The pen is amazing. XD It has great flow and if you have experience with dip pens I totally recommend it . If you are more of a ballpoint fellow then don't go for this as it gives you a different style and holding feel. It works great with 70 or 80 lb sketchbook paper and dries super fast. I recommended that if you plan on leaving it out for a long time to TAKE OUT THE INK CARTRIDGE and put it...
I bought both the School (Extra fine point) and the School G (Fine point) and the warnings here about giving the ink a chance to flow are true. The first 3 or 4 times I used the Fine point pen I was convinced I wasted money on it. The line was inconsistant, laying down no ink for while, then I would change the angle a bit to get more ink to flow. The bright side is that it never let the ink blot and run puddles on the page. Once the ink gets going it's really nice. Other countries & brands claim a fine point on their metal nib cartridge pens but the School Extra fine is amazingly fine for a non-dip pen. You just have to work at it for a while. As for connecting the cartridge for the 1st time after you push the cart into the pointed "filler" piece it does seem to have a small gap between the pen (where the pen's filler pokes into the ink cart.) and the ink cartridge itself. I don't think there is a cover or cap that must be removed from the ink cart. But I cannot seen any reason to remove the cart's darker-colored top piece. It may just make a huge mess.
I haven't started using it yet because I'm having trouble figuring out how to set up the pen. I'm confused with how the cartidge should face. can someone help me with this?
When I recieved this pen it was difficult to use it but I realized how you put it together it really works out fine. Its a great use when outlining your manga!
I really enjoy using this pen. This is something every inker should have. While the tip doesn't flex quite as much as a regular nib, that's a small price to pay for the convenience of not having to re-dip the tip every few seconds.
