NIB & PERFORMANCE
My pen arrived with a broad steel Schmidt nib. To read about how this nib performed, check out my review of the KarasKustoms INK. I swapped the #5 nib for a steel broad italic from my Italix Parson's Essential. Great nib, and it made this pen even more fun!
The clip is tight, so it's hard to put it in pockets and pouches. It's also a very heavy pen, so putting it in pockets is probably not very feasible anyway. The angle at the end does make it easy to slide on to things though, ignoring the weight of the pen. It fits really well in my Nock Co. Lookout (cotton candy case).
The section, although short, is comfortable. I like the pinched shape. I find it a little thin, but it isn't too thin that I cannot use it comfortably during longer writing sessions. The threads are sharp and a little rough, but I do not grip them.
The copper won't be for everyone - it's very heavy, has copper texture, and it smells like pennies. I really like this model, a I already own the Render K - the very first KarasKustoms pen I picked up from Kickstarter - so I am a fan. It's not as large as the INK fountain pen, and it fits well next to the Render K - one gel pen, one fountain pen, always a perfect pair!
