Great weight, great feel and one of the finest (yet smooth) lines that I've found in a fountain pen. The line is fine enough to dry almost immediately, which is why I ended up getting one as a gift for a left handed friend of mine. Normally, fountain pens are useless to him because he pulls his hand through the ink as he writes, smudging everything. He has no such problems with the cavalier.

Solid, good looking,...
Solid, good looking, and feels great in the hand. It's definitely a thin barrel, but whether that's good or bad is obviously a matter of taste, not size. The idea that just because I'm over 6 feet tall I should want a bulky pen is just weird to me.

As a bonus, as much as I dig the super-fine nibs, these take any pilot ink you can fine. I've loaded these up with cartridges from G2s and from retractable precise V5s and they fit perfectly. Net result is that this pen looks good, feels good and is very versatile.

I haven't had any problem with noise, and the size, comfort and writing ability of this pen are all quite fantastic. However, the wooden body ends up being a real strike against it. The pen feels cheap in the hand, and it easily picks up small nicks and dings. This is not the kind of pen I'm inclined to baby, and I'm skeptical of the lifespan of this one

It's as cool as it looks. Solid action, comfortable grip and it writes well. Slight counterintuitive that the retraction only can be done with the clip, but it's easy enough to adapt (and a smooth enough mechanism) that that's not really a problem.

Bulkier than it looks....
Verified Purchase
Bulkier than it looks. Not bad if you want a thick barrel, but definitely more than i expected looking at it. Click action feels a little loose, but the pen writes well enough. Decent material, but it took less than two days of use for the barrel to start looking dirty (though it seems to clean easily). So all in all, a good pen, but probably a bit overpriced.
