Well I cannot change your opinion but I would say that the resin does feel a bit brittle-ish. I think its all about the wonderful nib here.

 

Brittleish sounds about right, heh. I'm not too scared of the resin developing any cracks, though. It just feels slightly cheaper than what I expected.

 

That's pretty much the only real negative thing I can think of. And well, in my case, both nibs were misaligned. But other than that, a really beautiful and reliable pen! One of my absolute favorites.

Thank you! Buy them from J Subculture. 83 shipped via EMS without any problems. I cannot for the love of my life figure out any valid reason as to why pen companies charge more for plating with rhodium, ruthenium, rose gold etc. Its the same electro-plating process as gold (to the best of my knowledge). They should learn from Aurora. They charge lesser for their chrome trim.

 

You're right! And I've bought from them before, with zero issues.
