This review is from: Pilot Parallel Pen 2-Color Calligraphy Pen Set, with Red and Blue Ink Cartridges, 1.5mm Nib (90050) (Office Product) For real writers, those of us who not only learned to type in required typing classes, but also slaved away at the Palmer Method in third grade and who LOVE cursive script. This is easily the biggest addition to my “INK PEN” addiction since I discovered cartridges in 6th grade long ago in Evanston, Illinois. If you are still enjoying the feel of the pen in hand, love colors or very vivid ink selections, or are even a serious calligrapher…..run for the 1.5MM and I promise you will end up with more than one. Mine have never leaked, dried up, scratched the paper (am I bringing back memories?) or delivered a puddle of ink when I least expected it. This package comes with everything you need to get going except black ink which comes 6 to a box. Order lots of these.Write on PILOT PEN.

This review is from: Pilot Parallel Pen 2-Color Calligraphy Pen Set, with Red and Blue Ink Cartridges, 3.8mm Nib (90052) (Office Product) Pilot provides consumers with a delightful series of calligraphy pens with the Parallel pens. All of the pens in the series have a wonderful shape, weight, and balance in the hand, and write wonderfully with no scratchiness and perfect ink flow. The pen also comes packed with goodies, which look like even more of gift when you consider the low price and the quality and reliability of these products. This 3.8 mm size version puts down a very hearty line that’s too large for everyday use, but there are other sizes in the series. They’re relatively inexpensive compared with other calligraphy pens and are far superior to any other calligraphy pens I’ve tried (and trust me – I’ve tried a lot). I’d even pick the Parallel line over Pelikan’s (another legendary fountain pen brand which is my favorite pen brand overall) Script series, which are also calligraphy pens, but don’t have the advantage of the double plate nib that the Parallels have. The single drawback – one that is a result of the design of calligraphy pens with this shape – is that the cap cannot be posted on the end of the pen when you take it off to write. Summary: If you’re looking for high quality, low price, and trouble free calligraphy pens that will last, do yourself a favor and pick up some of the Pilot Parallel Pens. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 42 of 44 people found the following review helpful sweet pen, September 15, 2010 By azuki – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Pilot Parallel Pen 2-Color Calligraphy Pen Set, with Red and Blue Ink Cartridges, 2.4mm Nib (90051) (Office Product) I practice calligraphy as a hobby, and I’ve had many different types of pen. This is the easiest one to use, right out of the package, after simple assembling (with instruction included in the package), the pen is ready to produce beautiful writing. Unlike other pens I bought before, this one doesn’t need to be ‘worked up’, it doesn’t have that scratchy feeling on the paper. I am loving this pen so much, I only bought the 2.4mm one, but I am going to buy the other two sizes too, wish they would sell them in a package.And a bonus magic is that this pen writes in two width, a flat way and a side way, it’s hard to explain, but get this pen and you will find out!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
