I have to admit to being a pen junkie. I've got a number of good fountain pens, and have always liked Parker products. The Parker Duofold remains my favorite fountain pen. I looked forward to trying this because it seemed to combine fountain pen like writing with no-leak and no-need-to cap-quickly convenience. The pen has some positives. It's nice looking, seems well made, is nicely balanced. However, the writing is NOT fountain-pen like. It is much more like writing with a Sharpie and has the feel of porous point device. In a fountain pen, one can see a difference between the thickness of strokes, as in a script lower case f or g--lines are thicker where you go around the bottom of the loop and thinner on the upstroke, which gives the writing a nice look. I can't get that effect here. I directly compared this pen with an ultra-fine Sharpie. I'm quite convinced I could not tell the difference with a blindfold. The refill is configured to look like a fountain pen and it does have some flex to it. According to the Parker website the refill 'interacts' with the fountain-pen like 'hood.' I am unconvinced this really happens. So, I wound up paying 160 bucks for a good looking Sharpie. Maybe the dress up is worth it for you, I'm feeling buyer's regret.

Parker's PR people did a lousy job communicating what's special about this pen, which is apparent when you read many of these reviews. People are shocked when they realize that it's not a fountain pen (it's not advertised as a fountain pen) and feel gypped when they find out that it's "only" a felt-tip. When I bought it, even the pen salesman (in a high-quality pen store) remarked to me that he didn't understand why Parker put a "fake fountain pen tip" on a felt-tip pen. But I've worked with this pen for several weeks and can share some answers.

1) Yes, this is a felt-tip and not a fountain pen. It appears to use a high-quality cartridge that does not dry out when the cap is left off and that does not push in when you press down hard, both failings of cheaper felt-tips.

2) The "fake metal fountain pen point" is there for a reason. When you write with it, that metal hood forces you to always orient the same side of the felt-tip toward the paper. This is what enables the pen to learn (in other words, wear down to) your preferred writing angle, which customizes the stroke. When you first start to write, the tip feels scratchy, but within a few sentences that personalized wear angle sets in and the pen becomes exceptionally smooth--sort of the "Blackwing" of felt-tips.

3) Because the tip develops a flat-spot personalized to your handwriting, it quickly takes on an oval shape. This is reflected on the paper as variation between thick and thin in your pen strokes. As a result, your penmanship is more expressive than with a rollerball or standard felt-tip (but less expressive than with a fountain pen). This is more noticeable with the medium than with the fine point.

So what you get is a felt-tip pen that is smoother, longer-lasting, and more expressive to write with than its predecessors. It's not a fake fountain pen. It's a terrific felt-tip that's a pleasure to write with.

Let's dispense with the controversy first. This is not a fountain pen. It is more of a classic a felt tip pen with a very nice looking body. So why buy this pen? Buy it BECAUSE it is not a fountain pen. Like many people looking at this pen, I am a bit of a pen geek. I use a bottle filled classic fountain pen with a gold nib that has nicely adapted to my writing style. I also deal with splotches, smears, times when the ink doesn't flow well, etc. --- all of which come with a fountain pen. Also, I don't travel with a fountain pen, since I don't ever remember to empty it first.

That's where this pen comes in. It's a sealed refill that works fine in planes. It doesn't smear, and the ink doesn't suddenly stop. It also writes exceptionally smoothly coming out of the box. In other words, it's sort of that perfect every day pen you can use when you are not writing leisurely (which is most of the time for me).

The biggest knock on this pen is that they put a fake nib on it, behind which the ink flows. I actually think this is fine. It looks mostly like a fountain pen, but it doesn't have all the hassles. You can decided whether this is worth using a a "poser" pen. For most people, I think it's perfect, as most people would never care to use a fountain pen.

Bottom line: very smooth, easy to use, carry, and travel with every day pen.

I recently received one of these as a gift, and being the sort of person who doesn't like to toss away or sell gifts I have it sitting in it's presentation box on my desk.

As the other reviewer stated, this *IS NOT* a fountain pen by any stretch of the imagination. It's some sort of "porous" tip that writes sort of like a fine point sharpie, except it's much less comfortable in my hand than a sharpie would be.

If you'd like an excellent fountain pen at a low price (low being a relative term, fountain pens have a sweet spot in the $150-$250 range, and another in the $2000-$2500 range) I would recommend the following, which I own currently, or have owned in the past.

If you'd like a Parker simply because you like the brand and the feel of their pens in your hand, the model 75 is quite nice, I've owned mine for a fair while and I enjoy writing with it.

My preference would be a pen by Pelikan - their model m250 can be had for around $125 if you search a bit, and their m400, which is essentially upgraded in every way can be had for $150-$160, though finding one at the prices I listed could take a fair bit of looking, perhaps purchasing a display model from a fine writing instrument shop or you could find one very gently used on either eBay or Amazon marketplace.

Another fountain pen of note, which I respect a lot, is the Waterford Kilbarry. I personally still use mine a great deal, it ran around $120 when I bought it a few years back, and it's still in rotation with my Deltas, Montblancs and Nakayas. A $120 pen standing up to very high end offerings at fifteen to twenty times it's price is highly impressive to me, and if you decide to begin a collection of pens the Waterford is something you can carry without worry and it looks like a pen priced in the $800-$1000 range.

Best of luck in finding what you're looking for, I hope this review helps you to find a pen that will make you genuinely happy.
