Axe7man posted a topic in Other Brands - EuropeHello wonderful people of FPN, I have a question concerning the Faber Castell Basic carbon fiber finish. I panic bought (never a good thing) one of these recently at a bargain price (couldn't resist) and I'm wondering what to expect. The pen itself looks to be in super condition, only dip tested by seller and has an extra fine nib and I was excited about receiving it. However, after some browsing research, I think it's fair to say I have found more negative reviews than positive. Mostly due to the section or barrel threads snapping easily (on the carbon fiber edition especially). This is disappointing considering Faber Castell claim to pride themselves on excellence. Although, alot of these reviews are 3+ years old, maybe it was to do with a defective older batch? I'm wondering if anyone has any recent experience with the same pen and if it was positive? I'm not too concerned, considering I really didn't pay much but should I be worried about receiving a pen that might break easily? Thanks all!
