This is a beautifully finished and functioning fountain pen. I have a few
fountain pens in my collection, including a Pelikan Souveran 800, an ST Dupont
Black Laquer Orpheo. I also have a Namiki Sterling Dragon. I have several Namiki
Vanishing Points (an original from the 60s as well as several newer ones). Once
Namiki/Pilot went to 18k nibs for their retractable fountain pens, the writing
quality became much better. Having used my Silver Capless Fermo for about a
month now, I have to admit it writes as smoothly as any pen I've owned. It's
also beautifully and substantiallly constructed. I write with a very light
touch, so I've always favored smaller nibs. Previously, I found Vanishing Point
fine nibs to be a little too fine and rough, but this is fantastic. Any fountain
pen aficionado needs to own one of these.
