Congrats on the pen and thanks for the nice review. It looks like the nib is a M?

In fact it is a slightly stubbed m, depending of how you handle the pen 45° to  70°, it will either write like a stub or like a m

Thank you for sharing your pen.  I was not aware that Sheaffer made solid color vacs.   I would like to get one of the fat model TDs before they switched to the TM in 49?
