The Beauty is in the “Understatement” The Value is in the Delight of using it.
I’ve been looking for this pen ever since the “Fountain Pen” frenzy remerged in me.
I wish i had bought 10 of these instead of the whole pile of $50-$125 range pens ( except Benu’s Benu’s are likewise hidden treasure) that have disappointed me in one form or another.
Things worth noting:
Nib is subline closest thing to perfect of any gold or steel nib i have ranging up to 225 dollars. I reach for it and it statifies better than my MB.
I performs well on tomoe river, Graphilo, Paper with tooth and copy paper.
( Except for my Favorite Benu and a vintage 70’s pen my Curidas is a favorite in a weird way) .
The pen feels solid it clicks it posts, it doesnt leak, sleek metal right form of heavy/ light. .. small/big.. tactile/ substance in functionality of grip...and clip is flawless without grandstanding.
....I just wish i could find a soulmate with this much right.
