But I dislike the pen itself, plastic is cheap and the cap keeps cross threading. Does anyone know, is the nib friction fit?

Everything else looks fine. The pen has a good build q

To be clear, I define “flagship” as follows: A “flagship” pen is a regular production model (i.e., not a limited or special edition), which is generally the largest, most expensive, and most visibly advertised item in a brand’s inventory. Where no single pen satisfies all the criteria, a judgment call may have to be made on what (if any) product is the “flagship” for a particular brand. Obvi
