This is one of my favorite pen designs, though I don't appreciate some of the color schemes offered.
It's odd, the colour choices really don't match the sophistication of the pen.
I like the orange one best, and that's the one already bought.
I like the champagne and teal shop-exclusive limited editions are both lovely, but sorely tempted by them as I may be, I just can't bring myself to buy at the asking prices, especially from US retailers that don't offer free shipping to Australia past some arbitrary order value threshold.
The brown and the black ones are quite nice too.
... I find the nib 'blobby' and wider than one might expect for the grade.
What do other owners think?
Not in the case of my Diplomat Aero.

As always: 1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment. 2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published. 3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.
