They deserve the accolades
Without trying to sound like an addict, I have been a fountain pen user all my life. As a left-hander, I have been through all manner of makes, types and expenses, and have to say that these Stilform pens are worth every penny. The only reason that I haven't given a full five stars is because it's not as good as a Cartier broad nib I once used, but in all other respects these pens are a delight to write with (I prefer the finer nib, although would be keen to try a calligraphic if they were to ever offer one), certainly attract an envious look or two from those watching when I pull it out, and are well priced for titanium versions. The magnetic cap is a good touch, and although I bought the pen clip I decided to remove it as I wasn't confident it would hold the pen when clipped to my shirt and I were to give it a jolt like bounding down the steps. I also have the pen base holder and cartridge filler, both of which are flawless. All in all, I love the pen and have already bought 5 as gifts for friends who looked too keen to pilfer my pen the other day at a meeting. I am looking forward to future products from Stilform, they have set an excellent precedent.
