Found this in a stash of vintage pens in my basement. It's not vintage by any means, but it was there somehow, so I decided to do a review of it. I've never used a Hero before, but I must say, I am in love with the nib after extended use of the pen. It's solidly built and despite the fact that I was unable to compare line widths, I really enjoyed the F/EF nib that it came with. Highly recommended.

As always, comments welcomed and appreciated!

Nice review, thanks! Inexpensive pens can be great. I know I really enjoy my simple, inexpensive Pilot 78Gs.

Niiice. I need to add this blog to my list. And count me in as another fan of un-costly pens.

First of all, Thanks for the comments. Second of all, based on your avatar and your blog title, I think I have found another avid fan of RUROUNI KENSHIN!!! I love the anime so much that I purchased the entire series on DVD. It's fantastic in every possible way. Nice to meet another fan!

I have the series up to the Kyoto arc. Hmm, was there a fountain pen in any of the scenes?

I actually have never looked for a fountain pen, but for some reason, I think there must have been at some point in the show, with all the diplomatic missions and such that Kenshin goes on. I guess I have a good excuse to watch everything again!
