I'm a little unclear...

I'm a little unclear about this "gradated lines and mixed colors" business--my
understanding is that you must remove and discard the original color cartridge
before switching colors (they advise against reusing half-full cartridges). I'm
not sure what magic I was expecting, but that's that.
The other caveat is that the 1.5mm nib is 1.5mm--too large to use in daily
correspondence. This are both terribly unfair criticisms, but I thought you
might be interested. I wish the nibs magically mixed colors, and I wish they had
a .5mm nib, but that's not what they were selling.
Aside from that, I heartily agree with everyone--it writes wonderfully well,
both flat along the nib and on the edge (which actually gets a line that's
pretty close to .5mm, come to think of it).
