This pen is finished in lustrous green metallic finish (its also avail in black)/ The clip is a mix of chrome and gold – its very much like a parker clip with the arrow point removed. The last 20% of the cap is covered in a gold band with an etched flying eagle and the model no “700”. For me this band adds a little too much bling to the look of the pen and I feel it would be better without it.
The nib is a semi hooded affair and writes quite smoothly. The pen is supplied with a removable aeromatic style filler which I have changed to a parker plunger converter as this converter give me a better view on how much ink is loaded.
For $25 plus postage I think this is excellent value. It won’t replace my Pelikans but its seems a reliable skip free writer so it’s a keeper for me.
I got this from Isellpens a month or so ago and its had moderate use thus far.
