Default The Shakespeare (and metal threads)

Several have asked about the metal to metal threads with the Shakespeare having had "less than stunning" experience with other metal to metal threaded kits in the past.
I always am annoyed with even some of the finest kits during assembly when screwing the Nib section on and feel that ever so slight "grind" as I screw it on and that ever so slight bit of "slop" until it seats... to the point that I always put a drop of fine lube on the threads, assemble, dis assemble, wipe down and finally re assemble giving the finished pen a much smoother action; all this to say I completely understand the concern. The very first thing I tested after receiving my first Shakespeare was the threading; out of the box I was very pleased with both the precision fit of the threads and the smoothness as it screwed together. No oil, no slop... very precision; excellent. The end user of the pen will also appreciate that there is no "hunting" to find the start point of the thread... it has a very natural feel to it.
