    I do a hell of a lot of writing, and my current fountain pen (a LAMY AL-Star) is completely knackered. I'm currently trying to decide whether to just buy the same pen again, or buy one of these:

    Anyone ever used one? This is the first I've ever heard of this brand :/


    Many thanks!

    Never heard of that brand so I'm of no use there but I've been using a Cross fountain pen for two years and it's still working beautifully!
    I take 3 essay based A levels plus used to write music reviews as a job and regularly write letters so I would say I was a heavy duty user.

    I used Parker pens for a while but the nibs split quite often for me or wore down quickly so I'd definitely invest in another Cross, hope this helps

    Yes, it's "just a pen", but when your writing as much as I do it makes a hell of a lot of difference to have a decent one. I wouldn't expect you to understand though, you don't sound of the studious type...
