I just received this pen and it’s immediately become my favorite. This is a rather heavy pen, the quality and feel of a solid pen come through right on picking it up. It’s well balanced and writes beautifully. The cap posts solidly unlike some of my other Montegrappas. I picked up the 1.1 snub which provides a smooth beautiful stroke without laying down too much ink. ( doesn’t run through at all when writing in a moleskine notebook ). I can’t possibly say enough good things about it. I loved it so much I immediately purchased the same pen in the other HP house colors to complete the set.
