There are only the lightest signs of use to these pens, they are near perfect examples.
The 18k Nib is an absolute pleasure to write with, it is mediumn, with a little springyness to it. A very responsive pen, the feed keeps up well and offers a nice wet line. A superb piece of craftsmanship from Montegrappa, truly a beauty of a writer.
