In the box there were two beer coasters, a pad of Conid engineering paper and the wonderful metal case with the pen and it's tools. My first impression is the size, it is big! I like big pens, but this one seems really heavy. I also have one of the Aurora Sigaros which is a HEAVY pen and I like the feel of it, but the Conid just seems different. It could be that I have been writing with Nakayas recently so it seems really heavy compared to the Nakayas. This is an Engineers pen, everything about it is precise and perfectly designed. The Engineer in in me is totally in love with the design! I have not filled it yet, I am waiting for a new ink to christen it (Organic Solutions Edgar Allen Poe Red), but I dipped it in my trusty bottle of Momji and wrote a bit. what was really interesting was how much lighter the ink appeared than with my Medium Nakaya I was using on the page. It was about two shades lighter. I tried it on another ink and it also came out lighter. Still undecided on this pen, it a fantastic machine, but feels "different" in my hand.
