    I have one in silver and the anodized finish on it looks like new. But then, I carry my pens in my shirt pocket or in a slot in my bag.

    My fountain pens are protected,as well--so maybe I'll reconsider taking the leap. Thanks!

    Today's mail call: my first custom. Newton Shinobi with a medium architect grind. Smoke gray translucent body and cap with a translucent lime section. I'm in love.

    I've come to the point where all of my "toys" (car, motorcycle, etc.) are paid for and I don't have a mortgage to pay, yet, so I can splurge on things that make life more enjoyable. This was a gift to myself for my golden birthday (turned 30 on the 30th of October) as well as a bit of a treat for making a rather drastic career change earlier this summer. Gotta enjoy the little things in life...

    I'll take any suggestions you have brother! It's writers pretty good and has medium nib. I hate the ink color tho...will be switching it out. Color is bad on paper IMO.

    madlag I've read you can drop a Franklin Christoph #6 nib into it. Just keep the original feed. I eventually plan on doing the same. recently put a fc in my Karas, & it's 100% better!

    My thoughts about this:
    Its one of thoses typical chinese products that you find in the cheaper sections of the net: blinky designed,professionally constructed,mediocre crafted.The threads have unclean cuts,the Nib says 18KGP,means 18K goldplated,altthough the nib is the same as the Jinhao X450,but without any goldcolored surface,it is just silver.Massive heavy brass body,except the screwdown cap.Decorative silverring around the cap has some play.Not many faults,average-good quality item,of course not that good crafted as one of the cheaper lamys(e.g Safari),but offers more for a less price.
    Too heavy and big for regular EDC.Excellent Price with 4,40Euro.
    I like it as novellity item and a noble Deskpen for the cheapos like me.
    If you get a cheap pocketwatch from the same sources and a notebook,you have a noble but cheap steampunky lineup for EDC.

    I don't mind a big, heavy pen. I like those. I searched the 159 on stores but they don't have it.All I could find was the 250, that I already bought (I'm not a big fan of ordering online from foreign countries). Instead I bought today another cheap no-name one with an all-metal construction.I'm waiting for the cartridge on my Schneider to run out so that I can switch to one of the new ones.
