Schneider's award winning iD fountain pen has a rather unique profile that sets it apart from most fountain pens. The first thing you will notice is the over sized cap with it's over sized pocket clip. Despite it's radical appearance, it's full sized pen at 148mm capped and medium weight at 27g. Take the cap off and it's weight drops to 15.5g and it's big enough to write with without the cap. It's perfect if you like a big pen but don't like a heavy pen.
The Schneider iD has an ergonomically designed, rubberised hand grip with a finger stop that your index finger seems to naturally rest on. There is a flat section beneath for the supporting finger and your fingers seem to naturally seek out the best position to hold it. It's a very comfortable pen to hold with it's light weight and ergonomic, rubberised hand grip and feels like it will be very comfortable for long writing sessions.
The cap is covered with the same rubberised material as the hand grip and the pocket clip works very well despite it's large and unusual design. The pocket clip also has a loop for a lanyard which is a practical and unexpected feature. The barrel and cap are translucent black ABS plastic and the pocket clip is chrome plated steel.
One stand out feature of the iD is the way the cap posts. The cap slides onto the barrel with the feel of a pneumatic piston. 32mm of the barrel goes into the cap making it very secure when posted. The barrel has a rubberised end cap which fits into the cap very precisely, going in with noticeable air resistance. If you pull the cap off quickly it makes a very satisfying popping noise. If you post the cap just be sure to have the pocket clip on the top so it doesn't rest on your hand.
The nib is polished stainless steel and, like the rest of the pen, is Made in Germany by Schneider.
