Looks like a new model. At least, I wasn't aware of it.

Unfortunately, another small nib, possibly another branded Schmidt FH-241 with a K1 converter.

Liking the brown / copper finish. Similar to the 823, the color of the body makes the gold trims less pronounced in my opinion.

Yes. It reminds me also of the shape of the Monteverde Giant Sequoia.

Just received my green one today. The color scheme reminds me of the green urushi from Nakaya. I ordered it after watching chrisrap52s review on YT. It is exactly as he described. Pretty stunned by the finish of the pen. Performance is exactly what you would expect of a smooth Chinese EF - nail.

I swapped in a FPR flex nib. It fits, but starvation came in after 1/3 page. If anyone had success with other more interesting nibs please share your experience.

At $20, this pen is a great deal. I am thinking about getting the brown one as well! Bought it through Bobby at his Etsy store. I noticed that other vendors are now charging $35 for it.

Also got mine from Bobby at Etsy.

 It came with an additional Fuliwen M nib. What a transformation! For 1/2 a page I thought I had just about the perfect pen. Then it stopped writing.

 

I can't really get on with the EF nail. If anyone finds a medium nib or nib-unit that fits and doesn't die of starvation every half page, I would love to know.

 

Rumour has it that the Delike #5 nib-units fit it but I haven't been able to get hold of one
