I am happy to see this simple blue pen back in the rotation. It was my cheapest purchase of 2018, and my delight with it way outweighs its cost.

This nib arrived in my collection for Christmas 2010 with the Pelikan M415 Tortoiseshell Brown has just clocked up eight years in my possession. It is a lovely wet writing European fine nib - set that way by the vendor Richard Binder.

Noodler’s 54th Massachusetts is very nice blue-black ink that leans to the black side. Unlike quite a few of my Noodler’s blue-blacks, this one doesn’t seem to feather. I get some good shading from the wet fine nib and some very faint red sheen on the heavy sections.
