I have always wanted a Hinze pen ever since I saw them at a pen show I attended. When the opportunity came up I jumped on this beautiful pen. The material is amazing and it wrote well right out of the box. I am very impressed with the workmanship and the friendliness of Hinze. You have a customer for life.
The Blue Galaxy is absolutely gorgeous. It picks up the light beautifully. My only complaint is that it arrived with the feed not properly seated. I had difficulty drawing ink into it, and it wanted to leak. Once I realized the problem and pressed the feed into place (spraying ink in the process), the pen has worked like a dream. It writes smoothly, looks great and I love the blue nib.
