I purchased the pen to improve my writing - using a fountain pen can be a great way to achieve this. With this aim in mind I would definitely recommend the product.

Positives:

- Feels nice to write with (very smooth, no scratching)
- Produces nice letters - has improved the look of my writing
- Smooth feeling means you can write for long periods with this pen no problem!

Negatives:
- INK!! It tears through ink like there's no tomorrow! I would suggest purchasing a piston cartridge and using ink bottles...

Overall a good choice for someone with a modest budget, who simply wants a small improvement in their handwriting and a nice pen to write with.

Good buy.

This is a vary nice pen to write with. A little thicker that what I expected but at the same time deceivingly light. Writes vary smoothly. I purchased the Converter Pull System Functional Piston Fill and Parker Quink Ink Bottle Black Ref S0170650 to go with it. the piston refill is vary easy to use and the ink is of a good quality.

At half-price it was well worth the money spent.

Being old school I love Fountain Pens, and will only ever write with one, This pen is beautiful, it is well balanced in your hand, feels great to the touch and the action and fluid movement on the paper is second to none. The nib feels like silk on the paper.
A fantastic pen, you can not go wrong with this one.

This fountain pen has a good weight and is well-bananced while writing. The ink flow is even but a little on the heavy side, and the pen does have a tendency to propel ink if any sudden movements are made. It looks attractive and hasn't leaked in my pocket, in or out of the included (polyester?) zip-case. Both the pen and case were nicer than I expected from the photos.

The nib is surprisingly weak. Recently the pen rolled off of a 3ft high table onto carpet with no lid on, and the nib was bent at 90 degrees at the tip. Needle-nose pliers restored some function, and I can hardly complain at the price - but I'd be leaning toward three stars at the RRP. I'm making a point of the weak nib because Parker's website claims that the frontier's nib is "famously hard-wearing"...

Overall, worth it.

Iwas getting depressed with the deteriortion of my handwriting with ball point pens, and hoped that going back to proper fountain pen would help. It did.I was afraid that, as with a few pens in the past, I would get messy with inky fingers. No problem.

Pen characteristics
For only around £12, it is a pretty smooth pen and is pleasant enough to write with. It has a nice weight to it, not too heavy and not too light so won't give you hand cramps after long writing sessions. It is, however, a very dry pen. You won't get much shading with this pen especially with the standard Parker Quink cartridges that come with it. The Parker inks themselves aren't exactly fantastic either - they get the job done well enough but are fairly bland. The blacks aren't very black and the blues look very washed out and don't stand out. I would also not recommend trying to convert this pen to an eyedropper pen, since the barrel is made entirely out of steel and ink will rot the inside of the barrel.

Nib properties
The nib is a nice medium, suitable for those who have both small and large handwriting. You will not get much flex with this nib - if any at all. Press too hard and you will bend the tines of your nib and be forced to re-align then with some tweezers or a spanner - so don't try. I learned this the hard way but managed to fix it.

Cleaning
The nib and feed are easily removable by holding the nib and feed in a cloth or something soft while gently twisting and pulling on the grip section which eventually comes off. The nib clicks onto the feed with little tabs on either side of the nib which keeps it in line with the feed. It can be easily taken away from the feed to clean and then snapped back into place. Very easy pen to clean.

Overall
It is definitely a good starter fountain pen though, a gentle introduction into the world of fountain pens and certainly pushes you towards buying a converter and trying out bottled ink. Very happy with this pen considering it was less than £15.
