The steel nib is fine with a single slit and a breather hole. It is marked with Iridium Point Germany and has some flourishes.
With pressure, there was a fair amount of line variation possible, and the feed kept up quite well. That was fun and surprising.
The Chibi is the kind of plastic I enjoy the feeling of in hand. The clip worries me a little - I have not broken it but I might one day, of course. There is a small lanyard hole in the clip that is convenient, especially given the size of the pen. The clip is springy, but I was pretty careful when playing around with it.
The pen felt fine in terms of its weight when unposted. It's obviously a small pen though, so for those with larger hands, it will probably be too small. The cap posted by friction and it was nice and secure. I preferred using the pen posted since it was a more comfortable length.
I can see this pen not being a favorite for those with large hands, but it's still pretty usable when posted.
This is a pretty cute fountain pen. At this price, it's great to get you to the $25 free shipping mark, it's a cute little gift, it's a decent pen to learn/experiment with, but the nib could use some smoothing. Even so, for $2.95, it's hard to complain, isn't it?
