I am very pleasantly surprised! It was able to write beautifully right out of the box! The nib is a medium and in reverse it’s a fine. I wasn’t sure how much I was going to get in reverse but it handled. A very pleasant writer and I am very confident it will be able to hold up against my daily use.
My one complaint is it is on the smaller side also being a little lighter ( but this isn’t a really a serious complaint ) but between my Lamy, FWP carousel, and TSWBI eco it has the better of the posting so it becomes very comfortable in my giant ham.
I highly recommend it the dark green reminds me of a forest green!
Quite simply love at first write!
Completely recommend. Of course Galen leather was a real pleasure to work with answering my questions and shipping was relatively quick. With the extra goodies they send along with it makes it such joy to open.
-Small unposted (again just nitpicking)
-Only comes in medium (writes in F in reverse, and I prefer pens in medium anyway. Just thinking of others)
Will most likely buy another in a other colour.
I bought this pen after some reflection and seeing the reviews. I did a leap pf faith and bought it 2 in a row.
I'm super satisfied with the product.
Its smooth, fits perfectly the hand, and the writing... That is something special :)
Doesn't leave any smudge. At all!!
Congratulations for the product!
I have been really happy with this pen. It’s quite small, almost identical in size and weight to the Pelikan M200. It has been a really smooth writer straight out of the box. I sketch as much as write with my fountain pens and this one is great for that. Being a piston filler, it holds a good amount of ink for a small pen.
I think the gold against the dark red looks lovely too.
I would recommend this pen for your collection or as a first fountain pen.
I really love the color of this pen, it has a nice vintage look. The pen is on the smaller size, and it is also very light weight. The inside piston part is white so I imagine that after some time it will become stained with ink, but it doesn't bother me. works lovely!
Awesome little, great pen! It was a really nice surprise. I bought it in burgundy and it was love at first sight. The pen is light, well balanced and fits well in my hand. I use it with posted cap, but I find no trouble also without posting the cap. The piston works greatly, too. The nib writes very, very smoothly. And what say about the packaging? Simply fantastic! Last but not least the service: excellent communication, tracking and even a little gift! 😊
The Scrikss 419 Fountain Pen in black has a classic look, is light, comfortable to write with for long periods, and as a piston filler it holds a lot of ink. Its medium nib writes smoothly and lays down a nice wet line. I love mine.
I currently have it inked with diamine earl grey. Here are my initial thoughts: it is a small pen, in between a mini and a regular pen, it is super light, the color is beautiful and the golden accent is nice, it is a vaccum fill, but the twist is clicky which not sure if I like yet.
Writing: it is a smooth writer, ink flows very well, short nib with a touch of flex. The writing offers a very satisfying feedback for me, and the bit of flex looks nice in my opinion.
Overall: I love the look and feel of the pen, it's reminiscent of pens I had as a kid when fountain pens were widely used, the nib is where it is a fairly good quality. It gives a satisfying write for how light it is.
Ich konnte ihn zwar noch nicht testen, da ich mir erst ein Tintenfaß besorgen muss. Aber ich bin jetzt schon ganz verliebt in die Farbe und goldene Feder.
I love the look and feel of this pen. The mint green is very pretty, especially with the gold accents. The medium nib is really more of a broad, but it writes beautifully. The piston fill works smoothly. As always, Galen Leather packaging is great, with all the nice extras. I did get a call from US Customs, asking whether ink was included - weird - but no problems. Overall, a great value for the price.
