The final pen purchase of the year (I think, but there’s still a week) was from my fountain pen wish list. This is my fifth Franklin-Christoph pen. I chose the King’s Gold bands and a broad italic nib on this pen.
Why I Got It
I’ve like both the styling and performance of all the Franklin-Christoph pens I have. This pen is fairly large with a wide barrel,
I picked the broad italic nib making it almost unique in my accumulation.
For the first fill I picked the reliable Waterman Florida Blue. Since it’s a nib type I’m not familiar with I wanted a reliable, problem free ink. I haven’t used the pen very much but it’s been nice and smooth with a even flow.
The pen is lighter than it looks. Like the Model 66 it’s made from a light acrylic. It takes short international cartridges and comes with one. It also comes with a convertor which is what I’m using.
