I'm glad to hear that a lot of people have had great experiences with this pen.
Unfortunately, I have not.
PROS: The pen has a very elegant design, and everything seems to be very well
manufactured regarding tolerances. The piston filler body is easy to use, and if
needed can be somewhat straightforward when disassembling for cleaning &
maintenance/storage. The weight is also right on par with my preference. I enjoy
pens that don't have that "plastic appearance", but I also do not necessarily
care for a really heavy pen. This pen (along with my Lamy 2000 rollerball), are
my go-to pens for dress shirts, as they don't weigh down the pockets, and the
pocket clip can spring open with the press of a button.
CONS: The nib is really hit or miss. I've used the Extra Fine (EF), Fine (F),
and now about to move to Medium (M) because of how constantly disappointed I've
been with how "scratchy" the pen is. The worst part of this pen is the recent
issue I've had, which may have just been a "lemon" with regards to quality
control standards; the pens body has a hairline crack along the reservoir
window. I discovered this after finding ink on my hand nearly every time I used
the pen. I thought the cap may have been dirty, so I cleaned it and the issue
persisted. I hadn't dropped the pen or anything, but it did go a while without
use and was left clean and free of ink in storage.
CONCLUSION: Aesthetically, it hits the mark. Functionally and reliably though,
it leaves me on the hunt for something else.
