Duke Silver Ring:
I really like the feel of this pen. The nib is probably somewhere between fine and medium. The one I have writes very smooth and is balance with the cap posted or not. It really is a classy looking pen in person and I do enjoy writing with it as much as how it looks on my desk or pocket.
Duke Charlie Chaplin Tribute:
I really dig the feel of this pen and it writes as smooth as â€śbuttaâ€ť. The only complaint I have about this pen is the cap weighs at least 2x's the weight of the pen without the cap on. It is well balanced with the cap posted but I don't see how it would be comfortable using this for long writing sessions. But the Pen is very well balanced and comfortable without the cap on and is quite effortless when putting ink to paper. I would say this pen is a fine to medium nib. I use this exclusively as a desk pen, I just don't see how anyone would want to have this bring clipped to there pocket. With all that said it really is worth the money. Its a fun and different pen for anyone's collection.
I just love the way this pen looks and feels. The picture does it no justice. It is a well balanced pen posted or not. It also is around fine to medium and is a pleasure to have in your pocket. The one I received probably needs a little breaking in, or is just a dry writer. I am using Parker Quink in black. I look forward to trying a different ink with this pen, I have read on the forum that Quink can be a bit dry in some pens. I love the look of this pen so much I think I am going to purchase the rollerball version of this pen.
