Sailor Highace Neo Fountain Pen Review

Hello everyone,

 

I just had to share how I feel about this pen.

 

-------------

Disclaimer:

  • I'm by no means an expert or connoisseur in fountain pens. My knowledge and experience with them have been quite limited.
  • I don't have much idea on how to write a pen review properly. It may lack many parts, may even be a complete nonsense.
  • I'm not so strong in writing in English, at times I may not be able to express myself well enough.

Sailor HighAce Neo Fountain Pen, Blue, Fine.

 

I love this pen. I love how light it feels in the hand, how easy it is to manipulate it. It is not tiring to write with it at all. I like how its nib has some sort of pressure on the paper which feels firm but smooth, not scratchy. I like the little heart shaped hole on the nib. I personally like that it does not have indentations for placing fingers on the grip section, as I like to reverse write or even oblique write (is this even a thing?) quite often. Also, I believe the bottom end of the barrel is designed specifically to be able to post very securely, which is something I'd never seen before.

 

It may be an extremely affordable pen, a beginner pen, a student pen. All those kinda apply to me anyways.

 

Among my steel nib pens (Lamy Safari, Faber Castell OpArt, Pelikan Pelikano Up, Kaweco Perkeo, Pilot Metropolitan), This one is hands down my favourite.

 

Thanks for reading!

The nib looks interesting. Might give it a try if the chance arises. What does the nib feel like? Is it super smooth or a bit feedback-y? (I prefer the latter) I threw away a Jinhao which was perfectly fine because I couldn't stand how glassy smooth the nib was. It sounds ridiculous but it's true. I think getting the grind right is really important although this element gets often overlooked.

I absolutely agree, everyone has their own preferences and priorities :)

The nib definitely has feedback, but it's not scratchy. The pen is very light, but the nib holds onto the paper nicely, yet it does not scratch it. I feel like even I were to press onto the paper the nib wouldn't harm the paper (I don't go far and do crazy things). It's difficult to convey how I feel with this pen, perhaps because I'm aggrandizing it unintentionally
