After about 2 weeks of use, the nibs were smushed. Perhaps it was faulty, but
both the 0.05 and 0.1 I ordered came with extremely short nibs. There is a
little silver part that holds the tip and attaches to the plastic white barrel,
and within the first week, it fell out of the barrel. I was able to put it back
temporarily, but they were repeatedly loosened and left in the cap. I would only
give this one star, but for the short time it did actually write, it wrote
beautifully. Except for when the tip started to bend at an angle... Will be
going back to fountain pens for the time being.
Looks: FAvORITE. Compared to all the shorter, stouter Lamys and Parkers, the
long pointed end is wonderful. At first the peach cap was a little off putting,
but it's easy to see. I'm very nitpicky, and I don't like the space between the
cap and the gold band when the pen is capped. Overall design is sleek and
Quality: The pen is very sturdy for the material. The ink is very smooth and
writes well for a normal pen, especially considering the nib is EF.
very happy with this pen
