1/28/16: Arrived this afternoon, 39 days after ordering. A very long wait. The pen arrived in a nice case — the nicest I’ve seen thus far. I used the converter and loaded it with Diamine Eclipse. It started slowly. Needed a shake. Even flow once started. This fine nib is thin and slightly wet, just what I’m looking for in a fine. On art paper, it felt scratchy. On steno paper, it was much smoother with slight feedback.
