Nakaya Desk Pen (M), Noodler's Walnut.
Sheaffer Connaisser (XF), PR Midnight Blues w/Noodler's Black boost.
Marlen MCH Paris Rings (XF), Montblanc Midnight Blue.
Stipula Vedo (F), Noodler's Red-Black.
I have a Sheaffer Tucky inked with MbMB, but that's only until I figure out whether or not Brian Gray will be able to transplant the nib to an eyedropper Edison stickpen (what I'm calling it). I have to send him the pen first. Thus the delay.

OF- Semi flex 14 K Pelikan 400NN Black and Green stripped. Piston. 1956 friction fit. MB Toffee.
KM- semi flex 14 K Geha 790 Black and Gold. Piston. '50's..very early 60's. Waterman South Sea Blue.
M- stiff regular 14 K...silver cross hatched Parker-75, that I have had from 1970, before the fancy French word. (second best balanced pen for my hand, I have)
Squeeze filler. Pelikan Black.
M- Regular Steel... Artus, with Geha school pen M nib; regular. there is something wrong with both other Artus nibs I have. Piston. Early '50's. Pelikan Brown.
M-nail "18 K Dupont" ( possibility it is counterfeit, but a very very good counterfeit._C/C. 1990+. Waterman Florida Blue.
M-nail Steel....Cross Townsend, Midnight Blue. C/C 2009 New. Waterman South Sea Blue.
M-nail Steel..... 70-80's Black and gold Diplomat. Cartridge. Mystery Diamine cartridge, Prussian Blue or Moljo.

It surprised me I had so many cartridge or C/C pens and so many nails inked.
Once I pen up a cartridge I got to keep it in a pen, until empty.
South Sea Blue is my newest ink.
Mystery Cartridges are some Diamine cartridges sent to me by a friend.

Semi-flex is an “almost” flex; not a ‘flex’ nib. It is great for regular writing. It can give you some fancy; but it is not made for real fancy writing. For that get a 'flexi' or a "flex" nib.
Wider than Normal does not exist. Wider than Japanese does. Every company has it's very own standard + slop/tolerance. Developed from the users of it's pens only; not the users of other companies pens. The size you grind a nib to, is your standard only. Paper and ink matter to nib width. Thank god for 1/2 sizes or it would be boring.
