Writing with the pen is good, but I find filling it with ink quite difficult. More ink on my hands than in the pen! Perhaps more practice is required?
This calligraphy pen is a very good alternative to the other pricy option that easily costs you over $200. Given enough practice, I found the pen's (nicely) back weighted design actually helps "bounce" the nib when writing, The nib is a bit scratchy but I used Myron paper to smooth it out a bit and it doesn't bother me anymore. It offers very good flex and the flex is responsive as well! At this price range I must say I have no major complain at all. Just note that you should use ink like Monteverde with ink treatment technology (ITF), or similar kind that will help the ink flow. The "white" color one is actually like ivory color which is exactly what I wanted. Only one minor issue though: the clip was slanted to the left, not completely straight and the twine is actually slightly off. If the quality control can be tighten up a bit to fix all these issues: scratchiness, clip, twine alignment, this pen can easily be the affordable grail pen for any fountain pen lover.
