I love this pen. I find the unique shape and girth very comfortable. The quill nib is smooth, bouncy, and wet. Perfectly balanced when posted. To me the only draw back is the huge box and the heavy book which, while pretty, is in Italian and not full of subject matter I find interesting. Great pen, but I wish they had the option to opt out of the huge presentation for something as minimal as the pen itself.
I stalked this pen for several days and hesitated a bit, but am so glad I went ahead with this addition to my collection! The photos of this carboiridium material don’t do it justice. It’s like a hologram in your hand! The materials are so beautifully married together. When the pen is capped or posted, the seams in the material virtually disappear. It writes like a dream. I can’t take my eyes off of it!
This is a stunning looking pen which writes almost perfectly with a very wet nib. The only faults because of the barrel design it is difficult to turn the piston knob to fill and near the nib again because of the design ink can get between the resin and the metal and you have to clean well after filling otherwise you end up with inky fingers. But I do not regret my purchase at all!
