Its a work horse Francis - no doubt about that! Both the demo Streamline, and the Black Streamline are exceptional in their design and function. Just a point about nibs. Remember everyone we write with the tip of the pen which is iridium. Iridium is on gold and steel nibs. Performance wise it's tough to tell the difference between Gold and Steel. Gold is a little softer - that's about it. Edison pens are exceptional builds as well; and they come standard with the #6 and #5 steel nibs. Don't be afraid of the steel nib if you like this pen.
I fully agree Bill, !
My preferred nibs are in fact the steel ones, ground to a stub or oblique
