This is my first Otto Hutt fountain pen and I am very impressed. I have written with hundreds of fountain pens over my years of trading and collecting them and this pen is a great value for the price. I ordered a F nib and it writes perfectly, smooth as silk and the nib is stiff enough to hold the F ink flow nicely.
If this is your price range, you simply cannot go wrong with this pen!
Received my 04 Wave Rose Gold/Black steel broad nib today.
Right out of the box this pen writes perfectly. I cannot imagine the gold nib could be any better than this stainless steel because it is so smooth and lays down a wet line: it is surprising how good this nib is.
I have a few other pens which have gold nibs and are equally smooth (Waterman Charleston, Platinum President etc), but nothing in my collection is any better than this. Ink flow is perfect too.
The materials and craftsmanship are beyond reproach, the design is elegant, timeless and understated. It ought to come with a pair of white gloves so you don't leave fingerprints all over the beautiful finish!
Well worth the dollars and it has already earned a place at the top-table of my pen collection. Highly recommended.
