I received this pen in my monthly Collector box and am delighted with it. The thing is huge and has a big fat (1.5mm) stub nib. I have large hands with a touch of arthritis and find this Maiora extraordinarily comfortable to hold, either posted or unposted. The grip is especially well-sculpted. While the 1.5mm stub nib might seem extreme, it has very rounded shoulders that allow it to write very smoothly and rather more finely than one might expect. I have recently discovered that I like stubs and am greatly enjoying this one. If you like big, heavy pens, this could be for you.
