It may very well be true that they have nibs from heaven but they are not on my list because...
* Too blingy.
* I dislike metal sections.
* Big $$$ - you can get a lot of Pelikan, Waterman, Visconti, Stipula, Sailor or Pilot for those prices. Indeed you can easily get Nakaya Maki-e.
* At that price point I do not want to use a converter.
* Their website has incomprehensible navigation. The pens are hard to find, hard to see, no detail and far too small... and I have a 27" hi-def monitor.
I don't mind dropping a lot on a pen but the Duponts just aren't my thing. If anyone wants to send one out to me on a demo basis to try to change my mind, I'd be more than happy to give it a whirl but I bet it'll be coming back soon.
To each his own, that's what makes life interesting...
PS Yes, I have fondled them.
