    Fine - The beautifully designed two-tone Sheaffer's Triumph nib in very nice condition with clear imprints and ample tipping material. This black beauty writes a nice fine line, it was a tad on the dryer side with my ink choice, otherwise it was a joy to write with during its ink test.  A photo of the ink test is included for reference.
