The fluorescent pink is VERY fluorescent. All the images I've seen do not capture it. Know this! The extra fine nib is not a great extra fine. I have the medium bib as well - it's a nice good flowing medium steel nib. Tested with included idyllic blue cartridge. The step between section and body is noticeable if you care about that. This is a perfect office and meeting pen for me. Fit and finish and snap cap, clip are perfect.

I love the look of this pen! It reminds me of when I was a child and looked at some of my grandpa's old (ballpoint) pens from the 70's, 80's! I definitely got it for its aesthetic value and I was curious about the brand.

I got an EF nib and it seems like the tines are a touch off, resulting in a writing experience that isn't the greatest. I prefer writing with it unposted and the weight seems fine for me. The section is a bit narrow.

For looks alone, I want to get all the colors but the quality has me wondering if this is the best choice. I am a somewhat economical shopper.

I really love this pen - I got the yellow one, which pops quite a bit but is still very professional looking (so I can take it to meetings without feeling out of place). I love the way it writes - my pens need to work and write a lot and this one can - I got a converter and it holds the ink well. Love this pen!

FIRST IMPRESSIONS!

Box open (Box is nothing too extraordinary, but functional).

It IS thin.

It’s long too.

But I like that look; a sort of industrial meets traditional. Yep, looks fine so far.

7/10

APPEARANCE AND DESIGN
If you like the 849 ball point, you will like the look of its fountain pen bigger cousin.

It’s the same design – just a little wider and a little longer.

It’s still slender for a fountain pen; and I’m not yet sure how it will go for long sessions; however, it has some nice features and remains an attractive writing vehicle.
