I bought and returned the Pura. It does not come with a converter, but Fountain Pen Hospital included one for free. I was really impressed with look of the pen - much more of a modern statement than so many pens out there. Unfortunately, I didn't like how it wrote. I found that it skipped at least once every 3 or 4 lines. (Truth in advertising - I'm a lefty and I often turn and twist pens as I write.) I had high hopes for the pen, and in person it looks every bit as good as its pictures and has a wonderful balance. But for me, the skipping was just too annoying to keep the pen.

Greetings,

I have created this topic for those of you who would like to request specific pen reviews from FPN members. Basically, you can request a review for a specific pen model or manufacturer here. All you need to do is reply to this topic and hopefully one of you can post a pen review in the area where we normally post reviews. Periodically I will purge out the requests that have been fulfilled or have been in the thread for a year (expires), this will save space and make this area less cluttered and easy to browse. If an older request of yours is deleted, feel free to add again--the later ones are viewed more frequently.

I hope that this will make your requests for specific pen reviews easier to fulfill.

Please enjoy and thanks for your support!

I would appreciate a review of the Pilot Custom 845 Ebonite pen with possibly a comparison with the Sailor KOP.

Would like to see reviews of:

Pilot Ecrino

Office store brands. In particular, Office Depot has its "Focus" brand and makes a FP (seen on the spinner rack with the Pilot Knights and Waterman Phileas...es... Phileae?)


[EDIT: Ecrino has now been reviewed--here.]

I would love to see a review of any of the Hakase fountain pens. A Happy New Year to all.

I second the motion for a review database for ballpoints and rollerballs.

Also, a review on Pelikan 300 would be nice.

Hi guys

Hey why not a tete a tete in between some pens considered as similar.

I do propose

OMAS Milord tete a tete with Montegrappa Miya

or

OMAS Paragon tete a tete with Montegrapa Extra 1930

comparing nib qualities, filling systems materials etc

Any way also some review for the Miya will be nice

Very best

Ricardo

Hi, I'm looking for a good review of the Parker sonnet with a fine gold nib. I know it should be easy to find a review for such a popular pen but i don't know why i can't seam to find a good one.

Thanks.

I came across a line of pens from the Paridise Pen Company in the US. They run under the brand name 5280. I was hoping that someone might have some insight about their functionality. I certantly like their look and feel. You can take a look at their site to see them.

Thanks in advance for the review.
When going on a journey always take your pen.
