    Not bad for a $5 fountain pen!

    I'll try it out once I've run another pen or two out of ink.
    For the last 5 years or so, Iíve said Iím gonna pick up a zebra the next time Iím at a Walgreens and I never do. How is yours writing?

    It was awful, unfortunately. One of the worst pens I've encountered.

    I did a review on it in the pen review section. Apparently I am not alone in my experience.

    Far better pens can be found in the sub $10 category.

    I had one of those. It may have been the only fountain pen that I actually threw away. I would not even have given it away to a beginner needing a cheap first fountain pen, as it would have given them the wrong idea about fountain pens in general.

    I pitched mine too. I've only done that with 2 or 3 cheap pens. Ugh.
