Thick ebonite walls provide the hand with a warm wood like feeling and give the pen a protective encasement. Cared for, this pen can easily last a couple of hundred years and has the potential to be an heirloom. Most size 6 nibs can be fitted and should work well in the Milano. Size 6 offerings from Jowo and Bock seem particularly well suited for this design. The beauty of its friction fit threaded insert will not be lost on those who notice its suitability for calligraphy.
