seems like a nice pen, just one question: is the nib really stiff like other Chinese pens?

Hello
yes the nib can be quite stiff, but not hard as nail.
There is some give to it.

I grind the nib from the original fine to med point

How do you grind a nib from a fine to a medium? You can't remove material from a nib and make it wider.

Nice review and a nice looking pen, thanks.
And how can this be, because he is the Kwisatz Haderach.

i own this one and mine came with a med nib. one gripe i have about it is that the gold plate on the nib started to come off after a couple of cleanings... and the fact that doesn't post on the barrel. other than that, it performs great! i still use it in rotation.

Thanks for the review, it looks cool. Just curious, is this a piston filler?

it looks very nice. I hope Chinese firms would experiment with the filling systems a bit and offer 14k nibs. Their steel nibs write like Russian trains over winter rails.

Um... I seem to have a special gift for doing exactly this.
