Very nice! I have a Carina in the Antica color scheme. They're very good at making "resin" look like celluloid, and they're appointed on the level of a $500-$600 range Visconti. Very good bang for the buck with Signum. I'd love to get my hands on a red & yellow Ornamenta. You just can't find 'em anymore, so I guess on missed the boat. Congrats on the purchase!

Had a nice B nib in the grey/yellow combo, but they're a tad too small and light for my preferences, so I sold it along. Nib was great.

Gorgeous pen, thanks for sharing. BTW what ink did you use to write the review? It matches the pen well.

Many thanks for the nice review.
Is the piston knob easy to operate? It seems so small to me... A pity, especially given the good size of the pen.

Thanks,

Andre

edited to change error
actually it was lamy blue and of course the next morning the ink was not nearly so vibrant. Now I am using J Herbin Eclat deSaphir. I would like o see it with Levenger cobalt.
