I received my M19 with a Masuyama Broad Stub a few weeks ago. There were some skipping issues and was advised by F-C to give it a wash which I did and it's adorable now, as are the other F-C pens I have. The pen is of an ideal size and with faultless ergonomics.
Some four days ago, I risked converting it to an ED and thus far, it's held without leaks or any other snafu
A great feature of a purchase from F-C is that they FedEx it to you. I've always tracked the direct Memphis-Dubai flight too
Sorry i have been away for a while.
This is my daily writing pen since my purchase...
This is an awesome pen! I have this pen in the "Pendleton Special edition" with the green bands. The size, shape and weight of this pen is just about perfect!
I love the size and its light weight..
Great review! I got the link for the FC website from a post here on FPN, and have been hooked ever since.
I have the 19 with gold bands, a 25 Eclipse with smoke bands and a Smoke and Ice 02 Intrinsic, all with broad steel nibs. The quality and writing experience of these pens are excellent, as well as the prompt free international shipping.
Enjoy your 19!
Thank you perfaddict..
I admire your number of fc pens. So far i am enjoying my 19 so much i haven't looked into getting another pen...
thw, thank you for this fantastic review. I saw this pen at the Ohio Pen Show, almost bought one, but didn't, wanted to investigate further. Your review has helped tremendously. I'm understanding from what you say you're pleased with the cherry ice bands and that they don't stick out and steal attention from the over all lines of this great looking pen. Like you said, the pics on their website look kind of loud to me too,but I really like the way yours looks. I also appreciate your through critique of the nib. I like cursive italic nibs, I don't have one from Masuyama though. You did a good job with your review, well written! Thank you.
You are most welcome...
