It's a nice shade of orange (though a bit lighter than I expected), not a lot of shade but there's a plenty of silver shimmer in there, which makes it a fun ink to write with, especially in a wide nib. I don't use it in expensive pens as the shimmer particles tend to stick around in the feed. The bottle is beautiful, as always with J. Herbin shimmer inks (I often keep one on my desk at work, because I'm a show-off) and the opening is large enough to accommodate piston-fillers such as TWSBI pens.
The Traveler's Notebook system means I can finally get rid of always dragging three (or more) separate notebooks with me. It's easy to add inserts and create the set-up that works best for me personally. The leather is gorgeous and it comes with a thorough explanation of how to keep it in good shape. I do think it's a bit pricy, and it comes with only one insert (blank). I immediately ordered a bunch of refills, spare bands and a repair kit so I could properly use my TN. Overall it's a great product though and I've been very happy using it over the past few weeks.
These are beautiful understated nibs that fit my Leonardo Momento Zero perfectly. (They also fit other Bock #6 sized feed / collar units)
They arrived packaged well and worked well immediately.
These steel nibs aren’t rigid nails but have a slight amount of give or bounce to them. They have become my favorite steel nibs to write with.
These Leonardo Nibs are very well made, easy to fit and add much to the overall attractiveness and appeal of their fountain pen products.
The nibs perform extremely well and are both smooth and tactile instruments to use, providing just the right amount of feedback.
The stub nib is multi-directional, allowing an easily controlled variation to line width. This feature greatly adds to the individual "expression" that can be revealed within ones handwriting.
Overall an excellent product for a very reasonable price and highly recommended.
