Well I watched it now...nice review! I am seriously un-attracted to the pen's design, but WHOA that was some serious flex!!! And what, for 4 bucks(the price of the flex nib alone I think)? Very, very nice!
Thanks for the review!

It's a worthy attempt at a Pelikan NN design, even if it doesn't quite make it...

Yes, but it is just a bit too mishapen in my opinion.

Let me tell you ... from a writing standpoint its a great pen... Is the fit and finish perfect... no.

But man did I push that pen. I mean i rubbed the damn feed from pressing so hard. And I just thought of this now... I did not spring that nib at all. I did not smooth it or anything. It was right out of the box, fresh from India.

I did not measure the ink capacity but I will.. I know its not a lot for a piston filler but I got a couple pages out of it and still have ink in it.. and thats with flexing the crap out of it.

It just seems like it wouldn't have been that hard to make the ink chamber bigger.

I know... it doesn't make much sense at all...

I still want one...

Mr Brown, shootout between this and the Noodler's Nib Creaper?

That would be an intersting one for sure. How 'bout the Dilli vs. the Ahab as well?

A quadruple shootout would be nice ahab, creaper, namiki falcon and the dilli!

Don't forget the Serwex MB.

Very nice I won 8 serwex pens from him and love them. I think I will order a pen from him. Does anyone have experience with the inks he sells? Mainly concerned with feathering and luke shading.
