This pen was packaged in a rectangular box. Outside, there was a white sleeve marked with Staedtler. Inside, there was a box held shut by an elastic. The box is engraved with Staedtler Premium Initium. Inside, the pen sits in a felt nest. That can be removed to reveal a box of cartridges, and the paperwork to go with your pen. Simple packaging, and I like that a whole box of cartridges came with it, instead of just a single cartridge. More bang for your buck!
NIB & PERFORMANCE
The clip is lovely - it's designed to sit very close to the cap, so it doesn't stick out too far. I like how that looks on this pen. It's quite springy and easy to use. Great clip!
The section is slightly thin for my tastes and I found it a little slippery as well, because the weight of the pen behind it pushed it forward as I wrote. It was still usable because of the lip before the nib, so that was the saving grave for me when it comes to the section.
