I just got my bull and it does have a relatively small nib, but something about the pen is just fascinating and I don't think the #5 nib looks out of place. This also needs to be held against the cost of a JoWo #5 gold nib, which will run you about $75-100 alone, so these pens are kind of a screaming deal.
Something about the design is just cool. it can be posted and is specifically designed to do so, but the pen becomes weirdly long, and it's a perfect length unposted.
My problem is that the stub was over smoothed, completely rounded over on both tines and the baby's bottom that resulted makes the pen almost refuse to write. I called Vanness and he was really surprised, since Bexley have pretty famously good nibs. He's going to get back to me today regarding sending me a new nib and returning the old one. In the meantime it'll be using a delike XXF #5 steel nib.
I love the box it comes in, small, elegant, velvet lined with a cool notecard in the lid that explains the history of the design.
