- Sheaffer Calligraphy Maxi Kit
Ryan, South Africa. 22 August 2014
The Maxi Kit comes with three pen bodies and three nib units. As opposed to the mini kit which has one pen body and three nib units.
The nib units are italic style nibs in three sizes. Fine @ 0.8mm, Medium @ 1.3mm and Broad @ 1.8mm
Along with the three pens you receive a calligraphy instruction booklet which shows you how to write in different calligraphic styles, a blank paper booklet for practicing your writing (although the paper quality of the booklet is poor; you would be better off using normal exam pad paper), as well as an astonishing twenty different colour ink cartridges. So you will be able to sample different colours before purchasing a whole Sheaffer ink bottle.
The bodies of the pens have a cut out section in the middle to enable you to view the ink level of the cartridges. Unfortunately, this also means you cannot convert the pens into eyedropper pens whereby you use the barrel of the pen as a reservoir. Because of this, be sure to not throw away your empty cartridges, you can refill them with bottled ink and international cartridges won't work in Sheaffer pens I believe.
I recommend buying this kit if you are new to fountain pens and want to know why fountain pens are superior to ballpoints or to give your handwriting a little flair due to the italic nibs. It's also a great way to expand your library of inks and pens.
Overall this is great value for money and at only R359 it's only about R100 more than the mini kit.
