The material of the pen is gorgeous. The caramel colored chunks of acrylic really stand out bright from the black, and the shape and size are super confrotable. Plus the golden colored accents area really classy. I ordered it with a flex steel nib to try the nib. The nib is ok, a little feedbacky, but it can be swaped for any other Jowo #6 nib. But it is not a problem. This fountain pen is in my top three of the most beautiful and of the most comfortable I have.
