I was drawn to this pen because it came in my favorite color combination (pink and turquoise blue) and because I am a sucker for pearly resin/acrylic pens with lots of "swirl." You never know if these kinds of pens are going to be heavy or light. This one is on the lightweight side and is not a bulky pen, but not tiny, either, just a nice size. The cap posts snugly, and the pearlescent finish is far more evident in person than as photographed. I am super happy with the nib--it's a biggun' with a good feed. I love that it comes with a converter and works with standard converters and cartridges that are easy to find. I was thrilled to find out that these are handcrafted from a small business in Ohio! (Made in the USA!) I love it when a craftsman can find a market and compete with the "Big Boys"! Well done, Edison, and thank you, Truphae for connecting me!
