5 of 5 1911S / Medium Nib May 27, 2016
Reviewer: Victor Zak from Regina, SK Canada  
The more I use this pen, the more I'm liking it.

1. the pen's a bit smaller than what I was used to. It's still usable and with time, getting to feel more familiar. Unposted, it's about 4 mm shorter (117 mm) than a Pelikan M200 if you have any experience with that pen. I don't post my pens. If you do, then size likely won't be an issue (148 mm posted).
2. initially I was surprised how toothy it was. I don't notice it as much now. I'm not sure if some rough edges have smoothed out with use (about a month), if I'm just getting used to the feel or maybe holding the pen a bit differently.
3. but the pen feels like a precision instrument, like a sharp knife (in a good way). I don't think I've ever used a pen where I feel so much control over what it does and how I want to do it.  Part of that is the nib and part I think of the balance and weight of the pen.
4. wetness is perfect for me, maybe a 6 or 7 of 10. Gives a crisp, bold line with no sloppiness.

Overall, a great pen.
