Very nice pen! The fit, finish, and appearance of this pen are all great. It
feels right, posted or not. The ink flows freely and evenly. If I haven't used
this pen in a while, it will take a couple of attempts to get the ink to flow,
but once it starts, it puts down an even, consistent line. The nib writes well
from most angles. For a medium nib, it writes a bit wider than I would prefer,
but this is subjective.

Nice pen, but with some issues. The pen is attractive, and the clear window in
the mid-section allows me to see the color of ink and how much is left. The
converter works well, and the pen uses standard cartridges. This pen is
advertised as having a medium nib, but I found it to be closer to a fine nib.
Now for some things that aren't so great. The clip is slightly crooked. I
doubt highly that I did this because I rarely use the clip (I can only recall
using it once), and since it's pretty sturdy, it would take some force to move
it, and I'm sure I didn't hit it that hard. This is cosmetic and not a big
deal. My primary complaint is the intermittent ink flow. In the morning when I
use the pen, it takes a while to get started. If it's been a couple of days
since I used the pen (such as on Monday morning), it takes a bit more effort to
get the ink flowing. Eventually the flow will be acceptable, but even then it
will still occasionally skip, then catch up with a little spurt of ink. I've
taken a lot of time to clean the pen and take good care of it, but it's just not
a pen I can trust to be reliable or to write consistently.
