I opted for the 14k F nib for this pen. I am not sure if it is my writing angle or just my luck, the nib and feed is a little misaligned like my Delta The Journal fountain pen. It doesn’t affect the writing experience as far as I can tell. The nib writes like a true fine nib and it is rather stiff. Personally I prefer my nibs to be on the stiffer side. It aids in quick writing and works better with my writing style. If you are looking for a juicy, flexy nib you are barking up the wrong tree. Personally, I find the nib lacking in character but there is a stub nib option is available with an additional fee. In terms of balance between the size of the nib and the body of the pen, the nib does looked a little on the small side but I got the pen at a good price so I can’t complain.
A flagship Delta fountain pen with a 14K gold nib at an excellent price what’s there to complain about? The piston knob clutch is an interesting feature that I wished that all piston filler pens come standard with. Though the balance is slightly off for me, this is a well made pen with a nib that writes well for my style. If you can find one for a good price, get it. I wouldn’t recommend paying full retail price for it though.
