My first fountain pen. I still think it is a great pen, but haven’t had one inked up in years, because I have so much other stuff I’d rather use.

When I got into this it was about $10 if I remember correctly.

It is a cartridge converter pen. So it is a great first fountain pen because you can just get a pack of cartridges and get started.

The nib options are limited, all of mine have been the medium nib. And the colors aren’t the best. But I think it is a really good pen.

The one thing I don’t like about this pen is that the point where the grip connects to the pen body is kind of sharp and bothers some people. Wasn’t a problem for me, but it might be a problem for you.

I think this is a no brainer for your first fountain pen or if you want something cheap.
