When my friends get ordained, I give this pen as a gift. It is meaningful with good looking, and smooth to write.
Wry nice pen but included converters do not fit on pen. They are too long.
This is my second purchase from Allegory. I bought "The Cap" rollerball a number of years ago and I really love it. Also, I really appreciate their customer service; they stand by their work and are a good company.
"The Cap" fountain pen is very nice. It writes very will, with a medium-fine stroke and no bleeding or excess ink. The magnetic cap is very satisfying to click on top or post on the back. And the wood is both beautiful and provides nice feel. I find the pen slightly unbalanced when the cap is not posted, but that isn't an issue for me as I always keep the cap attached. One word of warning. The internal 'guide tube' where the ink cartridge is held is very narrow. It will fit true international standard cartridges (as they say) but there are many brands out there that sell "international standard" carts that are too wide for this pen. I made the mistake of trying to use one only to find ink all over my hands. This was my fault, not allegory's, but be advised anyway.
I give this "only" four stars because I have other fountain pens I like more; but they were much more expensive. This pen punches far above its weight and cannot be beat for price.
I have customized versions of this pen in fountain and rollerball. The magnetic click is very satifying when placing the cap. Both pens write great and Allegory was easy to work with on creating these for me. Worth every penny. I also purchased one as a gift.
High quality pen made with gorgeous wood. I bought one for myself and several people in my office as Christmas gifts. Everyone loved them and uses them daily.
