I love that red ink in the O3B nib. It's eye-popping.


FYI, it's Iroshizuku Momiji ink by Pilot. They've got a rather fantastic range of colours, and my first bottle as well.

@Ghost Plane - I thought of you as soon as I tried this nib out... 'wow', was my proceeding thought!

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

Dear bsodmike: as I often noted that your tastes for pens and mines are really quite similar, it was not strange to see that after thinking a lot (and making numbers) about that same pen, YOU bought it! Congratulations! The pen itself is a real beauty, and the uncommon nib make her still more special. Use it in good health.

Thanks zemof! I'll post the same image here for the rest of our TFPN friends to see as well. Hope I don't give GP too much of a shock Posted Image (sadly, I can't find an emote for 'hug')

Right to left: O3B nib 75th Anniversary 149 in Rose Gold Limited Edition of 1,924 pcs, 149 with O3B nib, 149 with B-nib, 149 UNICEF Helmut Jahn LE of 4,810 pcs made in 2005 with OB-nib, 149 from 1980's with 14C nib with long tines.

I'm planning on parting with the 149 UNICEF Helmut Jahn LE to make room for at least one more 139/149 type FP.
