Looks like a copy of a Kaweco Sport with minor modifications. But so does the Ixion.

That does resemble an ixion. Is a lovely pen.

 

What material/type of metal is that? Looks like an anodized aluminum.

According to the auction it's aluminum alloy.

PenBBS exclusively uses #6 sized nibs, so based on sizing I don't really think it's all that close to a Kaweco Sport.

well its on retail shelf online, it said Aluminum, surprise surprise, it include an interchangeable rollerball housing ; this is going to be interesting , that might be a good candidate for making a matched pair

Holy... This looks very much like Ixion! I have one but if this is lighter and have a #6 nib I'd be interested in it..

All PenBBS pens use #6 nibs, but they're a touch shorter than those from makers like Bock or Jowo and don't always swap cleanly.

I'm curious about what the weight is as well, especially uncapped.

The aluminum pen weights 22g and the brass one is 58g. I asked them on their Etsy page
