Nice pen--worth about $25. Yet another rip-off pen from your good buddies at MD. If you know pens, you know better than to buy 'em here!

Don't know which fantasy Google or eBay you access... the "deals" all use lovely unbranded "premium iridium nib". Of course, in your fascinating everyone must be ripping me off world, maybe they're just as good as Jowo nibs.

So buy a Jowo nib for the kit pens you find on eBay—it’s not much of an upgrade, but as long as you don’t over pay for it, it can’t hurt. Good source for upgrade nibs: Goulet Pens.
Better yet, find my post titled: “Buy This Orange Pen”—you’ll save a lot of money (and learn a bit too ;- )

And another thing--I'm sick of Missoulaians stealing all our pen jobs! I propose a total ban on all Missoula pens until our government figures out what the hell is going on!

Is the pen heavy? I'm really bad at conceptualizing weight measurements, so I'd love a comparison with, say, a pilot metropolitan. I've got pretty gnarly hand pain, so I need to know if this pen is too heavy before I spend that much on it.

I wouldn't say it's too heavy, once you get into the 50+ grams is when it get's heavy, but I wouldn't say it's very light either.

Beautiful... I can't justify buying it this month... but since the drop extends into next month that may be a loophole... 💸

This is an absolutely gorgeous pen. Love that it has a JoWo nib, too. And comes with a converter.

Any way to see samples of fine vs. medium nib?

Can the nib be changed? Does it follow a particular size?

Yes, the nib is #5 JoWo so there are lot of good options (e.g., Franklin Christoph's #5 nibs) to swap in other nibs.

F-C uses Bock nibs, IIRC, so you might not be able to swap. But Goulet nibs (and many others) are Jowo.

beautiful... Just got into fountain pens, so I can't put the money on this yet... a shame, because it is so pretty.

A nice intermediate pen is the Faber-Castell Loom. Writes better than most in my collection, and can be found occasionally on MD.

I recently picked up a Pelikan m200 in smokey quartz. That was a good buy. A bit of flex on the nib, and a joy to write with.

I know nothing about pens. Would this be OK for a daily carry/use pen?

Would you say it's suitable for people with abnormally large hands and fingers? I have massive hands and find a lot of pens (granted, I've never used a fountain oen) too small.

Not sure on that. I have never received a return or complaint about the grip not working well with large hands so you are probably good. I think it depends more on how you tend to grip the pen versus the size of your hands. The pen has a reasonable diameter at just over 1/2" so I don't think you would face the problem of it being too thin.
