Next comes my next problem with my particular Pearlette, it was sold with a #5 two-toned stainless steel EF nib by JoWo. However I think the seller might have modded the nib previously. The nib wrote very very dry when it first arrived. I begged a local pen shop for help and they managed to straightened the nib. It improved the flow dramatically but not enough for my liking. I mean it is a simple fix of buying another nib for the pen. However with the grip being the way it is, I think it is rather pointless for me to keep the pen.
The way the pen wrote was no fault of the Pearlette’s design but I just wished the grip section is wider. If it was the same width as the Nakaya Piccolo’s, I think the Pearlette would have been a great alternative to the Piccolo. Of course, I don’t think Edison Pen Company would have to copy the Piccolo’s design without adding their signature touch to it. It is a conundrum but as the Pearlette is now I can say it is not a pen for me.
