Ambition Fountain Pen Pearwood
Very nice pen
This was my first fountain pen purchase and it was an excellent choice. It is very lightweight and comfortable to hold. It writes more smoothly than I could have ever imagined. I was drawn to the aesthetics of the pen. The wood on the pen does feel a little rough at first, but it quickly becomes smoother and richer in color just from the small amount of natural oils on your hands. My only two complaints, which are small, are that I would have preferred the cap to screw on rather than snap on, and that the packaging the pen came in seemed a little cheap. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with how well this pen writes and looks.

I tried the Waterford Celebration pen (two different ones thinking first was defective) then finally came to this one. It is nothing short of fantastic. I love the weighted feel in my hand, i think it is perfect with cap off, some might like a little more weight and leave the cap on back. I use a fine nib and it starts flawlessly every time. The wood feels wonderful in my hand and looks sharp and modern. It isn't as "fat" cigar width as many fountain pens and feels easier to write because of it.
