Not the best Staedtler pen

Comments about Staedtler Calligraphy Pen Set, Fine/Broad Nib, Marble Assorted:

Being that Staedtler offers many varieties of fountain pens on the market, I'm surprised that this was the only kind Staples decied to carry. Since this was my first fountain pen set I'm willing to give it some leeway.

The ink cartridges that came with the set were half the standard size, so you're not likely to get more than a few sessions out of each. I'm not sure if the ink formula is to blame, but it dried up very quickly. The ink certainly didn't have the fluidity of other ink refills. I had to shake the pen violently and squeeze the cartridge itself a few times to get the ink flowing again (I do store the pen right side up, so that wasn't the issue). I'm sure if I purchased a different brand of fountain pen ink cartridge refills my experience would be different.

Another problem I encountered happened just after a few days of use, when I tried to screw the feed/section back into the barrel, the mouth of the barrel actually cracked. This caused the feed/section to fall out of the barrel with each use. I eventually had to run Krazy Glue down the crack to fix it, but the crack is still visible and not very nice to look at. This is just disappointing evidence of the low quality of material used for the making of the barrel.

The only "pro" I can think of is the calligraphy instructions that came with it. I found it useful at least.

Overall, I would not recommend this fountain pen, but if Staples did offer another from Staedtler, I would certainly give it a try. I'm still a fan of Staedtler's other pens and mechanical pencils!
