Otto Hutt Design 04 Ruthenium Floral Fountain Pen
Beautiful But Disappointing Nib
This is a gorgeous pen, and I was absolutely prepared to love it. As I began to write, however, I was horrified. The nib provided is much too broad for my taste. The only option on this site is a medium. I have had other medium nibs, and they were quite acceptable. This one is so broad, it makes me feel like a child with a thick crayon! I am so upset. This was an extravagant purchase, and I don't think I can keep it like this. With this nib my writing is murky.
The pen itself is lovely, and the function of the nib is excellent - no misses or skips right out of the box. I really wish they gave the customer a choice.

This is a totally awesome pen. It is beautiful, it writes like silk (better than a rollerball) and absolutely no drips, missed lines (up or down); and makes you pround every time you take it out of your pocket.
I have recently become a convert to fountain pens -- they make you write better, you have to think about what you say, and the good ones are amazing pieces of workmanship. Within minutes of getting this pen, it became a highlight of my small collection. I am a heavy pen user and use these as day-to-day pens, and I would not hesitate to recommend this pen to anyone.
My only issue is that they don't offer a fine point, and it would be nice to have one of each.
