FC Ambition Fountain Pen
Pen writes beautifully with the cartridge that it is provided with. The nib is very smooth, not scratchy, and it flows very nicely. The weight of the pen while writing without the cap on it is very balanced.
My one complaint is that when utilizing Levenger raven black ink in a levenger converter, it dries out very quickly. If not used for a couple of minutes, it will take a half a centimeter to get it to flow again, and after leaving it overnight, I have to clean out the entire nib, making it a major inconvenience to utilize on a daily basis. Note that it does not matter how it is stored, it does it no matter if the cap is up, down, or sideways. This was not an issue with the cartridge that was provided.

Good Place to Start
This is my first fountain pen and I wasn't sure what I wanted to start out with. This pen has a nice balanced weight and a slim design. I wanted the wood barrel, but it was significantly higher in price. The resin has a nice texture and it's easy to hold. If the cartridges are easy and clean to replace I think it will be a really good pen to start out with.
