Recommended Posts

The Duke D2-2 is a pen that comes with two nib sections, one M and one fude, also included are converter and a two-pen-case.










Appearance & Design: 8/10

  • cigar shape
  • black with silver
  • plastic (shiny)
  • grip is matt and has rubbery feel to it

Construction & Quality: 7/10

  • big, heavy and solid
  • cap is really snug and needs some force to remove/place it
  • on one side it’s a chinese pen, so I don’t expect miracles from it, but on the other side it’s not like a Lamy Safari is that much more expensive and those are solid writers

Weight & Dimensions: 7/10

  • weighs 38 g with ink
  • length:13,8 cm
  • width: 1,3 cm in the middle
  • about the size of a Lamy Safari
  • suitable for people with larger hands

Nib & Performance: 2/10

  • comes with M nib and fude nib
  • M nib on the fine side
  • neither is scratchy
  • nibs are very big
  • M nib is very dry and doesn’t lay ANY ink on the paper if no pressure is applied


Filling System & Maintenance: 8/10

  • international cartridge/converter
  • converter is included
  • did not disassemble, so can’t say anything in regard to that

Cost & Value: 5/10

  • cost ~20$
  • 2 pens in 1
  • would be good value, if it weren’t for the dry M nib


Conclusion: 4/10


Somewhat a daily writer for me. Currently I use it as the second pen for taking notes. I have a two colour system, where I write the important/basic facts down with one colour (usually a darker blue) and use a second colour for short explanations or examples (usually a turquoise).

The pen looks and feels very nice, I especially like the rubbery grip section, it’s not rubber, but plastic, but it gives you a nice grip.

BUT: The pen is so dry that I have to apply pressure for the ink to flow and can only write a couple of sentences with it, which gives it overall a lower score.







Not a fan of the fude nib, for me stubs are the better choice.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
