This pen has classic...
This pen has classic styling, solid construction, and decent heft. It feels good in the hand and writes smoothly with no delay or skipping. I similarly enjoyed the less expensive Kaweco Student but found the metal grip to be a bit slick. The Dia2 is definitely a cut above the Student in style and construction. The grip is acrylic which affords a much surer hold. Aesthetically, I prefer the chrome fittings, but I found the gold-plated nib to be just slightly smoother. It can be purchased at Jet Pens. I enjoy the Fine nib. For me it has just the right smoothness and thickness of line. (It is right between the Japanese Fine and Medium nibs). This is a great looking and writing pen that will last a lifetime. In looks, performance, and construction, I place it in the same field as the far more expensive, classic fountain pens.
