As I promised in the last of my reviews, I would put up the specifications of the four pens I reviewed so you could get a better idea about the pens than my subjective point of view would give. All figures are approximate and not industrially accurate, just the best I could do with the tools I've got. Grip diameters are taken at the point on the grip where my fingers naturally fall, generally about midpoint or closer to the nib than midpoint. Barrel diameters are taken at widest point. Weights are manufacturer's specification, because I seem to have misplaced my kitchen scale. :headsmack:
