2/27/16: Currently, this is the best pen in my collection considering both appearance and performance. It’s about an inch shorter than the standard pen, which means posting when writing. It posts perfectly in terms of balance and aesthetics. It has all the traits that I value: clear demonstrator, screw-on cap and posting, fine wet nib with consistent flow, smooth writing with a hint of feedback. Needless to say, no hardstarting and no skipping. It’s good to look at and feels great in the hand. It makes other pens, exspecially the Twsbi Eco, feel big and awkward. The piston filler design is visually pleasing and means a lot of ink even in a short pen.
