This pen has a nice weight to it, the cap is screw on with threads to screw it on when posted as well.
Then nib is a somewhere between fine and medium (closer to medium) labeled Iridium Point Paris.
The screw type piston converter comes with the pen and works well, the pen also accepts international cartridges.
The clear dome on top of the cap shows off the Baoer emblem.
With the first ink I put in this pen (Pelikan 4001 Blue-Black) it was a real hard starter. I would have to shake the pen vigorously or put more pressure on the converter to force ink through to start the flow, even after only a few minuets of non-use. Even after washing a couple of times this persisted until I changed the ink to MB black and the problem was solved. This ink flows nicely and the pen starts immediately every time, even after a day or two of sitting idle. The pen has nice weight and balance. The nib is smooth, and is now leaving a nice line.
I would recommend this pen, especially for the price. It may not be up to the standard of the MB it is made to resemble, but since I have never had the privilege of using a MB I don't know the difference. Unless someone wants to send me one to try, I will remain in blissful ignorance.
