+ The nib is becoming gradually softer, bouncier, more feathery, and hence is showing more wonderfully subtle line width variation. Its sort of verging on semi-flex territory and I love that. Its my only non-vintage pen that offers me this.
+ The beauty of the design continues to impress, without fail. I dont get used to it. It doesnt fade. Visconti really hit it out of the park with this one.
+ For longer sessions and/or for those who have larger hands, the cap posts very securely and when posted the pen has more length than youll ever need. Surprisingly, it doesnt become too back-heavy; instead, the extra weight of the cap seems to push down on the nib and boosts the wonderfully subtle line width variation.
/ Sometimes (and only sometimes), there seems to be an air bubble somewhere in the pen that trpas the ink and impedes its flow. A gentle tap against the section solves this, e.g. with a wooden pencil.
/ The ridges of the cap lock mechanism sometimes bother me when I write, but to be fair most pens have something that bothers me.
/ The cap lock mechanism, though ingenious and beautiful, is not secure. Put this pen anywhere on your body and sooner rather than later the cap will come off.
/ Having the Midi, frantic bouts of Pen Acquisition Syndrome invariably hit me whenever I see a nice, full-size Lava Bronze... Restraint is required.
