it looks and feels bulky on the front end of the pen. When the cap is on the back and I’m writing, the pen ...

      • feels as if it were leaning backwards. Sure, the ink cartridge does balance the pen a little, but the overall construction of the pen feels cheap and plastic.

        This pen does have several good features that many other pens lack, though. The cross-section locks in place when screwed in, which keeps the pen aligned and the ink tightly secured. The cap locks in place very well on both ends, with that satisfying “click” sound. Despite being made of plastic, the pen clip is very sturdy and does not

        bend out of shape.

        This pen functions very well, and the design is quite good. However, its plastic body and weight imbalance make it feel cheap and hollow. I’d recommend it to those who don’t really mind how the pen feels, as long as it writes and fills correctly. I got it for 25 dollars, when I was able to pay just 20 for a steel pen that worked just as well. This pen is not such a good value, and there are much better ones out there.
