Interesting review. How large is the pen (compared to a Lamy Safari, for instance)? Can it be converted to an eye-dropper pen?

This is an interesting review of a pen that must be new. The design appears to be drawn from the past with some nice detail touches such as the nib imprint repeated on the top of the cap. The knurling on the sides of the cap top is also a nice touch.

Hi
the dia is smaller than safari.
It is designed like a Kaweco vintage classic pen.
No it cannot be used as an eyedropper as there are metallic threads inside the barrel.
It can only use the converter or cartridge.

If you are looking for the classic Kaweco and can be used as eyedropper i would propose the Kaweco student

Cheers

The vintage look indeed refers to the early Kaweco pruducts in 1883 with all the advantages of new techniques.
Conforming to my information there was a uge pause of production...

After seeing the review, I could help but pull the trigger on my own Dia. Cult Pens still has them on close out for about $105US. Looking forward to its arrival.
