NIB & PERFORMANCE
This Sheaffer Sagaris feels quite solid and durable in hand. It is much more slender than I was expecting. It feels slightly thin in my hand, especially at the section which thins out, compared to the barrel. However, the weight is comfortable and nicely balanced when unposted, which is how I chose to write with it. Posted, it becomes top heavy and not particularly comfortable for my hand. I suspect users with larger hands won't have issues with posting and the weight.
- Accepts Sheaffer cartridges or converter.
- Writes right out of the box.
- Well-balanced pen,
- Suitable for smaller hands unposted, and larger hands when posted.
- Cap clicks on very snugly. I love it. (FPGeeks loves it too.)
- Classic appearance. I like it.
- If you really like to post your pens and you have small hands, it may be difficult - it becomes top heavy.
- Dislike the grey converter body. Ink is still visible but I don't understand why it's grey.
The Sheaffer Sagaris is a very nice pen, especially in its price range. It offers a reliable, solid nib in an attractive body, at a very decent price point. Just over that of the Lamy Safari, giving you a more elegant pen. I also like that there are other colour options available, all of which are quite professional and tasteful. I had a very positive experience with the Sheaffer Sagaris (and the lovely Pen Company, as always), therefore I can happily recommend both to you!
