It is a very pleasant fountain pen at a fairly reasonable price (I can buy them in the US direct from Japan for less than $18-$20)

It feels light and comfortable in the hand.

The ink flow while writing is very good.

The nib is stiff enough (for the medium nib) for writing checks

the pilot cartridge ink, though, is somewhat prone to feathering

Can you change the nib? And what fits?
