It's been almost 18 months since I feature this Dark Blue and silver trimmed M605 in a post. I mentioned there that this pen came in M405 and M805 sizes and a really really wanted them. Well I can add two more reallys to those because these have become my new grail pens.

It started life as a double broad (BB) but fell into the hands of Daniel Smith and was turned into a 1mm stub by Mike Masuyama. This is one smooth wet nib, it does not have the line variation of some of my cursive italics but it is a lovely writer nevertheless.

Rohrer & Klingner Cassia is a vibrant violet ink that shades very slightly. I had expected more shading from the broad stub but it just isn't there. A lovely colour though.
