good to know such details. I was on the look out for this pen but somehow never got the urge to actually go buy one. One of the thing I am keenly aware of is that the Mfr's philosophy of having a 1s grade nib but 3rd grade assembly sounds to me a bit on the over the top wishful thinking ... even the best nib cannot function alone and your experience kind of reflect the situation I would say. Fro all the user comments its certainly not a bad pen but as you've put it - does not seem to be better than ...

 

That's really true....the nib isn't everything that makes a pen great. I great nib with a mediocre feed makes for a mediocre pen.
