Posted and capped it is virtually the same as a Parker IM either way and has a capped length of 138mm and posted is 153mm. The weight is 28g, being mainly made of aluminium.
The yellow barrel tapers out in thickness gradually from the bottom upwards to meet the black section which has a soft rubberized surface. When posting the cap it is pushed on until it clicks.
The nib is medium and comes in stainless steel with no markings.
Writing is pleasant and lettering turns out like a Parker IM but very slightly thicker and more defined.
It takes Platignum cartridges or a Monteverde Mini ink converter. I tried it with WHSmith universal cartridges and they seem to work correctly. It does seem to take more effort to pierce the cartridge ends of either brand when inserting though.
Summing up, this pen makes me feel like slimming my collection down so I can use it more often.
