This review made me order one. I found it in Extra Fine nib, was surprised because I thought it could only be found as broad, mediam and fine. Got to wait a few days now :happyberet:

I have an Ambition, also in pearwood, and I like it a lot. I have an F nib, and I agree that it is stiff. That's one thing I like about it. I use it a lot at work, where I don't necessarily want my documents to have a lot of shading and line variation. I also like the feel of wood on the barrel.

Although I don't plan to run out and buy one, did you know it also comes in coconut?

I have owned and sold, a couple of guilloche models (regret doing so)which were equipped with glassy smooth fine point gold nibs (think they were 18kt). I have a couple of e-motions, and ondoros, all with fine point steel nibs that are so glassy smooth, you might become a believer that a steel nib can hold its own compared to a gold nib...as long as you don't make comparisons with Japanese nibs which are, well, heavenly on all counts..
May you and those you love, be always blessed with peace and never ending joy.

Is ther a big difference between the Pear and Coconut version? I prefer the idea of having harder coconut wood but I'm wondering if it's worth the $50 price bump.
