The M320 Pearl Special Edition is a fairly recent addition to my collection only being in my possession for 13 months. This pen was released on the market in 2011 and is the only one of the M320 pens where the blind cap is not black.
A broad nib in such a small pen does not make a lot of sense but this nib works perfectly, you just have to write slightly larger.
Noodler's La Couleur Royale is one of my earlier inks having been in my collection since March 2011. It is a pretty straight up and down royal purple with a nice amount of shading from this broad nib. There was no sheen to be seen on this 52gsm Tomoe River sample.
