It's cute, but I'd like to see some more variety in acrylics on the M2 over that.

I have one but no snowflakes just plain.

 

It is a nice writer and of course, holds a lot of ink.

 

I do most of my writing with dip nibs but whenever I pick up the Moonman, it starts right away. Quite surprised by that as I even have a shimmer ink in it. I was recently away for a month and yet it still started straight away. I am considering getting a couple more of them because of the reliability and consistency.

I LOVE my M2 (rose gold), but this makes me wish I’d waited until the snowflake came out. I may have to get a second one! So CUTE!

I saw that version when I was trying to choose which eBay seller to buy a Moonman M2 from. The snowflake version is an attractive pen.

My Moonman M2 arrived today. Somehow I did not notice it came with a gift of a 1.1mm stub nib. I was so happy to see it, and have already swapped the F gold tone nib. My plan was to fill it with (new) Sheaffer Skrip Red. Has anyone used shimmering inks in a Moonman M2?

I went to eBay to take another look at Snowflake, and saw a C1 with reindeer, Trees, and snowflakes. Wow!

I'm just quoting from my response to the original post "Quite surprised by that as I even have a shimmer ink in it."  :D

I like the snowflake design, but not that it's otherwise just a demonstrator pen.  If they had done the snowflake design on a solid color pen, I'd maybe be tempted.

I did see you used a shimmer ink after I posted. Has your pen run out of ink yet? I’m curious how easy it is to clean.

This looks dumb to me. Winter/Christmas kitsch annoys me.

It has Diamine Lilac Satin in it. I have filled it 3 times already but not cleaned it. It still works perfectly although, to get the glitter/sheen I have to shake it a little every now and then. 

 

I have not found that it needs a clean yet so I couldn't tell you if it is easy or not, sorry.

 

I just enjoy the pen and with that ink in it looks great!

My M2 has an 18k waterman nib in it. It's a great pen in general. 

 

I don't love shimmer inks in eyedroppers though. They can hold so much ink that they can be prone to clogging.
