From a distance, this appears to be a black pen with subtle sparkle, but a closer look reveals a deep plum color with hints of red and blue. The 14K Fude nib has a moderate amount of flex.
Piston-filling and includes the box (the box does show some wear).
The brass base of this pen gives this pen a pleasant weight that is not usually available in this price range. The Rhymestar is a full-sized pen and well-balanced, either posted or not. The upturned nib (Fude nib) allows a greater variation in line width.
