The Recruit is a small pen, though when posted is slightly longer than my posted Cross Century Classic. The diameter of this slender pen is only about 1.5 mm greater than a Sheaffer Skrip cartridge. The pen is very light, which I like because light pens do not tire the hand as heavier pens do.
The Recruit slips very comfortably into the notch worn into the last bone of my long finger by years of FP use. I hold the pen high on the section and partly on the silver-colored ring between the section and barrel.
The nib (labeled Sailor F-55) produces a line similar in width to the Cross Solo F nib, but with wetter flow. Contact with paper is smooth.
The Sailor Recruit is often the pen I reach for for both quick notes and extended writing sessions. It would fit the pen loops on most journals and checkbooks. Those who like light, slender pens might consider this one.

A pen for the small and slender lovers. Not one that I enjoyed ( a brief test from at a shop). Thank you for the review.

All in all, I love the lines this pen delivers. It's just wet enough and the Nano ink is glorious. (I've been trying to get used to a Pilot Cavalier lately... The writing style between these two are like night and day!)
