Appearance, Design, Size:
This pen is very light and pretty small. It is shorter than my Pelikan m205 and thinner than my Sailor Sapporo. The shape, though, isn't unpleasant, so it's nice to hold. So far, it's not a very comfortable size for long writing sessions, but it's great for shorter sessions. Daniel polished it, so it's very smooth. The cap screws on and posts well.
It's a lever fill. It's my first one, and I don't much about them. It seems to be working fine, and holds ink well. It has a new sac, so I'm expecting to last a good while.
The 2668 nib is a steel medium nib. Not much flex, but it's a bit springy. The tines are misaligned, causing some scratchiness on the left stroke. Fortunately, replacement nibs are pretty cheap and easy to find.
I was always afraid that vintage pens would be super fragile, but this pen is pretty sturdy-feeling. It really has a lot of character. I think I may look for this pen in a J size, which is supposed to be a bit larger all around. It would definitely make a good pocket pen, since it fits even in shallow shirt pockets.
Thank you, Fountain Pen Geeks!
