Well made, but slightly lacking
The overall finish and feel of this scale and pen is fantastic. It's got a good weight to it, the satin black looks nice, and the scale is easy to read. I like how the pen came with a piston converter, which is a nice touch.
However, here are the downsides. First, the scale is just a bit too short to use on a lot of drawings. A 6" scale would have made quite a bit of difference. Second, you generally want to store your fountain pens nib-side up to keep the ink from coming out. That means you have to balance the top-heavy pen/scale on the back of the pen. The good news is that it is flat so you can do this. However, it they had a better way to store it that would be great.
Overall I'm quite happy with the purchase at the price I got it.
Would recommend to a friend.
