This is a pretty pen, but it's pretty garbage. Found one at a local shop with the wrong price tag, and they were willing to honour it at a steep discount. I went through a total of 8 that wouldn't write before giving up. Stood there with the owner of the store trying to get them to work. I think 2 did work, but felt like someone dropped their metropolitan on a concrete floor. I eventually gave up and went with a cheaper Pelikan, which felt great out of the box.
I highly suggest giving this a pass. I don't think a company that is willing to put out pens that often won't even work for these prices should be supported. My bet is that all the youtube and pro reviewers get cherry picked samples. Additionally, I bought a Rembrandt from them a few years ago, and it has stopping problems even after getting a replacement. I want to sell it and buy something good, but I would feel bad about offloading it on someone that may not know the horrors of Visconti.
If you absolutely must have one, send it to a nibsmith before you even open the box. Otherwise you may be spoiled by the fact that it performs far worse than any cheap Chinese $10 pen. Alternatively, just buy a Sailor, Pilot, Pelikan, etc. that will actually feel great.
p.s. the cap's locking system sucks. It basically just pops off, yet is a bit of a pain to remove the correct way. Compare that to the Pilot prera which feels like a pen orgasm to cap and uncap.
