    A good review of a pen I have been interested in. It's good to see how it writes. Thank you.

    Thank for the review. I'd heard of ranga but they weren't really on my radar. Now they are. That they have such nib options is really cool. I believe Kaweco uses Bock nibs? I was quite impressed with a Dia2 acquired a few months ago.

    It seems like the nib offerings change with the pen build they have at the time. Looks like they have Bock Titanium in F/M/B at the current moment. I think I recall seeing some gold nib options available in the past but I may be not remembering correctly (a more and more common occurrence as the grey matter ossifies)

    Agree with Robert. Your handwriting makes a wonderful use of that 1.1 Italic nib.

    Absolutely delightful review to read. And your perspective on how many turns it takes to unscrew the cap put a smile on my face.
