Tringle:  What nib does that gold Waterman Gentleman have in it?


Does the color of the ink stain on your fingers give others a window into the depth of your soul, or did you just forget to wear gloves?  Unknown.

That is one gorgeous leather cover! I'd love that for my Nanami Paper Tomoe River notepad! Alas, I don't think they have a cover size for an A5 notepad. :(

An actual brand new pen!  I got this Bexley today, and got a free tour of the manufacturing process.

The tour was pretty cool.  It's a small operation, with some large equipment.  I was surprised at the size of the machinery, but you need something durable and precise.  I found that I live only 10 minutes away, too.  This was an eBay offering, and he was nice enough to let me pick it up, in lieu of shipping fees.

Pens used in today's scribbling:

 

 Pens today.jpg
 
On my machine, the pen's can be IDed by their logos/barrel inscription (I know that's not the right term, but the correct one has decided to play hide-and-seek), but I'm not sure about the upload, so, to avoid frustration and eyestrain:
 
Top to bottom: Franklin Christoph Model 66, XF steel nib, Iroshizuku Kon Peki; Stipula Splash, steel (semi-)flex nib, Waterman Serenity Blue; Delta Unica, Goulet Blue LE, fine steel nib, Noodler's Lexington Grey; Kaweco Special, XF steel nib, Kaweco Caramel Brown; Edison Nouveau Premiere, Winter 2014 Edition "Black Ice," XF steel nib, myster grey ink (I'm pretty sure it's Lexington Grey again, but...), and Platinum Preppy, fine steel nib, eyedroppered by yours truly (kinda looks like I underdid the silicone grease, but no leaking so far), Iroshizuku Tsukushi.
 
Apologies again for the image.  I should be working for Disney, with my mickey mouse photographic skills...

Thanks, tringle.

The FC steel broad nibs lay down a slightly thicker line than the Lamy broad, IMO. All are very smooth though. The Lamy medium is so smooth as well and i find it appropriate for marking up documents with red ink.
