I ordered a 5-pact of these. The first one I tried wrote too dry for my taste, so I pulled the nib and widened the nib slit. Had to pull it four times to finally get enough ink flow for my taste. The nib cannot be pulled with the fingers, but requires the use of needle-nosed pliers and a cushion of course (old rag).
It is a rather pretty pen, and very light weight as I prefer for hours of writing. The cap jewel unscrews and releases the clip; one of the 5 pens had the cap loose, but it was easy to screw it back on. The converter unscrews into two parts, and it is easy to unscrew by mistake on filling; one rotates the piston, NOT the whole converter, which will disassemble it.
The perçoir de cartouche or cartidge nozzle is very delicate; it broke when I first pulled the nib. But since I don't much like cartridges, that was no real problem. It did not affect the ink flow.
Personally I think I would prefer the F nib to the EF.
The ring between the section and barrel is indeed entirely loose, uncommon nowadays, but more or less standard on vintage pens.

Oh by the way, does anyone know of a source for the F nib for this pen in quantity? Do any of the Jinhao nibs for insatnce fit it? The nib is very short, with unusual flanges on the bottom that hold it exactly in the position recommended by the manufacturer atop the feed.
