the weight is 48.4g with cap, and 37.0g for the pen alone.
uncapping can be done in 1-3/4 turns, and the nib would extend when turning the knob at the end for 3/4 turn. after the nib is completely extended, pull out the knob by around 2mm and turn the knob to operate the piston. the piston cannot be operated when the nib is not fully extended.
