Diplomat Magnum Demo Orange Fountain Pen
This translucent orange resin Magnum fountain pen is one of Diplomat̥s most affordable offerings. The special no-slip lacquer gives the body a soft touch, and it has an ergonomic grip section. It comes equipped with a smooth writing JoWo stainless steel nib, shiny chrome trim, and fills via standard international cartridge/mini converter (cartridge included).
Note: The Diplomat Magnum is gradually transitioning from matte to polished nibs. What you receive may be different than what is pictured here.

This is my 2nd Diplomat Magnum. My first one was the burned red and is a great writer. Unfortunately, the color on the body is starting to wear off. I added this Demo Orange based on the great nib the first one had. This one is great as well, and I like the uniform color (unlike the black section on my other Magnum). The plastic feels on the cheap side, esp with the opaque one, I wish Diplomat would make these pens with a better/more substantial body so it wouldn't feel so cheap - it's a great pen otherwise.
Also, my first order of Truphae - very happy, plan to order again.
