I purchased the Fine nib. Great looking pen good and a good weight but it has some design flaws. The pen leaks excessively from the nib when I place it down, some ink droplets splatter on my papers or desk. The cover does not have a snug fit on the top of the pen. As a result I had to return my pen.
Maybe I am used to my Lamy safari EF nib and Kaweco sport EF nib fountain pens.

I love this pen. It writes really smooth and had good weight to it. After using it for a couple weeks now, I like it more each day. My hand slips on the plastic grip section sometimes, but if you grip good enough, it won't be problem. Copper finish looks and feels great. This pens scream at me "write more" and so I do...

This is one of my most precious pens that I use, the fine nib works all right for me, because the ink flows so smoothly, it's nice to write on. Because of how it is designed, the pen is a little bit heavy, but it works just fine for me.

I have this pen with a medium nib and it's a most pleasant one, which is the best feature of this pen. I believe the nibs are made by Schmidt. The brushed finish on my barrel is uneven which is slightly disappointing and the cap does not thread on smoothly. The grip section is rather slippery which is somewhat annoying. I like the looks of the pen and really enjoy its nib, but it feels rather cheaply made for the price.
