So how is the pen holding up almost two months later?


In a nutshell: excellent. Not a scratch on the barrel. Not a scratch on the section. Cap still fits securely (my little wood glue mod is holding up). Ink flow is consistent and generous. Nib is very nice, making me forget what it is made of. No, it isn’t as feathery as my Leonardo nibs, but it’s a very good nib that is far superior to the nib in the Visconti van Gogh and even to some gold nibs in my small collection. One drawback: the cap seal could’ve been better; after a day or two of non-use, the ink will have dried on the nib. One quick wipe with a paper towel and it’s fixed, but that shouldn’t be necesary. I can still very much recommend this pen, but obviously I’ve got only one pen and that’s not much to base statistics on :-) .

That sounds like an amazing nib!

I just got this pen in abalone green.  It is beautiful, and the nib is spectacular. Also the cap on mine doesn't rattle at all.

I have the Neptune Blue. Yes, the cap can spin but everything else about this pen is great. The section is not slippery at all -- and this is after a week of using to draft a new novel during a writers retreat. I'm impressed.

I think what they can do is to engineer a c-clip that would enable to lock the magnet in place

I would have yet to find a Italian pen that speaks to me or perhaps its because their barrier of entry is steep
