Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better I got this so I could practice my calligraphy skills at home. It seemed to be a good idea as it came with practice sheets, pens, and cartridges. However, the pens are very difficult to use. Changing the cartridges is simple enough, but not all of them seem to dispense the ink as evenly as I would like. The practice sheets are quite helpful, however, and the book has some good tips as well.
