I purchased the medium nib. This is a wonderful pen! It has a surprising amount of weight but it is not bad (I use this pen unposted). It has handled the few times I've dropped it well (cap on, luckily). It is a very smooth writer. I found my shipment to be very well packed and Truphae has excellent customer service and the handwritten note is a very nice touch.
Awesome seller! 2nd purchase from them!!
