The comfort grip around the barrel is too squishy -- it tends to make my writing sloppier, even though it is very comfortable.

Writes beautifully and smoothly. It's slightly heavier than the Safari, which makes this just about perfect. The graphite coloring makes it feel professional, and it's a very solid construction.

The nib tends to be a tad messy using the converter cartridge, but still writes nice and smoothly.

It is very shiny, and has a nice solid weight.

The nib, however, is a very cheap stainless steel nib (it's labeled "Iridium Point Germany", which, as I've heard, means it's actually Chinese, and designed to be misleading). The flow tends to be pretty poor, with lots of skipping.

Be sure to check the nib when you get it. I somehow received the bold nib version of this (even though the box clearly says "EX FINE"). The bold version has a "B" on the nib, whereas the extra fine has "EF" on the nib.
