5 / 5 Marc N. There's good reason nearly every course on calligraphy urges students to get and use these pens I've been studying calligraphy as a hobby for a few years now, and have happily collected multiples of each of the Parallel pens. It's true that going with a Mitchell round hand dip nib, you get tines that flex that will let you modulate your line width on down strokes. It's also true virtually any decent broad edge dip nib will give you razor thin cross strokes -- though to be fair, Parallel pens are pretty darn good in that regard too. That said, the name of the game in studying calligraphy is routine daily practice, multiple sessions per day if you can, then rinse and repeat. And honestly, there's nothing more convenient that having these pens inked up (you can even eyedropper fill them! What's not to love about that!?) and ready to go at a moment's notice. The ink flow is great. Performance is great. Price is amazing considering what a workhorse these pens are. Highly recommended, without the slightest reservation. (Bank on getting them all, it's going to happen, and you'll be happy you did if you're serious about advancing your calligraphy skills.) Was this review helpful?

5 / 5 Cisco Sinatra Very satisfied customer! I had ordered this pen with high expectations. The quality of the pen was immaculate! I was very impressed with the ease of use along side being able to clean and load my pilot. I have created super cool works that I am very proud of. So thanks again for providing such a great product. Now I have to reorder more cartridges lol Was this review helpful? Yes No 0 of 0 users found this review helpful. Tweet
