The FountainK Pen unscrews from its hardshell encasing, which is fitted with a strong metal clip, and separates the pen into the five sections: the copper cap, nib and grip section, ink cartridge, spacer and spring, and the copper FountainK body. The nib and grip section unscrews, revealing where a small ink cartridge sits once punctured. This pen includes a spacer and spring, which allows for rough use, because it will keep the ink cartridge from moving if jarred. Another neat feature is that an empty cartridge with converter comes with the pen, which allows you to be able to truly flirt with nostalgia, because it makes it possible to refill the pen by inserting the tip of the nib directly into a liquid reservoir of ink. As you twist the converter, it draws the ink up into the pen, so you can cut down on ink costs.
I’ve never used a pen like this, but it flows so smoothly on the page, and is very easy to take apart and refill. The FountainK copper pen is a sleek and heavy duty pen, perfect for writers on the move, as well as travel writers like myself. I could take this pen camping and it would well outlast me while roughing it in the wild. From the sleek golden metal to the etched silver nib, the FountainK pen by Karas Kustoms is a classy pen, built for decades of hard use. I love the style and the ease of use, and how I have more control over my handwriting; though, when an idea strikes, no pen can save me from the chicken scratch that tends to follow. These are legit pens, for serious writers.
