Well the ink I chose and the cell phone camera made the text to hard to read so it will be transcribed here

I found this pen on a big online retailer (i dont know if its ok to cite websites) for 9.99 and got 2 shipping on it as well!

Moving on. So how does it write? Very well. For how small and fine the nib is it is very well behaved. I have no issues with skips or hard starts, if I write fast it keeps up. The construction is solid. It appears to be brass and has some heft despite being a fairly thin pen. It came with the converter as well. This pen has become my go to pen for when I want a fine line.

 

The downsides.

For me I have to grip it harder than I would like since it is thin and this tends to fatigue my hand after awhile. It is also plated and so the gold on the cap band has started to wear off a bit. However, I am very rough with my pens putting them in pockets with keys etc.
