Narwhal’s Schuylkill model follows about a year after the successful introduction of the original models. At its introduction the Schuylkill only comes in a swirled blue-black-silver. Like it’s predecessor the new pen is a piston fill, with the addition of a clear visualization ring situated at the threaded area of the barrel. Measurements of the pens are about the same: 145mm total, 131 mm for the barrel alone. The fine nib is actually more of a medium, but a fine line can be achieved by inverting the nib as one writes. The cap (15 mm in diameter) can’t really be posted because of a ring at the heel. Forcing it onto the heel might result in cracking the lip of the cap. The barrel (13.25 mm) is comfortable in the hand and light enough not to tire the writer. The piston moves freely and can draw slightly over 4 ml of ink into the barrel, more than enough to last for an hour of writing. An excellent choice for anyone on the fountain pen user spectrum.
