Dani $27.00 Pen
Posted 23 May 2006 - 19:50
For $27.00 this is one amazing fountain pen. Until you pick it up and realize the additional weight, you would swear it is a black Urushi Ebonite with a silver clip.
The black color has an amazing depth and gloss.
To add to the value is a spring loaded clip that goes over the cap and is well formed.
The cap threads appear to be a plastic material that will not hurt the finish when posted. AND, despite being made of lacquer over metal, the posted pen balances nicely and does not feel excessively heavy.
The step from the barrel to the section is not excessive, making holding the pen is a writing postion comfortable.
The section is silver and the nib appears to be rhodium plated. It has tasteful engraving and is marked Iridium Tipped Germany and an M. The feed is a nice generous size (marked 3) that should give good ink flow.
Considering the color, there was only one ink that I could put in this pen, Pelikan Brilliant Black. The pen is C/C filler and comes with a nicely fitting convertor and an ink cart. The convertor fills to capacity and works smoothly.
I grabbed a Rhodia 5x5 pad and the nib floated over the paper and left a nice wet medium line. Virtually no pressure on my part, which is good for me, since I have a very light hand. I let the pen sit for about 3 hours, uncapped it and it laid down a nice line from the first touch. I can't ask for more than that from pens costing 10X what this one did.
Appearance and Finish ~ 20/20
Design/Size/Weight ~ 17/20
Nib Design and Performance ~ 20/20
Filling System ~ 15/20
Final Score ~ 92/100
Overall Opinion/Conclusion ~ You are not going to find a nicer pen in this price range. This is an ideal pen when you are just looking for something to just throw in your pocket. It will still look classy and will perform as needed. This is also a perfect gift pen for anyone, especially someone just starting out. The appearance and the great gift box make it look like it is a lot more expensive than it really is. Who ever you give one too will think you spent a bundle.

Now that the reviews are coming in, I'm starting to regret my choice not to buy one
Oh well, I'll just have to put the $27 toward some other shiny Danitrio pen...

The pen is also so substantial! I prefer it unposted. Love the little flair by the nib (grey metallic model). Just a great bargain if you ask me.
