    Wow, they look at least cool, thanks for the link

    But I would never could justify myself such a price.
    Clearly paying the price for a designer piece, not with respect to the writing device excellence.

    Metal grips. Sadly not for me.

    I also do not prefer metal sections. Only a handful of pens that I would consider with metal sections such as Graf von Faber-Castell pens.

    When I go metal, I go minimal:

    and that when Truth and Error have fair Play, the former is always an overmatch for the latter."

    I have a couple of Kaweco aluminium Sport pens and I genuinely don't notice they have metal sections when I write with them, but I try to not buy any pens with metal sections.

    +1 on the Montblanc Noblesse. I used to own one. Although I don't usually enjoy fine nibs, my Noblesse had a wonderfully smooth and generous fine nib. I'd still be using the pen except that the barrel's black enamel surface began flaking off. (Was told that this is a far from unknown problem with that enamel finish.) Obviously not a problem with an all-metal barrel.

    The metal section was perfectly all right to hold. But the roughened surface that prevented it from being too slick in my fingers picked up ink in its many tiny recesses, so that I needed to be assiduous about wiping the section clean after dipping it into an ink bottle.

    I think they look ugly. I wouldn’t pay 1% of the asking price for them.
