I'm glad you found the nib precisely as I did. I thought it was just me. I have this exact same pen and the nib is incredibly fine for a medium, with absolutely no flex. Other people's findings have differed so much. Curiously, you say it's a little light unposted: I think mine weighs a ton even unposted because of the heavy metal section.
thanks

Thanks i suppose
weight can be subjective, dependent very much on style of writing and the way we hold our pens as well

best regards

These are certainly well made pens that feel solid in your hand. If I recall even the inner cap threads are metal and the pocket clip is a work of art. I especially like that the clip can be adjusted for thickness of the material it will overlap. Nice review!
