Thank you, Gatz. No problem.
The gold nib has a little elasticity allowing to vary the line. Without beeing flex, I would qualify it on the small semi-flex nibs. It is very pleasant.
When writing fast the nib behaves as a rigid one.
My nib is an F. The ink flow is between dry and normalyèu - I have asked this adjustement to Matthieu, beacuse it is my preference. I think wet flow does not always allow the nuances of the ink to be seen, ergo I prefer a dryer flow.
I am sorry, I don't have a scan. These are photos.
Patrick C. is a french nibmaster living in sunny south-ouest of France.
Patrick designed it, Matthieu crafted it.
Je dois visite belle Alsace une autre fois est n'est pas seul pour le Riesling et pur manger le foie gras haha
Only 20 The Original Ubik Limited Edition were made
The Ubik comes in a burned pinewood box, with a 30ml ink bottle of an beautiful exclusive anthracite grey, created by l'Artisan Pastelier (Califolio inks), for this LImited Edition.
The contrast between the box and the Ubik is striking:
- one represents sturdiness, strengh, robstness, the other utterly sober elegance. However, these contrasts are, in fact, the caracteristics of the Ubik altogether.
The Ubik is "dressed" in an elegant black material, and Matthieu keeps the secret it, which increases the mistery attached to this pen.
The roll stopper is a watch winder, coordonated with the 18K gold Bock XF nib (you can chose between Gold, Steel and Titanium nibs - all Bock).
As the eponymous book, the Ubik creates surprise, amazement, wondering. The Ubik is an enigma: it looks like wood, it sounds like wood while beeing uncaped, but... no, it is not wood.
The touching of this pen is a ravishing one, and our fingers remember it even once we have put the Ubik to rest: a powedered touch, amazingly soft, undetectable, and above suspicion, when you look at it.
Length - when closed - 13,20cm
Length - when opened, nib included - 12, 40cm
Cap's length - 6 cm
Nib's length - 2, 30 cm

Meet the 01/20 of the Original Ubik - Limited Edition, by Matthieu Faivet.
The Ubik's crash test video Matthieu has done with no special effects, or tricks. Here is the proof of how much the Ubik - The Original Limited Edition can take.
DISCLAIMER - I HAVE NO COMMERCIAL INTEREST, I AM ONLY A HAPPY CLIENT. THANK YOU

Das leben ist wie ein Perpetuum Mobile mit ein Mangel..... Immer im Bewegung jedoch nicht unendlich. (life is like a troubled Perpetuum Mobile ever moving but not for ever)
Tricked throughout the centuries...
For centuries people had been tricked by kings & "religion-alism"
In the 20th century people got tricked by communism
