I love the nib on this...

I love the nib on this pen! Its smooth - not quite as smooth as my Prera - but
exceptionally smooth for the price point. It's quite impressive considering how
fine a line the pen puts down. If I were only rating the nib it woudl be a
five-star pen, easily.
The asthetics are good and understated. The cap is nice and it posts and caps
securly with a very satisfying click. The converter that ifts this pen is a
little expensive relative to its price so I used the Sailor ink cartridges. As
I am a fan of blue-black inks, I was happy with the offerings from Sailor.
The problem is the plastic body. I know plenty of good fountain pens use
plastic bodies but this one is exceptionally cheap feeling. On top of that,
mine has cracked under very light use, which was extremely disappointing. I'd
happily pay a little more for this pen if Sailor would use a more robust plastic
or if they would make an all aluminum version.
