PEN REVIEW: Pelikan Script 1.0

A quickie review of the Pelikan Script 1.0 for you today.

I bought this inexpensive (I’m thinking under $10) pen at the SF Pen Show a couple of years ago. I remember someone saying that this is the pen that young French children use when they are learning to write. I’d dipped it in a little ink to test it out and then put it in a drawer and totally forgot all about it until a couple of weeks ago.

There’s no converter – and I don’t think one is even available for it. One of the standards might fit – to be honest, I didn’t even try. Instead, I bought a couple of packs of Pelikan cartridge ink from Goulet Pens.

Definitely a big broad nib. For such an inexpensive pen, I found it quite nice to write with. Smooth, maybe even a bit of a “skater.”

Very easy to deal with. Am thinking this would be a fun pen to take on trips. Just pop 1-2 cartridges and the pen into a bag and we’re off. No mess, no fuss. And, really, if this pen gets lost in transit, I’m not going to be heartbroken for long.

You know what’s irritating about this pen? It’s not made to be posted. Not an issue if you don’t normally post, but a bit, well, irritating if you’re a poster like I.  The cap will definitely fit on to the end of the pen, but it rattles around up there like mad.
All-in-all, I like the Pelikan Script. 
Are you into any cheapie pens right now? Or maybe a special Pelikan? I love that they make pens for every budget, don’t you?
