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.
