With a simple push button device, the nib withdraws into the body of the pen, closing an air-tight seal behind it to stop it from drying out. With a matte black barrel and trim, this pen is weighted beautifully so it feels comfortable in the hand.
This is not only a stylish design to look at it is also an innovative design to use. Comes in a gorgeous gift box with an ink cartridge and a converter.

- Interesting but very useful fountain pen Review by Edwin
- I bought this pen as it was an oddity, a retractable nib fountain pen and I wanted to expand the pens I use away from the traditional fountain pens. I had seen some people online complaining about the location of the clip as it is close to where you hold the pen so I was a little bit concerned to buy it 'unseen' but there was nothing to be concerned about. It is an amazing pen to write with and the clip suits my grip perfectly. I find that the clip works for me a lot like the faceted grip on the Lamy Safari forcing to hold the pen correctly and stopping me from rotating the pen whilst writing. I use this pen mainly for quick note taking, as a quick click and it is good to write with and with another click the nib is safely hidden from accidental damage whilst on my desk. I would definitely recommend the pen to people as the nib has a nice fine line and is a joy to write with. (Posted on 30/11/2016)
