It's a flex pen at a fairly cheap price, it is quite smelly, though, because of the material it used, but it's acceptable for me. The nib is pretty stiff so would need to push it harder to get it into flex as steel nibs are always stiffer compared to gold nibs. Also, the nib and feed part might require some adjustments to get it write smoothly without railroad, and heat setting it, too. Overall it's a flex pen at a reasonable price and I would definitely recommend it to the newbies who want to step into the world of flex pen as their first pen. Last but not least, just push it to its limit but just don't overdo it, it's a great pen to mess around with,
and if you're using some colourful inks on it your hands will look colourful as well.
Smooth, wet writer. Clip a bit flimsy for my liking though
Smooth, wet writer and some subtle feedback. A certain distinct smell on the body however. Do wash it first as there is some residue of machining oil on the item.
