One of my favorite pens in the collection. My family got me one for Christmas. They write pretty well out of the box, but a little nib tune-up doesn’t hurt. They are a little dry, but the feed can send a lot of ink to the nib if you flatten the bit (which I did), and turn even a fine point into a juicy, wet-writing ink cannon. If you want a high-dollar name brand that’s somewhat affordable and still retains the quality behind the name, this is a great choice. Maybe not for everyday carry, depending on your budget.
