Part of her mystery was how she is calm in the storm and anxious in the quiet. This is a pretty large pen, and is a little larger than the Le Grand 146. With an 18k nib, it writes smooth with some level of softness. It is a pen probably made for bigger hands and one has to ignore the finger prints unless using the pen with a glove on the hand that writes. It’s a rare piece I guess and what a joy to be writing with one. The weight distribution is perfect and is not too heavy to hold when unposted. Do you like big pens?
