For $17.00 this is a superior pen in all ways. It is large and feels great in my paw. The nib started out OK but improved with use.

I ain't no writer so excuse the short review. Just plain impresses me. smile.gif

Oh yea, this is the largest of the 4 Sharks. biggrin.gif

Thanks for your reviews of the Duke Shark pen. You mentioned that it was the "largest of the 4 Sharks". By that, did you mean it's bigger than the, say, Nettuno Shark fountain pen? (Late edit: :doh: Please ignore the question. I hadn't realized it before, but some of the 4 Duke 'Mako' (Shark) models are different sizes! It's only when I looked at a picture of them all together here that I clued in blush.gif )

I just received one of these from Isellpens.com, and I agree with you on all counts. It's weight surprised me, but it is remarkably well balanced (without cap posted). I am certainly pleased at the quality of pen I received at this price!

I have been fighting the urge to expand my small collection for some time now, and I must say that I have failed. I just ordered this pen and a handful of Heros from iSellPens. I will share my impressions when they arrive.

I received this pen and have been using it for several days now. I think it is gorgeous. It is smooth and writes a fairly wet line. My only complaint is that it is not a quick starter. I have to scribble for a few seconds before the ink starts flowing.

Once I get it going, though, I could write all day with it. For the bragain price of around $17, it is real deal and I highly recommend it.

How is the clip on this pen? Is it holding up well?

I'm looking to get the pen as a first Duke pen but I'm concerned about the spring clip.

Never noticed any kind of problem with the clip but I don't use it every day either.
Which one were you interested in? I am going to sell the smaller (Green) one soon.
