Very impressed with this pen. I like it more than the Koloro in part because it has a larger #6 nib. The pen does not post which concerned me at first. I tend to post my pens mainly because I prefer larger pens and posting gives me a bit more to hold on to. But rest assured the pen is plenty large without the cap. Feels great to write with.

Let’s start with the bad stuff:
...
Okay, now that we have that out of the way...
The good stuff:
This pen looks amazing, the flow is wet but never leaky, the vacuum seal is great for travel, the clip slips easily over fabric but still holds tight, the nib writes smooth with no skips, the grip section is big and not slippery (my wife has small hands and still loves it).

I’ve had this pen for about 2 months and would recommend it to anyone!

I love, love, love this pen. It has turned into my EDC because it is a solid pen, bulk filler without the drips and drama. I swapped the nib for a titanium nim and this baby is my everything. I am a fiction writer and while I type a lot, handwriting is a daily activity for me for creative reasons.

This pen is solid and while large, it is very comfortable for me. I have smaller hands, 6" wrist even for a plus sized girl and my hand does not cramp with this pen like it does with other pens. The material is usually warm and comfortable feeling. The valve is exactly what I have been missing from every eyedropper pen I've tried. This seriously makes the word of difference for ink flow and no drips. It holds an ample amount of ink and I have nothing bad to say about this pen.

The Good: Looks great, especially with a barrel load of bright ink. Nib is buttery smooth, even on poor quality paper.
The Bad: Too big to be a pocket pen (although I knew that going in). 4 1/2 turns to get the cap off (also known before purchase). Nib seems to scratch up inner of cap (wasn't aware of that). Not a big deal, but such a pretty pen soon looks a little, well, used.

Overall, a great pen for the price, with fantastic service from Pen Chalet (Less than a week from placing order to inking up, all the way down here in Australia!!!)

After the first writing with this pen for an hour, I'm convinced that this is my next ‘on the go pen’.

I love this pen. It is a Japanese style ED with a shut off valve (similar to the Namiki Emperors but at a fraction of the price), so it holds a lot of ink and you can travel with it without worrying about leakage/burping. It uses a #6 Jowo nib which is very smooth (I got the fine nib) and should be exchangeable with other Jowo nibs (Edison, Goulet, etc.) It is a large pen, bigger than my Pelikan M800 but comfortable to use. The clear demonstrator design is fun too especially if you fill it with a colorful ink like Apache sunset.

What an awesome pen! Big! Cap will not post, and the nib should have been a black one. Everything eslse is perfect. Fit and finish is great. Flow of ink is excellent. The shut off valve tames the eyedropper beast. I really like this one.

Improves on the superb regular Koloro in almost every way. Has a big, wet, #6 nib, and a bigger, smoother body.
It loses a point in functionality because the cap can't be posted. But a pen this large doesn't need to be posted anyway.
It can hold lots of ink without the dreaded eyedropper burp issues.
Overall, with a collection now exceeding 150 pens,this is one of my favorites.
