Serwex 101 fountain pen review8 December 2014
I received this Serwex 101 eyedropper demonstrator for free with another pen I’d bought from Fountain Pen Revolution. It can be found for less than $6 if you look around.
The nib is as scratchy as they come without being useless. Any scratchier and it would be tearing up the paper but it doesn’t and it fulfils its basic function of putting ink onto paper. It’s quite a wet writer and it’s very consistent.
The clip is fairly thin metal and the cap, section and barrel are all made from cheap feeling plastic. This isn’t one of those pens that belies its price.
The Serwex 101 is a demonstrator and I do have a fondness for demonstrators.
I also rather like eyedroppers. Look how lovely that ink looks in there.
This is a scratchy pen that looks and feels cheap. However, it actually is cheap and it is rather fun. I can’t particularly recommend it in itself but for the price, it wouldn’t do any harm to pick one up one day and play around with it for a while, but only if you want to play around with nib adjustment or grinding.
