Started skipping, felt dry.

http://www.fountainp...port/?p=3014735   and it is now wetter and much better.

 

Couple of pages and I'm becoming used to the weight of the pen, posted.

Nice review  :thumbup:

I bought one of these last week and love it, it weighs twice as much as my Sport AL which I like and fitted with a 1.1mm stub nib it glides on most papers :)

The plastic sleeve inside the cap is strange though, I'm not sure what Kaweco used it for as the Lilliput brass doesn't have it.

Nice looking pen. I still haven't decided about buying one, yet.

Does anyone know if the Brass uses the same nib units as the Dia2? Thanks.

Yes, I only noticed it after a few weeks.
Very good match (colour) to the brass!
I swapped the fine for an extra fine, and the (refilled) cartridges are lasting ages, 8 solid pages of A4 so far. 
I'm still smiling at the nib, smooth as silk, real joy to use.
Another benefit, being so solid, it makes a good pen to carry in my trouser pocket - minute taking at meetings etc.
It is slowly tarnishing to the dull brass colour, more to go I guess.
 I'm thoroughly pleased with it.

I'm still thinking about one of these. An aluminum Kaweco is is my pants pocket most days. A little more heft would bother me. I'm am enjoying all these reviews.

Well, I'm a convert - even without a converter!  I do think it's a lovely pen to use, and as it happens it's the very first to feature at a new meta-review site you may enjoy too...
