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.

Wisdom of the Founders, and their check and balances system is more a wonder than I thought.
Due to Mauricio's improved definition of Super-flex, I try not use the term Easy Full Flex, but fail...sigh.
Semi-flex is an “almost” flex; not a ‘flex’ nib. It is great for regular writing with a touch of flair. It can give you some fancy; but it is not made for real fancy writing. For bit more of that get a maxi-semi-flex. Both spread tines 3X. Those are not "Flex" nibs.
Wider than Normal does not exist. Wider than Japanese does. Every company has it's very own standard + slop/tolerance. Developed from the users of it's pens and inks only; not the users or inks of other companies pens. The size you grind a nib to, is your standard only. Paper and ink matter to nib width. Thank god for 1/2 sizes or it would be boring.
