A few months ago I was surfing the Internet looking for fountain pens and came upon this interesting site, xFountainPens.com headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA. The prices were definitely low, and free shipping with a $15 order so I decided to purchase a cream colored Bulow X750 Legislatur Fountain Pen with a medium nib and some converters.
This is a substantial pen, heavy and big like a cigar and nicely weighted once the cap is on. The silver nib, barrel, and cap appointments make a nice counterpoint to the cream color, and the detailing is amazing (such as the engraving on the silver band around the cap). While I prefer a fine nib, the line from this medium nib is not too wide. The nib itself has a tiny bit of flex to it, so the ink line can be slightly thicker or thinner depending upon the pressure exerted. The only problem I have with the pen is that it skips ink, which is annoying. Once I'm writing, there is no skip, so it may simply be I'm not putting enough pressure on the pen when I start (or there's a problem with the flow of ink to the nib).
I'm definitely interested in trying other pens from this site, as well as some of the inks. The prices are very good and the shipping is fast (I ordered on a Tuesday and got the pen on Friday). But I'm going to look for a fine nib next time, just for a little difference.
