NIB & PERFORMANCE
The large nib is a fine, two-tone #6 steel nib. It has a single slit and a breather hole. It's engraved with Iridium Point and some flourishes. Pretty simple, and it's a good size for the pen. Anything smaller would probably look funny.
For such a fine nib, it was pretty wet. Drying times were around 30 seconds, and I did not find the feed running dry during longer writer sessions. it also did not hard start or skip while writing. With some pressure, there was some line variation possible.

The clip is pretty much impossible for me to use. It's so tight, I just could not move it.
There's no doubt this is a ridiculous, girthy, huge pen. I found the section fairly uncomfortable because it's so wide, and the lip at the end is really hard and dug into my fingertips.
The huge ink capacity is great, unless you like to change inks often. It's a great way to use up those ink samples though,as it holds 6 ml. Just pour that entire vial of ink right into the barrel!
At $44, this is not the most expensive pen. However, it's not all that inexpensive either. It's really neat, I love that it's a huge, clear eyedropper that takes #6 nibs. It's a lot of fun, but not for everyone given the size! I can't wait to put a juicy stub nib on this.
I received this pen free of charge, but was not asked to review it. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion. There are no affiliate links in this review.
