That's class the wrench, the silicon grease...a good looking pen. I'd not thought of buying a demonstrator before. Now, yes.
Now yes, with a semi-flex nib...that is the next step....even for extra.
It was great to ask the knowledgeable customers what do you want, how can we do this well.
I am not sure if they made a pen to price or a pen, and then made a price; there being a huge difference. I'd suspect the latter.
The understated frill on the nib matches the pen. IMO
I don't remember was this a screw out nib, so that one could put on thinner or wider nibs?
Or seeing it disassembles well, that one could buy thicker, thinner and more or semi-flexible nibs.
That ink bottle looked good too.

Everyone says poor Mozart dead at only 36. None say poor Mendelson, dead at only 38. His family only allowed him to start at 20, but before, musicians use to come to the Mendelson garden to steal the music of Mendelson and his sister. A good artist also, can still buy prints of his famous Scottish drawings in Scotland.
