I find myself strangely drawn to that kit too. Can't think why.

As a novice with limited experience and ample desire, I can tell you that the Mistral is well balanced in the hand, your nib is perfectly tuned, and the classic look of the components lends itself to a style that is simple and elegant.

If I had to choose one kit to use for the rest of my life, this would be it. You have yourself a winner, Mr. Dart.

Thanks for your extremely kind words Ankur - needless to say I'm delighted you like it
