It is a Piston fill pen with a fine nib. Make that Extra Fine. Very smooth for such a fine nib. The window is great and the piston makes it even better. Just arrived to me from Mumbai.

Very Sith. Congratulations on another addition to your collection.
I like the way part of the window is exposed with the cap on.
How does the fine tip write ?

Bogon! Good to see you post aster a couple of weeks. :) The fine nib, while not my favorite, really is fun to use. I am not sure what it is about it but it works really well with my 1st gen Rhodia Webbie. Here is another shot with it filled.

The little sliver of the ink window with the cap on looks good with the blue ink. You'll have to make sure you fill it with colours other than black or black/blue...... bright violet or green would also enhance the look.

Well, the only green I have just looks black in my TWSBI's and Lamy Vista. Maybe a red ink would look good. I don't have any.

Isn't that green a dark EbonyGreen ? I was thinking of a lighter green or maybe a turquoise.

No red ink in your collection !!!!!!!

Yup, The same PR Ebony Green. Lightest I have would be PR Tropical Blue I think. Nope, no reds at all.
