Simple, but classic design.
Blue with silver trim. Nice color combinations. I like the monochromatic color scheme offered instead of the usual gold.
Nice classic design. I do like the blue. But a bit thin for my liking. Girth is close to the Parker Frontier or Graf von Faber Castell Grenadilla that I have.
18k M Nib, but writes like a bigger nib. Iím not sure if itís the combination of the ink and the paper, as the ink runs on the paper. So I'm guessing a very wet writer, but a very smooth writer too. Tried the pen again today and realized that the pen has a small flexy nib and I am able to get some good line variations almost to the point of my Pilot Super 300. I was very surprised as I have never noticed this before, but the nib is no where nearly as flexible as the Pilot. I guess the pen writes wet and broad for a reason.
Converter or Cartridge. Box came with a box containing 10 cartridges. The converter is screwed in, so when trying to clean don't pull on it. Turning it will yield much better results.
Cost and Value:
I got it cheap. So I guess the value is pretty good. Comes with a 2 year warranty.
Overall a nice pen, but the nib does worry me as it writes much wider than I expected. Iíll have to experiment and see if itís the paper or a combination of the paper and ink.
* Updated the nib section.
