Pen Review - Wality Eye Dropper Pen


On recommendation from the fountain pen group on Google Plus, I took the opportunity to look into the nature of eye dropper fountain pens.  For those not familiar, most fountain pens use either a converter or a cartridge to hold the ink, whereas an eye dropper has the ink placed into the body of the pen and feeds directly inwards.

The brand recommended was Wality, available in a spectacular range of different nib sizes, flow rates, and body types, and all being available in dollars with the shipping somehow included in the low price...

Suffice it to say, for the equivalent of less than a tenner, I wasn't expecting much from the pen...

I was pleasantly surprised...

The packaging was one of the surprises, most things from overseas arrive in sealed cardboard, this however came in a pen case with a cloth wrapping that had been sewn shut at the top and sealed with wax...

Curious indeed...


The pen is very light, being made of thin plastic, the nib is equivalent to a european medium nib, but one with a very fast flow.  That said, unlike other eyedropper pens that I've used, this pen doesn't leak all the ink out the second you put it to the paper.  Easy to write with, not at all scratchy on the paper, but it does take a while to start flowing in the first place.


Overall, quite impressed with the pen, may consider getting another at some point.
