NIB & PERFORMANCE
I inked the pen with Montblanc Toffee Brown, obviously. It took awhile for the feed to become saturated with enough ink for the ink to flow to my tastes. What is unique about this nib is Taccia actually claims it is a flexible steel nib, and I do find it offers a pretty significant amount of line variation and the ink flow keeps up pretty well. Not bad for not being a "real" flex pen.
PROS & CONS
This is a beautiful pen, and while I have many pens at this point, I was drawn to this pen based on its appearance alone. I was most pleased to find the pen is not only beautiful, but that it's comfortable and easy to write with as well. The nib is also really nice; good line variation, good ink flow, just a touch of feedback. To top it off, it comes with a fantastic leather zippered case. Sold.
