This beautiful pen feels great in the hand; the weight is just right and the grip is fantastic. Overall, amazing craftsmanship. The pictures on the website made the wood look darker but mine is a little lighter, and honestly it looks better with the brass in my opinion. If I had one knock, I wish the pusher and the clip were also brass, it just looks a little funny with two tones of metal. When the pen arrived, the ink would not flow from the cartridge. I contacted Allegory and Jessica offered to send a replacement right away, fantastic customer service even though I declined. It has since been resolved with heating the end up and for upwards of a minute of scribbling to get the ink to flow, guessing the ink solidified at the tip.
I received my pen in very quick response to ordering it and found it to be designed very well. I have big hands to begin with and it fits very well in my hand and weight wise very excellent. I love this pen.
This pen has already been purchased 4 tines to be presented as gifts to my crew and engineers at special moments The appreciation and reaction from each recipient is something great to see. It has special meaning since our work is Mechanical Maintenance for the Railroad.
The Wanderer is another showcase of craftsmanship and quality. For me, it's the story that elevates this to a showpiece. Carrying a piece of history to my work makes this pen something I treasure. When my pen arrived with a misprint of my monogram, the Allegory Goods team addressed the concern quickly and fully. I am, once again, so impressed by this product and the team behind it.
I backed this on Kickstarter for my Dad as a Christmas present. He's a railway engineer and was thrilled with this meaningful gift. It's great quality and he uses it all the time. Thank you.
