A perfect combination of elegance and practicality, the Super5 pen truly lives up to its name. The 1mm nib is lightly flexible and very smooth for a fountain pen; it won't scratch or bind on the page. The ink feed is as smooth as the nib and flows evenly without skipping or blotting. German made, this pen is precisely balanced. The barrel and cap are practical plastic, and the grip and clip are painted metal for durable performance over time.
