Hello everyone, I just had to share how I feel about this pen. ------------- Disclaimer: I'm by no means an expert or connoisseur in fountain pens. My knowledge and experience with them have been quite limited.I don't have much idea on how to write a pen review properly. It may lack many parts, may even be a complete nonsense.I'm not so strong in writing in English, at times I may not be able to express myself well enough.------------- Sailor HighAce Neo Fountain Pen, Blue, Fine. I love this pen. I love how light it feels in the hand, how easy it is to manipulate it. It is not tiring to write with it at all. I like how its nib has some sort of pressure on the paper which feels firm but smooth, not scratchy. I like the little heart shaped hole on the nib. I personally like that it does not have indentations for placing fingers on the grip section, as I like to reverse write or even oblique write (is this even a thing?) quite often. Also, I believe the bottom end of the barrel is designed specifically to be able to post very securely, which is something I'd never seen before. It may be an extremely affordable pen, a beginner pen, a student pen. All those kinda apply to me anyways. Among my steel nib pens (Lamy Safari, Faber Castell OpArt, Pelikan Pelikano Up, Kaweco Perkeo, Pilot Metropolitan), This one is hands down my favourite. Thanks for reading!
enzio posted a topic in Japan - AsiaHi! I've narrowed down my next pen choice to these two pens: the Plaisir and the HighAce Neo. Both are avaible locally in a mom-and-pop store. The Plaisir is $11 (right now there's a sale, and it's only $8.5), the HighAce is $13. I've only tried the HighAce, and I quite like it. I only have a Preppy. I'm a student, I write a lot, have very small hands, and I would like to use cartridges. I find the HighAce Neo's slimness good (before the Preppy I used a Parker Jotter as my pen), but the Preppy's is also good. Which one would you recommend?
