The steel nib is a good size, but there ends the "good". Although it is fairly smooth on my standard Clairefontaine test paper, it is a completely unacceptable non-starter. Even freshly filled and dipped, the nib skips and writes dry. Each time the nib is picked up from the paper it reverts to not writing. Of all the steel nibs I have used -- including Lamy, Pelikan, Monteverde, Parker, Waterman, and TWSBI -- this is by far the worst.
Verdict: a disappointing performance from an otherwise well-made pen.
