Ideal for left and right handed use. The Hero 360 double nib fountain pen is strong enough to produce carbon copies yet retains the free flowing characteristics of the fountain pen. A pen with the best qualities of a ballpoint pen and a fountain pen. The Hero 360 glides effortlessly over the paper just like a normal fountain pen but the twin nibs are strong enough to allow you to press down hard enough to make carbon copies. The double nib allows you to write at any angle just like a ballpoint from perpendicular to a very low angle.
The Hero 360 has two fine nibs placed together to create a ball point tip which provides the strength and rigidity of a ballpoint pen, allowing you to press hard, while retaining the smoothness of a fountain pen. It feels just like a high quality fountain pen but the nib tip will not split no matter how hard you press and will not skip or scratch on the paper. It lays down a consistent fine line regardless of angle, pressure or rotation.
The Hero 360 is a medium weight, nicely balanced, all metal pen made of anodized aluminium with a polished stainless cap and pocket clip. The barrel has a recess for the cap to securely snap into when the cap is posted.
The Hero 360 is similar to the Sailor Trident fountain pen from Japan but with some significant improvements. The Sailor Trident had three nibs and was subject to ink drying in the feeders causing clogging and scratchy writing. This does not happen with the Hero 360. It will not clog and is much less expensive the the Sailor Trident.
