It turned out to be a great buy for $20 USD (including box and papers), especially since I believe it was uninked. Thank you Ron
It's a beautiful yellow, almost a citrine colour, with silvery trim. The pen is just the right weight for my hand. Its smooth steel nib has a bit of "tooth" and a hint of flex, and it lays down a nice wet line.
I almost passed on this great buy because of all the horrible things I had read online about the True Writer......Things like postings problems, flow "issues", convertors that threatened to fall off, loose nibs,etc. so needless to say I was extremely prejudiced against the poor thing before I even had a chance to try one out!
Now, I don't know if these problems will develop in the future with my particular pen; if they do, I will certainly post about them here In the meantime, I am truly enjoying using my True Writer.
