This is a very good pen...
This is a very good pen for its price but there are better.
The pen is compact but once you post it, its average length. Very comfortable to write with. Its also very light and the color is pleasing to the eyes.
Extra fine nib writes great if you write at the right angle. If you deviate just a bit, it'll skip the first letter but go right back to writing smoothly. My Lamy fountain pens doesn't do that at all. (By angle, I mean something like 10 degree difference)
Other than that first letter skip at wrong angle, I've had no problem with leaking, skipping or flow issues. It is a great pen and problem is minuscule but I would probably stick to Lamy or keep trying different ones.
It takes international short cartridge so huge plus there. I get to use my J. Herbin cartridges!
Oh and for those of you used to Japanese tiny nibs, this writes more like a fine nib than extra fine.
