Hey all. Sorta' new into the pen business and wanted to ask you guys about the EF nib on this one. I have a couple other pens, all F and I thought about getting one EF to practice my calligraphy, so I tried my luck with this one. But it feels bit scratchy and I was wondering if that goes away with time, or is it something specific to EF nibs or just to this pen and it's how it's suppose to be. Thanks much for clarifying me.

All nibs have a sweet spot, the finer the nib, the smaller the sweet spot, so you need to rotate the pen until you find it, unless it really has a scratchy nib; on the other hand while this looks like the same nib used on Safaris and Studios, the ones on my 4 Studios are smoother than on my 7 Vistas (demonstrator Safaris), so they might go through more quality control, as well as on this pen (but I'm speculating since I've never tried an Accent). The advantage of EF nibs on my Studios is that they show certain inks lighter than in other pens, which I like but you'd need to decide about...
Aren't these supposed to come with a converter? I got mine today and it came with a cartridge but no converter

Perhaps you mean the pen doesn't usually come with a converter? This drop is certainly supposed to include a Z27 converter. It says so twice in the description.
If you ordered from this drop and didn't receive a converter you'll need to contact massdrop support and get them to fix you up.
The description says otherwise.
What if I want more than 1 extra grip section? There doesn't seem to be a way to do that without getting another pen as well.
Is it possible to get the aluminium pens with gold nibs? I dont like the black bodies.
Is the leather actual leather, or leather textured plastic?
How does this compare to the Faber Castell Basic, in terms of weight, balance, thickness, etc.? My Basic has a Fine nib and I think it glides wonderfully but when doing schoolwork, the lines are sometimes too thick, is the Extra Fine scratchy as I dont want a scratchy nib?

The Accent is better balanced, especially when posted. Faber Castell nibs generally run wider than Lamy. For instance FC fine is somewhere between Lamy fine and medium. I have a Lamy Lx with an EF nib and it's remarkably smooth. That said, there's no guarantee that the pen you receive isn't a dud. It's rare, but it happens. If you tend to apply pressure when writing I'd suggest avoiding EF in general. Also consider fountain pen friendly paper if your lines are too thick.
Great pen! I’ve owned mine for almost 20 years. It is a good length unposted but posts securely. It is a little similar to the F-C Ambition but has the wider “accent” grip piece. And I like that you refill it by “elevating” the nib and section out of the barrel. Keeps your fingers clean.
