I did a mini-review of the new Moonman T1 in brass, over at Instagram, if anyone is interested:

In short, it's an impressive pen! Nib seems to be friction fit though.

 

I got mine from Ebay.

Probably best to buy the original by fine writing instruments with a good nib rather than the junky moonman one

Is this the love-child of a Wing-Sung 698 and a Delike Alpha? Or a Brass Kaweco Sport & a W.S. 698?

I'll stick with my Delike that I have been abusing as a work pen. The only bad thing wit the Delike was that it came with an untipped F nib that was scratchy as hell. Soon fixed with a #5 Jinhao nib  from a Jinhao 500. I think i'll give this one a miss. Thank you very much.

Here is the pen compared to two FWI pens: The 3rd Gen Bronze Age, and the Wagner 2019 model with urushi:
