So far we looked at the Viceroy Grand Victorian and Grand Barleycorn finish and the Corinthian, now glance this way folk at a small miracle.
The Yard-o-Led Viceroy Pocket is big yet tiny, weighing in at only 27 gms unlike it's big brother that weighed over 67 gms and it's short, only 4" (just over 101mm) capped. But size can be deceiving as as I hope you'll see by the end of this review.
Put down your Viceroy Pocket Victorian next to a Viceroy Grand Victorian and it's possible to simply overlook the smaller sibling.
Looking at them both posted and the size difference is even more obvious.
But first impressions are sometimes wrong.
Look at the Pocket Victorian next to the Corinthian.
The tiny little Pocket Victorian turns out to be the same length as the unposted Corinthian (see the review on the Corinthian for explanations of why I don't post my Corinthian) and you actually hold the Pocket Victorian by the body instead of a conventional section so the diameter at that point is actually wider than the Corinthian.
In use, the Pocket Victorian actually feels larger than the Corinthian.
It's when both are capped that again you notice the big difference.
The Viceroy Pocket Victorian has rapidly become my go to pen, small enough to fit in even shallow shirt pockets or a folio, yet large enough to use comfortably.
One thing to remember though is that it really is cartridge only and just one cartridge will fit. If like Monarchs down through all time you want an heir and a spare, the spare will have to be in your pocket not the pen.
