The rose gold trims at end of the body & section looks really nice. Its very aesthetically pleasing. The pen is large but its very very well balanced , you will love writing with it. The section tapers a bit,its very nice to hold.The piston mechanism works flawlessly & compliments this great design.The material is very very colorful & you will get compliments wherever you carry this pen.

It offers a bit line variation too. This pen is very wet & I enjoy writing with it. The red feed compliments the design well.
    Conclusion-*Amazing Pen , This pen is just amazing in all aspects. You will enjoy writing it. If you are looking a good acrylic pen & have the budget you can go for this pen. I am sure you will not be disappointed. Leonardo & Carolina Pen Company both have done a great job in this pen.

    Brooks' acrylics and alumilite mixes are undoubtedly some of the best out there (hoping to find something on the secondary market myself). As for the Leonardo Grande... well, in my view it suffers from the same design issue that the more expensive Pelikan pens have - a metal band at the ink end of the section. It's an area of corrosion waiting to happen. (I've heard it happens, not how often, but it deters me from getting interested in buying). I think the non-Grande design is better in this respect.

    Anyway, as a visual piece of art, your pen certainly looks like the bee's knees.
