A quickie review of the Pelikan Script 1.0 for you today.
I bought this inexpensive (I’m thinking under $10) pen at the SF Pen Show a couple of years ago. I remember someone saying that this is the pen that young French children use when they are learning to write. I’d dipped it in a little ink to test it out and then put it in a drawer and totally forgot all about it until a couple of weeks ago.
There’s no converter – and I don’t think one is even available for it. One of the standards might fit – to be honest, I didn’t even try. Instead, I bought a couple of packs of Pelikan cartridge ink from Goulet Pens.
Definitely a big broad nib. For such an inexpensive pen, I found it quite nice to write with. Smooth, maybe even a bit of a “skater.”
Very easy to deal with. Am thinking this would be a fun pen to take on trips. Just pop 1-2 cartridges and the pen into a bag and we’re off. No mess, no fuss. And, really, if this pen gets lost in transit, I’m not going to be heartbroken for long.
