My first fountain pen review post here on FPN, so I would gladly welcome any feedback and comments.

A note, it's certainly not that blue in real life, it's far more of a grey/steel blue than that vibrant blue.

Beautiful pen. Nice review, I actually enjoy the handwriting compared to the usual wall of text. You paid a great price for that thing too

Great pen Tangster! Guess we'll all have to get a Blackbird to learn such a wonderfully readable hand.

It is great to see a pen brought back into a usable state and Mabie Todd pens are certainly worth seeking out. Good first review!
