Great pen, very well made and substantial. Although somewhat heavy, the weight
is distributed towards the nib. The nib is extremely smooth with good
flow--definitely broader than most fine nibs, but not unmanageable. My only
complaint is that although the end of the mechanism seems to be air-tight, the
clip-retraction feature allows air into the body of the pen, drying out the nib.
Left for a day or two unused, and the nib will be dry and takes a second to
start writing. WARNING: This is no big deal for most inks, but I would never
use this pen with Sailor or Platinum pigment-based inks. Because air can get
into the body of the pen, the pigment ink will clog the nib.
