  1. Maybe it's not, but it must be bloody close. It goes for AUD$9.95 including delivery, two cartridges and a converter. How good is that? It's light, it's plastic, it's black and gold and it's wet wet wet; all things that make me happy. It has a Safari inspired cut-out ink window, a slip-on cap that makes a delightful 'plop' sound when it comes off and a very useable, fairly stylish pocket clip (old mate Pierre knows what he's doing). The nib feel is eerily similar to the Safari, but the grip is uncompromised by finger guides. It has discreet little ridges that gently caress your fingertips as your grip shifts while writing, it actually feels nice, not just neutral. Of course I didn't flush it out before use, just dived straight in. I know a lot of people consider that to be quite rash, but in my humble opinion, if a consumer grade pen like this can't come straight out of it's packaging and write with the included cartridge within a few seconds then it's really missed the mark. (I didn't use the included cartridge, but you know what I mean) ....Dare I say it..... ...I'm sweating and looking over my shoulder.... OK! My first impression is that it's better than my Safari. Whew. I'm ducking for cover, bring it on!
