Senator Venecia


Price: ~35$ (1007 rubles)

Build: 4/5
Very heavy varnished metal, with attached cap hand geting tired very fast, it is too overweighted.

Comfort: 3/5
Pen is varnished, sometimes fingers sliding off it.

Nib: 1/5 (after fixing it 3/5)
From the beginning pen was very scratchy, skips and starts to write after me. It's disappointed me and I fogot about for a month or so. Attempts to find something about FP problems in russian part of internet were without and results, but in Google I easily found сlause "Smoothing scratchy nibs" and tried a method of polishing paper (Micromesh). Results were wonderful! Now my handwriting with it become much smoother, it starts to write almost without a problems and skips. But I think it's still a bit scratchy.

Thank you for the review of a pen new to me! It's great that you were able to persevere and improve the smoothness of the nib.

That's great how you discovered Micromesh to help you smooth your pen's nib! BRAVO!! biggrin.gif

Thank you also for the review. I've been here two years and I've only done one review, but you've done one on the same day you joined, so thanks again smile.gif

P.S.
Any idea what your second fountain pen purchase might be?

Kot,

I would like to thank for good review about Senator pen. I have two older Senators (Windsor and Regent) which I like and sure curious about modern fountain pen from that company. Besides it is a pleasure to see the review written in Russian.

Good luck in your pen journey.
