soniknitr posted a topic in Fountain Pen ReviewsAfter a long & strong fight with the penavarice-devil , I finally gave in and bought a GvFC Intuition.

How much would I expect to pay if I can find one? Thank you, Paul Julian

PRELUDE What would be the one Sailor pen within my budget, which I could keep even if I would let go of all the other Sailors? Having not quite a smooth experience with a few Sailor nibs, I decided upon the exciting & costlier option of a Nagahara tuned speciality nib, instead of taking another pen with the stock 14k or 21k nib. Below is a link to the review on my blog: Sailor Pro Gear with Naginata Togi Nib Review My last Sailor was a Pro Gear Sigma Slim which is reviewed here. However, for these speciality nibs, you can have a long waiting period of not less th
