This Dunhill is fitted with a Solid 18K gold wing nib mounted on ebonite feed. Stamped with Dunhill and 750. The iridium tipping is in excellent condition with the point measuring .66mm when measured with digital calipers - a medium nib point. When writing the sample in the listing images, the NIB writes with a medium stroke/line variation. The medium line measures roughly .60mm to .68mm with medium to firm pressure when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample provided was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue-Black Ink. The nib writes very smoothly - a pleasure to write with.

The Fountain Pen uses an Ink Converter that works perfectly in my tests. The Ballpoint Pen has been fitted with the new refill and is also writing perfectly.

These Dunhill Gemline Writing Instruments made by Montblanc are high-quality pieces that writes most excellent. I would consider this Alfred Dunhill Set to easily grade in Excellent+ Condition. Each pen is in ready to write condition or just add it to your writing arsenal collection.
