I liked it so much, I actually got the ballpoint for the items I cannot use a fountain pen.

It is a beautiful pen to look at with a very classic style and it writes beautifully too.

Look and feel: 4/5. As I had expected more or less. Weight is 18g unposted, and 30g posted. I would have preferred a little bit heavier, maybe 35g posted. The size of the pen vs the size of my hands means I will use it posted almost every time. The sterling silver has that matte elegance you're looking for. On the minus side, the box might go for a gift box, but it is not made of wood or anything truly lasting, rather some kind of hard cardboard material, though elegant.

Machinery: Never tried the piston, took it out and put in the cartridge. Works.

Writing: 5/5. It skips for about 10 cm when having rested for a day. But I think I'll use the advice of washing it with a mild soapy detergent. Once it writes the flow is really smooth.

Summary: Like the pen a lot, especially the classical-yet-modern style.

PS. Being a nickel allergic, I tested the sterling silver (925) of my pen for nickel content. A test purchased at the local pharmacy revealed that there was no nickel content >10 ppm in my pen (the normal nickel threshold level for allergic reactions is said somewhere to be 11 ppm, even though that is individual).

It is not as smooth starting off as I had thought it would be. I have several fountain pens (Cross, Montblanc); I found that the Parker skips and "drags" a little when I first took it out of the box and for the first few times I used it. If I let it sit in a drawer for a few days and don't use it, the problem recurs. I did find that it gets better and develops a much smoother line the more I use it. I have been using it daily now for about a month and it is a pleasure to write with. Someone else may the same experience; be persistent; the more you use it the better it gets.

This pen is a knockout - a real beauty. It is the most expensive pen I have ever bought and I don't regret it. It looks good and it writes nicely. Very smooth. It has a good weight to it without being overly heavy or large. I have a small, delicate hand and yet find this comfortable. Now, about skipping. I've noticed a few reviews complaining. When I first got this pen I was annoyed as it skipped badly. I was about to return it but first decided to do some research (glad I did) and here is what I learned. No new fountain pen should skip. There is no such thing as a break-in period as some suggest. What is being broken in is usually your hand. Seriously, every fountain pen has a "sweet spot" and you have to find it. Try rotating the nib left or right or hold the pen flatter or more upright. (Wish I'd known this years ago.) After reading this, I immediately picked up the pen and found the sweet spot and it wrote immediately like a dream and still does. I actually bought two different Parker pens at the same time and had the same trouble with the other one and found that both pens need to be held with the top of the nib face more to the left than I am used to. My theory is that Parker is grinding all the nibs the same way - at least they are consistent. If you cannot find the sweet spot and it is still skipping then there may be machine oil left in the pen and you can try cleaning it but I feel that with an expensive pen if it skips and you cannot find a sweet spot then you should return it. Hope this helps.

Pen arrived two weeks ago. I filled it with Pilot's Namiki tsuki-yo. I was expecting the pen to take some time to begin writing smoothly, but this pen started off terrifically. And yes, I ordered the ink converter at the same time I ordered the pen.

I half filled a page with test writing and then proceeded to use the pen intermittently over the past week for notes and lists.

Yes, the pen does not immediately start, but no fountain pen I've ever owned has. My dang cross gold pen can take a lot of lines before it begins to keep steady. My sheaffer white dot, also gold, depending on how long it has sat can start within a few letters to taking almost as long as the cross if it has sat a couple of weeks.

I've learned to keep paper towels or scrap cloth around as when the pen doesn't want to start easiy, it is far easier to just hold the pen tip down on the towel till I see ink at the tip. usually it's only a few seconds till the ink starts to flow better and the cross and sheaffer pens all start pretty well then. I've not needed that trick for the Parker yet.

What irks me the most about fountain pens, is that most of them hate being just laid down or held for more than few seconds or the tips dry and writing is hard to start again.

so far, this Parker Cisele seems very forgiving in that respect, but I haven't figured out just how long I can let it sit. A few minutes is not a problem for it so far. Next I'll try a longer stretch as if I've been distracted when I thought I'd just be a few seconds (like a phone call that morphs into a long session).

Dear Amazon Shopper,

Confessedly, I have little in the way of new information to contribute with regard to this pen. I can, however, confirm that the other favorable reviews have this one pretty much nailed down. The pen has an understated elegance that feels right at home in a professional setting; I recently received a compliment on it from opposing counsel at a deposition. I agree with one of the other reviewers that the pen could stand to be ten or so grams heavier, but regardless it's comfortable in the hand and well-balanced (I have only used it posted). The cartridges are relatively inexpensive and easy to install. The pen writes very smoothly once it gets going, though it does indeed skip initially after long periods at rest. The fine materials and diligent craftsmanship set this product handily above the ordinary fountain pen while still being understated enough for semi-regular use, making it a solid choice for the working professional. My only advice would be to wait for a dip in the price if you're not in dire need of a fountain pen. While it's probably worth full markup, this pen can be had for upwards of a 30% discount if you snag it at the right moment, at which time you would be doing yourself a disservice to pass up this fine writing implement.

Final Verdict: Form, function, and affordability coalesce to produce a fine calligraphic instrument.
