My typed review will include the entirety of my handwritten one.
OMG! It's a Hello Kitty fountain pen! I picked it up at a local store.
Appearance & Design:
It is a Hello Kitty fountain pen! Beyond that, it is pretty cheap plastic, the sort you expect on a disposable rollerball. I strongly prefer the way the blue ink pen looks, but there is also a black ink pen (not pictured).
Construction & Quality:
This is a disposable fountain pen.
Weight & Dimension: This pen is thin and light. Also, it posts.
Nib & Performance:
This is a cheap nib. It is rolled, not iridium tipped. It doesn't write poorly, although I think this nib is not very pretty. It is very firm, and a tad scratchy. It writes fairly finely although no sizes are marked.
Filling System & Maintenance:
This is disposable. I will try to pull out the nib and feed and try to refill it when it runs out, but that won't be for a while.
Cost & Value:
It was $5. So was my Hero M616, which is much nicer to use. This pen is worth it for the lols, not the writing experience, which is mostly reminiscent of a decent $1 rollerball. Also, I can refill my Hero.
I got to bounce around the dorm showing off my Hello Kitty fountain pen, which was great. I would suggest this pen for anyone who is overly fond of Hello Kitty. It does write fine, and it doesn't dry out when not used. I don't like the disposable nature or the non-waterproof ink that it uses. It makes a great gift for Hello Kitty fans, and a superb backup pen because it really never dries out. Also, it comes in fine, unlike a Varsity, which also are disposables that don't dry out. Thus far, I've been keeping it around as a backup, and it has come in handy.
I hope you enjoyed my review!
(Also, if you desperately want one of these, I can easily get more, as long as that store carries them, so talk to me. I've not seen them online).
