Also, @essayfaire, you can see that it looks like it should post but it doesn't. I think if it posted it would be badly weighted.,

It always surprises me when pens are poorly-weighted posted.  Seems like bad design, but so does a pen that doesn't post!

The biggest design flaw is how difficult the pen is to uncap.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

So, I finally made it in to the office. Here are my initial handwritten notes.

So, I have confirmed it is a #5 steel Jowo nib.  I really like the nib, I have one in my Franklin Christoph Model #65.  @TheGreatRoe is my enabler.

As for size, the pen is longer than an MB 149, but quite thin.  

 

Here it is with a Pelikan M200, a Montblanc 149, and a Franklin Chrishoph Model #65.

Okay, so while I 100% applaud innovation in pencraft, or pennovation, I have never been wowed by a real India ink. Granted, I’m not a calligrapher, and I don’t find myself needing a pigmented, opaque black ink. I know this answers someone’s odd, pen-related prayers, but I’m not sure I’d even fill that little cap reservoir, because I’d never fill it up with India ink. 
 

Because I don’t like India ink.
 

But I’ve already beaten that inky, dead horse. 

 

But any new pen day is a good day! 👍

@mhphoto I haven't reloaded it again with India inks but what I really like about the pen and the reservoir, is that it does not dry out in Las Vegas.
