This is my very first Pineider and there will be more . It is an amazing pen ! It feels like writing on a cloud , or as some have said “a hot knife gliding through butter “ . The nib has a bit of flex and I have a M , and I really like that does put down a nice amount of ink , and the ink I’m using (J Herbin ) , dries quickly even on mediocre paper . No smearing , or feathering. This pen has a very nice weight and length , and is so comfortable, even for lengthy use , either posted or not . Then on to the appearance ~ the brilliant colors make it like a festival right at hand . I looked over several that were in store , and each one of them was a little different, and all beautiful. Mine has brilliant blues, green, yellow, red orange , red and even a touch of purple . The colors are layered yet transparent. It has a magnetic closure and it is fun to watch it snap close , and align its colors perfectly. My only ‘regret’ was not buying it sooner . Highly recommend this pen .
