The weight, feel and look of this pen are solid. The nib looks very futuristic
and caught my daughters attention. I loaded it with Bernanke blue noodlers ink
for quick drying (being a lefty). I found the fine nib near the 0.7 mm line
thickness, which is near fine in my considerations. But when I am writing the
intial spot on a letter it leaves a small dot. It happens on great, good and
even worse on poor paper. I have a picture comparing the same words to a preppy
fountain pen and there is a big difference in the quality of my words on paper.
I like the pen but I wouldn't give it as a gift to a first time fountain pen
user. I will use it but not as an every day pen like my Pilots, TWSBI, or Kaweco
pens. I think a 3.5 star rating is more appropriate but looks shouldn't outweigh
the reason for the purchase.
