Moonman M100 (Dark Rose)

Many Mooman pens are close copies of other pens, but it has been suggested that the M100 (and the M2) are original designs. Though that may be true, just as many Chinese pens follow the generic ‘cigar shaped’ pens, so this pen follows the ‘torpedo’ shape first introduced in 1929 with the Sheaffer Balance.

I particularly like the design of the acrylic resin which reminds me very much of my vintage Conway Stewarts, in particular the No. 15. This pen was supplied with a fine Schmidt nib, but I exchanged this for a Beaufort/Bock medium #5 nib.
