I have multiple reviews of Graf von Faber Castell pens and if I remember correctly, I have given all of them five stars. No difference here.
Of all my pens the GvFC classic is one of my favorites. Just picking it up and filling it, my expectations for this pen was off the charts, but this even the expectation of perfection, I was surprised to find that the writing experience for this pen is incredible.
It is a pen that makes you feel that you have used it all your life. The wooden barrel looks and feels warm to the touch and the nib is like all other GvFC nibs which means it is perfect.
Like most European nibs a medium is on the broader side and the fine is a medium fine.
In the end, I would happily use this one pen for the rest of my life. It is that good.
