The Caramel Macchiato arrived today, Shawn, and I LOVE IT!
For a size comparison (note that the TWSBI Micarta (rightmost pen) is not aligned at the bottom so the length might be misleading; it is 5-5/16" (13.5 cm); that's a Nakaya Piccolo Cigar in the middle).
This pen is perfectly made - the seams are seamless (that is, can't detect the seam by rubbing a thumb over it - beautiful job), everything looks and feels perfect. And I love the threads on the butt of the pen, to screw the cap on when in use.
I couldn't be more pleased with this pen.
OH! And the steel F nib! -- I said that I liked my F line a bit thinner than usual, and Shawn NAILED it! It is perfect!
When I ordered the pen, I sortv thought, eh, I'll like it and all, but I probably won't use it much, cos... NAKAYA (I use my Nakayas the most of my pens). I thought I was buying the pen to look at, cos I like the Caramel Macchiato. Well, Shawn really showed me up. Hahahaha. I can see this pen as a daily user. I have been using it at work for the past couple of hours. I love it!
