This is going to be a short and sweet review of this somewhat diffcult describe pen. I like Red. I prefer bright Red. So this pen was a no brainer. The pen itself has classic looks which will never go out of fashion. It is available in other shades like Black, White and Taupe(?). But I knew I wanted Red. It is a difficult shade of Red to qualify. I had to pump up the vividness of the images to get close to the brightness. But still it is just an approximation of the actual shade. I got this pen originally with a broad nib which turned out to be a mistake. It is a wet writer. And strokes were too thick. So it was just lying there while I was busy with life. Then on EBay I found "Mr Missing-Pen" selling the fine nib. His English leaves something to be desired but he makes up for that by putting a packet of Gummy Bears in the parcel. The pen is rather small. Which was kind of a surprise. But then it fits in the hands very well. The fine nib is really very very smooth but with just a hint of deep growl. If that is the right word for it. Because I am not going to use the words Toothy or Scratchy. That will be blasphemy. Though the traditional shades like Black are timeless, but I will suggest go for this Red if you are buying it.
