- It has a nice smooth GP steel nib (identical to Pilot 78G's nib unit) available in F or M widths.
- It is an ED filler and holds a decent amount of Ink.
- Has a reliable slip cap making the pen easy to cap and uncap, ideal for taking notes.
- Has a great supple clip which can be used over any fabric.
The pens capped, the filling instructions are at the back. I noticed at the shop that the pens come packed in a cardboard 10 pen tray with one instruction sheet for each pen.
The pen uncapped and disassembled:
The transparent part at the end of the section is actually an insert. This component acts as an O-ring for preventing ink leaks and also probably facilitates drain back of the ink from the feeder spaces back into the ink reservoir when the pen is held upright. Though I have not tried, I am pretty sure the transparent seal can be pulled off and a cartridge/converter used in this pen since the cartridge piercer is very much present in the section.
The nib is of a very fine quality, I have a few of these pens that are now twenty years old, I find that the plating tends to fade away a bit after long use.
The nib slit is perfectly aligned with the feed channel
The clip IMHO is stylish and very supple.
The cap jewel:
I don't see this pen mentioned often here on FPN, I hope other members can add their experiences with this pen.
