I’ve received the Pelikan Twist as a present from the friend who’d travelled to Germany. This wasn’t my first knowledge about the Pelikan Twist. A buddy had liken it as being an undesirable man’s Nakaya Dorsal Fin. I suppose I can tell the resemblance there however the cost point are in different ends from the spectrums.
My Pelikan Twist includes a vibrant orange body having a sky blue rubber grip. The human body from the pen is triangular, that’s slightly twisted. The Three lines from the triangular body don’t travel inside a straight line in the the top to the the foot of the pen. Rather it twists, hence the specific pen.
The cap pops off and on easily having a click. The cap could be published in the finish from the barrel but don’t expect it to remain there. It is just loosely secure there at the best. The rubber grip is smooth and nice to touch. Nevertheless the moulded grip is very opinionated. It insists noisally that there’s just one proper way to carry the pen. You can either need to conform or suffer attempting to shoehorn the pen for your own way of writing. The triangular grip around the Lamy Safari is much simpler to deal with compared. I don’t write using the traditional tripod grip and also the grip section bothered me greatly. I wrestled by using it everything I write. Within the finish, I could write by using it however i was constantly moving the nib inwardly consequently.
The Pelikan Twist is really a cartridge ripper tools. Pelikan uses the conventional worldwide cartridge and ripper tools size. There’s an abundance of normal worldwide sized inkjet cartridges. After I had initially unscrewed the barrel I’d difficult time obtaining the facets to set up. Ends up, you need to twist the barrel close. You’ll feel it click into position whenever you obtain the barrel closed.
The Pelikan Twist included a medium steel nib. It’s a smooth author but it’s greatly a wet nib. Like a lefty, it’s functional only when I grow it having a dry ink like Pelikan or Graf von Faber-Castell inks.
I like the vibrant colour and also the smooth nib the Pelikan Twist has however i could do with no harsh moulded grip. It is really an interesting choice when just beginning fountain pen. If I needed to learn to grip a pen again, I could get it done using the Pelikan Twist. A minimum of, I’d have to get it done properly.
