Great review, Fabienne. I've just received mine with a broad nib in the carbon fiber finish and it is a great writer for the price.

 

You are spot on about the weight being concentrated at the back of the pen, throwing the balance way back. I'd like to add that the broad nib isn't the broadest out there (mine is comparable to my broad TWSBI 580).

 

Also, when flushing the pen I prefer unscrewing the nib unit and flushing it directly to prevent water getting trapped in the grip section. When filling from a bottle, ink tends to get trapped in the grooves of the rubber grip but that can be cleaned out pretty easily. The only annoyance is that ink gets trapped between the nib unit and grip section, which can lead to inky fingers once in awhile. I don't mind it but if you do, you can always fill the converter directly instead.

hi. i have the one with leather barrel and the balance is just right, even with the cap posted on the back -it just looks too long (weird!). it's become my every day pen.

 

thx for the review!

I got a basic (carbon fiber) to check out the nib, and then bought an Onodoro, which I love. (Not as heavy either). But the one thing I do not like about the basic is that the rubber has a distinct odor, which I really do not like. It writes beautifully, as long as I do not get too close to the pen.
