Carbon F Fountain Pen Medium
Love this pen
Excellent size, feel, and heft. Very comfortable to write with. I haven't had any problems with skipping, as has been reported previously. (I use bottled ink.) Medium nib has the perfect degree of flex. One minor complaint - doesn't look like the pix on the website. Best description is carbon fiber with a very heavy lacquer finish - so heavy it almost obscures the carbon fiber. Not unattractive, just not as pictured. Overall very happy with this pen.

I received the pen during the week did not have time to do anything I had contractors working at my house and it was quite hectic. When I was able to try out the pen same problem I had to scratch and scratch to get the pen to write. I could not believe it. And now I have even a bigger problem I dropped the pen it cracked around the rim I glued it with crazy glue you really can't see it but it is scratch scratch scratch to get it to write.

I received this pen as a gift from my husband since I was covering this modern looking pen . I immediately put the cartridge in and started to write. and nothing. So I flushed the pen and tried again. Nothing. Tried it with a converter and some nice bottled ink. Nothing.
Then the pen fell off my desk (well with feline assistance) and the pen broke. I crazy glued it together. It looks nice, but it still doesn't write unless I undo the pen to push down on the plunger to get the ink to flow. I own several fountain pens, waterman, lamy, namiki vanishing point, etc. I love fountain pens.I hate this pen.

I Would Have Given It A 5 But
I had given this pen a bad review a few days ago and I am surprised it was never published. This pen would not write period I would scratch and scratch to get this pen to write and when it did write it kept skipping. I finally figured what was wrong the reservoir was defective. I finally changed the reservoir and now it writes. I hope the company will be nice enough to send me a new reservoir.

A real piece of junk
If I don't use this pen for a half hour I have to constantly scribble with it to get it to write. I stop writing with it once again I have to scribble and scribble to get the ink flowing. I have a pen that cost less then $10.00 that writes all the time.

This is one of my favorite pens. The weight is hefty and circumference is perfect for writes notes in class. It rolled off my end table and the top broke where the black band goes around the bottom. I got a replacement. Same thing happened to the second one, break happened at the exact same point. We have tile floors. I now have a third because I really like the way it writes! If this one breaks, I won't be replacing it.

A Throw Back!
I love this pen for its style, smooth writing, and weight. This pen reminds me of the great pens from the 30's & 40's at a reasonable price.
I do not consider this a "luxury" pen, per se, but it is a great, solid investment for an everyday work pen, and looks like a much more expensive instrument!

Yes, when it’s made with carbon fiber, as our Carbon-F pen is. The smooth resin barrel has the heft you’d expect from this high-performance material, with the added punch of a streamlined clip and gunmetal trim.

The pen has good heft and balance.
I doubt if it is real carbon fiber, but it certainly looks good. THe pen has some platicized metal attachment point where the pen comes apart to refill the ink; I don't how durable it will be.
It writes well, fairly smooth and consistant.
I got it on sale for $66.00. Well worth it.
