I find the size and weight perfect for me, as I prefer larger pens and measuring 6 1/2" capped, this is no tiny little writing instrument. As far as weight is concerned, the "Strawberry" isn't heavy ... just looks like would be. As a matter of fact, I was surprised by how light weight it is, as well as comfortable in my hand. I would compare the size to the Edison Nouveau Premiere Cappuccino, as I'm familiar with that pen.
The nib is a broad, 2-tone, smooth as silk joy to write with!
The filling system is converter or cartridge and John supplies a converter, along with 2 cartridges with his pens.
I'm offering two writing samples ... one done on very cheap notebook paper purchased from Wal-Mart for less than 50 cents and the second sample is done on onion skin paper. Inked with Noodler's Nightshade, the "Strawberry's " nib glides across both papers, leaving a consistent line that is neither too wet nor too dry and a wonderful writing experience. Please don't judge this pen and nib by my poor handwriting, asthat would be so unfair! LOL
All in all, I am very, very impressed with this beautiful pen.
