This steel nib is a 1.1 mm stub. It has a single slit, a crescent-shaped breather hole, and no tipping. The nib is engraved with the Conklin logo, and Toledo USA. It's an appropriately-sized nib for the pen - it doesn't look too small or large.
I hate this clip. Not only do I dislike the design (it's very generic), it's also pretty much useless. It is so stiff, I can't even lift it. Sliding it on to more than page? Nope. A shirt pocket? Definitely not. I struggle with it in a pen pouch. Not a fan.
Unposted, I find the pen comfortable enough in hand. I wish I could grip a little closer to the nib than the section comfortably allows, but I guess that's more of a section issue. Or me-grip issue. But maybe it isn't entirely - the desire to grip lower is to have better control of the pen. It's a good length and diameter for most hands, I think. The balance is closer to the front.
The cap can be posted by friction if you like posting. I was disappointed to find it only sat on the end plug, and not deeply to provide better balance. Posted, the pen is very long, and top heavy. The balance was then weighted towards the back, so either way, unposted or posted, the balance was not ideal for me. Unposted is more comfortable for me, though.
I think the best thing about this particular model is the pretty finish, and the stub nib. I don't find the model all that comfortable in hand, so it is not one of my favorites, despite the pretty. Stay tuned for a giveaway of this pen!
