For the price, it's amazing. While it is a little weird that they made it so
much longer than a Safari, much of the basic layout is pure
Safari/All-Star/Vista. In fact, everything from the barrel threads forward is
basically Safari. Balance is good, nib is SMOOTH. This is my first italic nib,
so I was seeing occasionally some skipping when I first started a letter. Then
I realized that I wasn't holding it square to the paper (and the nib wasn't
centered on the feed).
This pen's nib really made my writing much more legible when I write cursive.
I have terrible writing and every bit helps. Feed/Flow is excellent with J.
Herbin Perle Noire ink. I tried this nib on my Safari loaded with Bay State
Blue, and it was awesome on that, too. I want to get all the Lamy nibs now!
This pen is a killer, killer bargain at the JetPens price. Converter included!!
