Hah, if only. Sadly, this is just my recurring problem with picture-taking. I had to add additional lightning sources. The pen is plain hard rubber, and years have discoloured it a bit. But the nib is one of these incredible NY 14ct superflex, so 585 gold.
Awesome pen again, postumous thanks to MT&CO.

Thanks for the nice comments. Were I right-handed, there should be more to get from this outrageously fine nib.
Actually, this pen is what a flexible Pilot Parallel pen would be.
