I've been admiring the entire Van Gogh series for a while now, but Pollard Willows had my heart. Anderson emailed me the best price I'd seen so I decided to go for it. They were gracious enough to let me see & choose from what they had in stock, & shipped it out the next day. This resin is just gorgeous. I find myself staring at it every time I write. Pearlescent green and gold, milky honey, transparent wine. Lots of depth. Not only is it eye-catching, the faceted body is nice to hold. Similar size to my Lamy2000. Love the convenience of the magnetic cap which Anderson personalized free w/my initials. I don't really do pen clips, but it's beautiful & spring loaded. The converter supplied holds a good amt of ink. I went with a Broad nib. I've had a couple hard starts here & there, but just a slight bit of pressure & it's off again with no problem. As always, very happy with my purchase from start to finish.
