Appearance & Design:(8/10)
Construction & Quality:(8/10) The pen is light because it made out of plastic and you can feel it. The metal work is chromed plastic so it feels cheap when you actually see it. I was slightly disappointed when I held the pen in my hand the first time. I am also keeping the cost of the pen in mind with my rating. I paid about $16 per pen including a converter and S&H.
Weight & Dimensions: (7/10)The pen is lighter than the Phelias, because it does not have a little metal tube in the barrel that Phelias contain.
Length: 5.25 inches
Posted Length: 5.75 inches
I don't have a smaller weight scale so I could not provide a weight measurement, however, it is lighter than Phelias.
The width of the barrel is the same as Pheilas.
Despite its lightness, it feels fine in my hand. I was able to write non-stop for large number of papers. I have already refilled the converter multiple times with two different inks.
Nib & Performance: (10/10)This is the best part of the pen. As you can see in the picture, it has steel nib with an exact shape of a Phelias nib. The nib is smooth to write with and very efficient. The best for the price. You will get Waterman pen for a low cost. I don't see much difference in my Phelias and this pen, except my Phelias contains a broad nib, and it is a two tone nib. But that is another posting.

Filling System & Maintenance: (10/10) The pen came with a cartridge. I had to purchase a converter, which is a standard Waterman filling system, and it is efficient.
Cost & Value: (10/10) As I mentioned above, I paid total of $32 for two pens with converters, including S&H on ebay. Cannot beat that cost. These are excellent pens for that price.
Conclusion: (53/60)Overall a very efficient, inexpensive, branded pen. It met my expectation in cost, efficiency, and appearance; however, I was expecting these pens to be slightly heavier. It writes well for a long time without feeling any fatigue in my fingers. It starts writing every time without any trouble. I would recommend this pen. See one more picture for design. I have color coded these pens, as you will see writing samples in the pictures. The blue pen hold blue and the red flame,... you got it.
