I went on a spree of sorts around my birthday a few weeks ago. They were all inexpensive pens won on eBay. Still waiting for:

Duke Beijing Opera Rhythm (the cheaper version that's mostly black)

Hero (not sure what model number, but it appears to be flowered)

Jinhao Carnation

These are all from international sellers, so I may be waiting a bit longer. Also, I'm not buying any more pens for a while because I'm saving for a Sailor Naginata.

"I don't like to send on pens -- even if factory sealed as this one was -- without examining and adjusting the nib prior to shipping, as I want the pen to be ready to write without any adjustment on the part of the customer. In my experience, close to 90% of the pens I receive -- from all manufacturers -- require some adjustment on my part before I send them on their way.


Wow I at least gave the manufacturers some slack when I complain about pens quality roflmho.gif

I have ordered 3 pens from China, total cost $20 including shipping (!), sold through an Ebay shop with names like Black Shiny Excutive Pen, another that looks like a 51 and I cant remember the third. I am working on the basis that its not a lot of money and if one of them can be lent out to a convert then its no bad thing

I'm still waiting for the Sailor Sapporo F nib. Turns out to be out of stock; just my luck......a delay for a few days.

I am waiting for this Marxton that was discovered recently on a friend's work desk.

MarxtonRedOpen.jpg

The pen is essentially new and has a flexible fine oversize 1940's Waterman's Emblem nib. I traded a Parker Duofold for a pristine Sheaffer OS Balance in the green striped color, a pen I've been lusting for some time and this Marxton. The Balance is already here, so I can't say I'm waiting for it. rolleyes.gif

Cheers,

I'm waiting for 2 vintage Pelikans, a 400 NN from the 1950s & a 400 from the 1980s. I'm holding off mailing a package of other pens to Binder until after these vintage pens arrive as I may be adding them to the package (for nib smoothing). Which means, of course, a long wait until I see them again, but it'll be worth it.

Has anyone got their new FPs in the mail yet........or should I be looking at the 'what pen did you get today?' thread? blush.gif

No........two, the Bexley from Germany & Sailor(UK), are still 'in the post', and my two 'Europeans from America'(DolceVitaOS, Duofold Intl.) are with the Spanish Customs.

So I could possibly have 4 more pens this week.

.....Make that five...I won a Delta Alfa Romeo Giulietta off ebay(uk) ......I coveted the Alfa Giulietta when I was an early teenager, but I guess this is the nearest I'll get to ever owning one smile.gif

An old and a new Waterman's

The old - an oversize 100 year pen with semi flex '18' nib.

The new - a Diamond Black Edson with fine nib.

the Edson will be my first modern Waterman's since I acquired a Man 100 with a medium nib in about 1997.It is still one of my favourites

I can't wait to try the Edson.

These are some kawaii things from Jetpens, mostly different colored Pilot Petits and a couple of Preppy pens with cool Japanese writing on them, about five characters of which I can read:



And I found this at the first garage sale of the season. The pen has no cap (no wonder the instructions warn you the cart will dry out) but the carts seem to be standard internationals in good shape:

rogerb - I hope you get that soon, it sounds great


Well, it arrived today, along with my Bexley 10th Anniversary Lime with broad stub.

The Sailor is a bit of a disappointment....I cannot get it to write any way much different from Broad....very smooth and a pretty nib...just Broad! Changing writing angles is fiddly and not, apparently, very effective.
well, I didn't have a Broad nibbed pen!!(apart from the stubs).
A very nicely-finished pen.

The Bexley is a nice handful, but looks a bit cheap, IMO, the shiny silvery trim especially...apart from that lovely big, wet Bexley stub nib.
That takes a bit of getting used-to, because it is wide, and also surprisingly flexible.
It's now loaded with Diamine Monaco Red, the exact colour of the red-brown swirls in the green resin smile.gif

I'm new to this great site. I've always had a pen and pencil fetish being an artist, but I never realized that so many had the same addiction hehe. Thanks to wealth of information available on this site, I've bought my first two fountain pens and awaiting shipment. First one is an EF black Parker 51 Aerometric and the second is a brand new fine nibbed Namiki Sterling Dragon. No more doc signing with freebie pens from title companies heh.
