Kingsley Chequer Intro I bought this pen in London. A very nice looking pen. I didn't even know this brand exists till I bought it. The Packaging This pen comes in a gift box. I bought a set of a ballpoint and a fountain pen because I got it cheaper than a single fountain pen. The Body The variant I happened to choose was the gunmetal one. I like the body of this pen. Gunmetal color with engraved grid on the barrel. It looks perfect. Clip & Pocket Looks The clip is fairly hard but it looks nice in a shirt pocket. As to the finial, there's nothing but a reflective metal as you can see in the picture. The Cap Cap is snap fit. The sound of that snap is very loud and secured. Filling Mechanism This is a cartridge converter pen with standard international cartridges. The box comes with a cartridge but without a converter. Writing Experience This pen came with an iridium point medium nib. My experience with this pen was pathetic. As you can see in the image, it feathers a lot, almost on ask the papers I tried. I have tried fixing it but couldn't fix it to my satisfaction. Posting makes this pen a little top heavy but not too much. Cost I bought a set of this pen and a ball pen for £37.50 (₹3700 approx). Strange thing is, it was available as a single product for £49.99. There must have been some promotion at that time. Because as I still check the price while writing this review, it costs you £49.99 for the fountain pen and £25 for the ball pen.
