You won't be impressed as I'm currently awaiting a USUS io ballpoint, not sure why - It just spoke to me when my eye's fell upon it !attachicon.gifioorange1.jpg

I have one of these and it is a neat little pen. You'll like it.

My first TWSBIs: a 580AL medium, and a burgundy Classic fine. Plus some Nock Co. cases! A Lookout, and a Brasstown which apparently may have been the last one for now because I see they are currently out of stock  :D

A Reform 1745, NOS, medium nib. Should be here tomorrow. Been thinking about what I'm going to fill it with. A new ink? Perhaps I'll pick up a bottle of Montblanc Royal Blue.

Just ordered a TWSBI Micarta V2 direct from the company ( I think they're the only ones with any left). It will be my first TWSBI and it's more money than than I like but I have really wanted one and figured I should bite before they're gone. Don't know if I should praise or curse PayPal's Bill Me Later feature! I ordered it with a medium nib but also ordered a Goulet 1.1 mm stub for it along with a fistfull of ink samples.

Both companies have agood rep for quick shipment - it will be interesting to see which gets here first!

Regards,

Brian

While waiting for a lovely YongSheng 016 silver wintersweet, I "accidentally" bid on some vintage pens on ebay.  That lot of 4 pens in need of restoration will arrive well before the Chinese pen, which is apparently taking the slow boat.

 

The "vintage" pens are a mystery.  One is lapis lazuli colored, another is a combo pencil/fountain pen in an amethyst color, the third is beige and the last one looks like a partial desk pen with a white handle and a silver nib holder.  I am hopeful the helpful pen lovers here will help me sort things out once they arrive.

 

Ebay is rightfully dubbed "Evil-bay".  I really don't need another hobby. ;-)  ;) Pen restoration here I come!

 

My pens arrived a while ago, but I am just now getting around to posting pictures.  I have learned much from the purchase; terrible pictures on Ebay will result in surprises when the actual item arrives.

 

Blue pen is an Onward that is sparkly and blue and pitted, also has a broken tine on the nib.

Purple/amethyst pen is actually a burgundy Welsharp combo pen and is the best of the lot although the nib needs some smoothing.  It tends to catch on paper and pull fibers off.  I had fun replacing the sac though.

 

The beige pen is a Penman syringe type, and I now have a sorry tale of ruining a pen while trying to disassemble it for cleaning an restoration.

 

The last is a mother of pearl taper nib holder.  The gold finish polished up nicely, but I had no nibs for it until I went to the Triangle Pen show back and scored some lovely off-set #4 nibs.
