This game is really good but on kindle fire it doesn't update quick enough so you don't have stuff which all your friends have but amazing game so do get it. Also some updates delete your progress. I would give 🔯🔯🔯🔯🔯 if it didn't do that. Great game though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful pen which writes reliably without from the word go, 3 May 2015

Beautiful pen which writes reliably without from the word go. Following the pre-requisite new fountain pen treatment of brief clean with liquid detergent and thorough rinse, there was no need for any nib tuning! The Schmidt Technology nib lays down a nice medium/fine not too dry or too wet line, and the feed permits the ink to flow beautifully so that it keeps up with rapid writing.

Visually this is a georgeous pen with a very elegant shape. It is so good I bought a second one soon after the first! Also because it was a very good price.

I just love the magnetic cap which posts magnetically too with a satisfying 'click'. I find the pen works equally well posted or not, however for me, the balance is better when posted and my writing is better as a result.

The only minor point was that the clip forms an air hole in the cap which allows the ink in the nib to concentrate and dry out. I would guess after about a fortnight sufficient ink may have dried on the nib to impede decent operation. However, a small blob of blue-tack inserted inside the cap sealed this perfectly, and now there is no drying out or ink colour difference even if the pen has not been used for a month. BTW many of my fountain pens (eg. Parker's 45, Slimfold, and Swan Mabie Todd's) do the same thing and a bit of bluetack works wonders there too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hopeless, cheap, junk., 3 May 2015
Total junk. My 11yr old had one for his Birthday. Having put the batteries in, it briefly flashed something on the LCD, made some noise, and then died completely.

Could not be made to work again. It is now in the bin.

3.0 out of 5 stars Magnifier is great, LEDs suck, 20 Jan. 2014

Low distortion lens great for setting tines straight on fountain pens - or any other use you may have for it of course.

LEDs way too dim and really blue - even concerned about possible UV emissions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cool and neat - fits in cutlery drawer, 20 Jan. 2014
Simple, does what you want. Just takes a minute to get used to the light touch buttons (no heavy pressing required!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice pen and smooth Pilot nib, 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a medium nib of the flat moiety, so gives a slightly italic result which I enjoy very much. It is great to be able to see the ink level in the cartridge.

It took a bit of persuading to get going (needed to wash it through a few times), but that can happen with any fountain pen. Also should you wish to adjust the ink flow (give it a chance to work in first), the nib and feed can be removed so as to avoid damaging the feed.

It fits nicely in the pen holder in my folder, so the lack of clip isn't really a problem.
There is plenty of room in the body of the pen, so it can take the CON-50 piston fill adaptor so that bottled ink of your choice can be used instead of cartridges.

The triangular grip is interesting, and I think helps keep me holding the pen in the right position (always useful with any kind of flat type nib)!

Overall I am pleased with this purchase.

:)
