Ever since I saw this pen I really liked the looks of it ..

I also thought it might make for a decent eye dropper mod . ( Will try later ) 

 

The thing that strikes me the most , is just how hard this pen writes .. Like a steel rod - or more aptly a knitting needle ... It really feels rigid and hard ..

Also it's some what scratchy - runs on the dry side and lays ink down like a ball point pen . ( ok maybe thats not all bad ) .

 

  The pen feels very unyielding and there is no sweet spot as such . ( Not that I found )  

Will definitely hit the 5000 grit wet and dry when it gets here .. ( Haven't found any local ) ...

Dont want to use anything more course with such a fine NIB .  

I will play more with this pen in the future ..

 

Started easy ..

No leaks - no burps - 

After 24 hours actually lay down a little more ink .. ( Dirty NIB ? )  

Runs on the dry side 

Very scratchy - no sweat spot
