This pen writes like a dream! It‚Äôs on the larger side, but it still fits nicely in my hands (which are average sized for males). The 21k nib is so smooth. It‚Äôs one of the smoothest nibs I own. The medium nib is the perfect combination between a fine line, and a line that shows off the ink‚Äôs properties. Highly, highly recommended. I was concerned that the grey wouldn‚Äôt be as dark as it appeared in the pictures online, but I was pleasantly surprised. The pictures really do capture the pen‚Äôs color tone.
