Think Iceland Fountain Pen… First off, I must preface, I am lucky – really lucky – to have some very nice friends. One such friend, has been following my fountain pen adventures for awhile now. He suggested that I should try one of his pens. So, he sent me this beautiful Think Iceland fountain pen. Think Pens, come in a variety of colors and styles. These pens are all made using highly creative motifs, primarily using multiple colored acrylics.
The first thing I noticed when I received the Think Iceland Pen, was the box it came in. It is made of a wood, and painted in the same bright colors as the Think Logo. The top slid out to reveal a well packed, Think Iceland Fountain Pen. I Have to say right off the bat, it is a beauty. A bigger pen than I am accustomed to, as I traditionally use smaller vintage pens…
I removed the Think Fountain Pen from it’s case, the weight is pretty hefty – in a good way. It feels good in the hand. I uncapped the pen to check out the nib… This Iceland was equipped with an iridium tipped silver medium nib. After examining the nib, I unscrewed the top section and found a piston converter already installed. I love when companies include a converter.
I didn’t take much time to ink the Think Iceland Fountain Pen up… I really liked the blue accents in the acrylic, so I picked a nice Royal Blue ink from Pelikan. The pen started immediately. That’s right, the first down stoke produced a nice fluid and smooth line. After some testing on various paper, I found this pen to be extremely smooth. The pen and ink combo was very well matched everything behaved very well. Ink stayed put, no scratchiness on the nib. The pen was able to produce some decent shading even with the M nib. For more on the ink, here is a link to my Pelikan Royal Blue Ink Review.
One thing I must confess, I normally like to post the cap on my pens. I couldn’t handle the size and weight of the Iceland when it was posted, but this is just a slight issue. All in all, this pen was very impressive. I brought it to work for a couple weeks, where many people commented on the appearance. The Think Pens Iceland received nothing but great comments, from men and women alike.
The pen has a great fit and finish. It works great, is a conversational piece while not being gaudy. I had a great time with it, I was sad that I had to return it. Very thankful that I was afforded the opportunity to try a Think Pen.
