Last time I wrote about cheap fountain pens, I was very impressed at the quality for pens that can be bought using spare change. The sub $10 and sub $5 category have really shone lately, both in the quality of the construction, and how they often write better than pens costing upwards of $100.
JustWrite recently sent me a huge batch of pens from their new sub $5 range, and after playing with them the past couple of weeks I have my final review to share with you guys. I’m pleased to say that all of these pens exceeded my expectations.
So yeah, I bought one. The Hero Summer Color, a top-to-toe replica of the Lamy Safari. I blogged about this pen recently and soon after, bought one for myself to see if it really could emulate the best parts of the Lamy Safari. It’s in my hands now, so let’s see how it compares to the Safari, but let’s also see if the parts are interchangeable!
