Do all Le Man 100 nibs flex as much as the one you have?

What ink and nib size do you have?

Thank you for your nice review. I also like le man 100 series. I am very interested in the combination of the first generation nib and the bryar wood. Is the wood coated by lacquer ? How about aging?

hi rokurinpapa

I honestely don't know if the wood is coated by lacquer.My guess would be not because otherwise you would feel the lacquer coating. Properly taken of care these woodens pen will last and age very well.

best regards

I don't own any of these, but used to work with a guy who bought most of the different wood models when they first came out.
All the wood seems to be uncoated. An ink accident permanently stained the barrel of one of his pens.

Regards, greg
Don't feel bad. I'm old; I'm meh about most things.

Flex, did you say flex? My LeMan 100 medium is stiff as a nail. Love the pen though.
