This is my first pen review so forgive any mistakes on my part. This pen was bought as part of the group buy in fpn for model 5. When i decided to buy this pen I wanted a big fountain pen.But what came to my hands was an absolute giant. The dimensions given were right but I expected something as big as say a gama Brahmaputra what I got dwarfs it by miles. APPEARANCE AND CONSTRUCTION(9/10) This pen is made out of matt black Ebonite.Despite having an understated appearancee it has an imposing presence. The cap is flush with the barrel so no seam lines and no clip as nothing will fit this! The Ebonite is nice to touch and has a distinct fell unlike acrylic. The material does has some pits outside but overall finish is very good. BALANCE AND FILING SYSTEM(9/10) The pen is light enough for its size but still has a certain heft. It has a wonderful balance. Even relatively smaller hands can handle its weight with ease. The only little problem can be the thickness of the grip section which should be thinner for smaller hands. The pen is not recommended to be posted for obvious reasons (SIZE). The filling system is eyedropper. Simple and holds about 4-5ml of ink which is a lot. Due to the thick material used the balance is not disturbed when full.(weight of ink won't significantly change overall weight) NIB AND PERFORMANCE (5/10(Earlier)) (8/10(presently)) The nib is ambitious 35mm nib it wrote well out the box and no problems of skipping etc then why the low score? It would dry after a page or so then after some agitation start writing again then the same after few more pages. I tried everything on my side. Following advice from Mr Hari317 I did some adjusting after which it wrote again but only upto 5 pages then dried out again. Dejected with the experience I asked Mr Kandan what to do. He suggested to do a cc conversion. He responded very promptly but as a last resort I tried one thing. I took a Swiss knife and opened the small section hole in the back of the section. Then following Mr watch-art's advice I washed it with a cleaning solution. The pen wrote well but.....it was dripping ink like crazy. The I realised the feed was not set deep enough into the section after setting it deeper and heat setting the feed I inked it up and VOILA the problem is gone!! My pen now writes a wonderful fine wet line with ample smoothness and hasn't burped yet. The flow is also very good. CONCLUSION (9/10) This is a well built pen. Despite its muted appearance it is a conversation starter and has a imposing place on my desk. Even if the initial experience was a bit sour now it is every bit worth the money. I recommend it to everyone but if you want a completely hassle free experience go for the 3 in 1 filler version as it can offer more flexibility of use. As of me I am very much happy with this muted giant.
