Estie is a winner!
I had only modest expectations for this pen, given that it's mid--priced and has a steel nib. Usually, I only purchase gold nibs. But I was very pleasantly surprised when I gave this pen a try. From the first stroke, it has written buttery smooth. And it feels good in my hand as well; the section is smooth and does not cut into my fingers like some other, more expensive pens. The bottom line is that this pen outperforms some of my more expensive pens. It has quickly become a great favorite of mine.
