Inner box is a bit cheap (white carboard inside); pen held by a silicon band.
Inner inner box. Contains a cartridge (international standard), a syringe and a converter (see other pics for the converter)
(Standard A4 80g/m² laserjet paper, Waterman Florida blue. Some skipping but nothing too bad, will need some adjusting)
14.5 cm closed.
Cap is 7 cm long. Pen posted is 16.8 cm long. The pen isn't really designed to have the cap posted.
2 Turns are needed to remove the cap. It holds securely.
Nib is 2.5 cm long. Pen is 12.8 cm long, threads' diameter is 1.3 cm, end of body 1.4 cm,
and smallest section's diameter is 1 cm (just before the metal ring)
Body engraved old fashion style
Bird, oak, pearl. Let's hug trees and wear sandals
Your average converter. Note the plastic screw on the section.
Nice pressing on the nib. Still on with the forest theme. Smooth writing.
The nib before flexing (or when things are about to go wrong)
The nib after flexing (afterwards, you'll have to bend it back to normal position).
It shows the limits of the concept. It's flexible, but in the end, it's more to be used as springy.
As usual, sorry about the pictures' quality. I changed the camera, but it seems the camera wasn't the problem
*Edit* I forgot to mention, but every pen in this design is unique, due to a random factor in resin. The colours are the same, but their repartition on the surface changes.
*Edit 2* I've just read the booklet, and they advise to refill the converter in the ink pot, and never to put the pen's head in the ink pot. This makes me wondering if using the pen as an eye-dropper is such a good idea in the end.
*Edit 3* I think, after a day of use, that the problem is ink-flow. I have to get it adjusted. Flex is behaving nicely actually.
