I have atached the links for the review and photos.
For some reason I cannot seem to upload pictures to this board.
Please note that there is a major error in the review:
As you will see from the close up of the number 6 nib, it is not steel but 14 K.

Good review thanks, been eyeing this model up on Ebay for a while.

However, just a word of advice: you may want to watch the spacing a little more carefully when you write "this pen is ...".
Cheers,
Effrafax.

Thanks for posting your review. Actually, it's not that hard to link in external images. You use the button to do it. I'll go ahead and edit your posting for you, though... smile.gif

Oh OH crybaby.gif
I just noticed that the Grance in the photos has Namiki on it. Mine says Pilot. Thus these pictures must not be mine. I thought they looked too good for me to have taken. They were in My documents and I thought that I had stored them there previously. So I know I have hijacked someones photos without permission. Whoever you are I deeply apologize.
