SBRE Brown used in his review - Akkerman Chinatown Red. It just seemed to make sense!
Ignoring the nib, I did find the pen shape, weight, and balance to be quite comfortable. It's not a very heavy pen, being resin, so it was nice to write with in that regard. Since it writes so reliably, there was no need for a death grip or pressing hard on the paper, which made it even more comfortable to write with.
Well, I have mixed feelings about this pen. I'm not a huge fan of hard nibs, so it didn't win me over in the nib department, although it did write well. The pen itself is comfortable and lightweight. It's also not the style and design of pen that would attract my attention. I was disappointed by the excessive amount of packaging, the fact that Delta did not provide a converter, and by the wobbly clip. I'm willing to forgive the hard because others like hard nibs, I just happen to prefer softer nibs, broads, and stubs. I suspect a stub fusion nib would have been a much more enjoyable experience for me.
