I might not have a true sports car, but the Ferrari 100 truly lives up to its name!
This pen came in the July 2018 iPenBox. I’ve been meaning to post a review about it ever since! The theme of the box was “fast,” and that seems very appropriate in this case. Not only is the pen named after the iconic vehicle, it writes swiftly, efficiently, and smoothly.
The pen came with two cartridges, but the converter included also works beautifully. There are no skips, and the pen has a nice heavy weight to it. The Ferrari really lays down some ink, so whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing just depends on your use. If you’re a fountain pen connoisseur and you typically use premium paper, then I think you’ll absolutely love it. If you just use regular paper (like me), then be prepared to only use one side of it.
Like any sports car, looks are just as important as performance. The smooth red pen is good looking on its own, and it doesn’t hurt to have the Ferrari logo on the end of the cap!
What’s even better than having a nice pen to write with that also looks great on your desk? Texting your friends and family and telling them you now own a Ferrari!
