caligraphy pens for lefty's
Comments about Panache Calligraphy Pens:
It is not like the pens your learned to write with in the 60's. It really is for lefty's and is great for drawing but not writing if you were born in the 50's
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

won't buy again
from Asheville, NC
I bought the two pen set. one green glitter, the other, the blue glitter. I use only the smallest broad nib in the set because I use it for personal letter writing. It didn't take any time for the plastic pen to crack and loosen to the point that I couldn't use it. I wasn't worried, I had another but have noticed now that it too is cracked at the screw section. I usually use a dip pen and nib. I think I should have bitten the bullet and spent that money on a good fountain pen. It writes pretty smooth, ink lasts a long while. The tip does dry out overnight. Cleaning is easy.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry that these pens didn't last for you as they should have. Please look for an email from one of our Customer Care agents – we'll be happy to take care of this!

Reviewing Panach Calligraphy Pen Set
from St. Louis, MO
I love this pen package really only for 1 pen….The only way to purchase this Panache Penis to buy the entire package. The package contains an extra fine point calligraphy nib that I usein my everyday work with my calligraphy services I wish there was a way to purchase just the extra fine point nib

By A medievalist
from Columbus, OHio
The pen's appearance is déclassé. Multicolor sparkles unappealing.The nibs are difficult to get to flow. The broad nib never did write. The nibs dry out overnight in a closed pen. I've noticed this in the new Schaeffer pens as well. Both Panache and Schaeffer have abandoned the screw on system with push-one, which doesn't seem to work.One cannot write or print quickly or the flow becomes sporadic leaving very ugly, sloppy looking lettering. One must stroke very slowly to maintain ink flow.

"Cheap plastic and average nibs"
from San Diego
I will make this product work, I just won't look forwardto doing so.
from Bella Vista, AR
Pens are really comfortable to hold especially for people with small hands, the nibs are a good quality.
from Minneapolis, mn
Medium nib worked well. I was never able to make the broad nib feed ink and eventually gave up. Will probably not order Panache again.

Good Calligraphy Tool,
from Bloomington, Indiana
I use this as an integral part of my compositional process. Fountain pens are perfect because the ease of ink flow means you can write for hours without wrist strain. This calligraphy set has many fine nibs with which I can write highly legible, even beautifully looking music. My only complaint comes from the aesthetic of the pens themselves. They look cheap, with their plastic barrels of pinkish-burgundy and blue imbued with glittery flecks. They look cheap, and even effeminate, which has given me a few raised eyebrows in rehearsals and collaborative settings. Furthermore, because the barrels and caps are plastic, they are subject to cracking should they be put under unintentional pressure on the barrel or cap. Minor and to be expected, but an eventuality if they ever leave the desk.Lastly, I wish all calligraphy pens came with more barrels. Most sets come with many more nibs than barrels, which presents a problem when a barrel gets lost or cracks. Personally, the only time I buy new sets is when the pen falls from my pocket in a public place and I'm out of barrels. I have a high surplus of nibs at the moment. But all manufacturers do this; my complaint is against the industry.
