Sorry, forgot to add...

Sorry, forgot to add that other reviewers were right: this pen may need a brief
breaking-in period before it writes smoothly (as is true of many fountain pens).
Initially, I thought the pen wrote a bit dry and scratchy. I put it aside. Wrote
a few more times a few days later. After writing the equivalent of a page over
several days, I suddenly realized the pen was feeling very good to use -- it was
writing very smoothly! My point is, don't judge any new fountain pen too
