Hi all!

Check out this paint brush, 1.8mm smooth stub retip to a brown areometric. Talk about a paint brush. In fact, my suggestion is that if you would like one of these lovely retips, best to use an areometric pen, as the vacumatic pens hold less ink and believe me, this nib consumes ink like a 1971 Cadillac Eldorado 8.2 liter V-8!

Paintbrush indeed, but that's a another beautiful retipping job. I'm sure that in the right hand, it will produce wonderful things.
I came here for the pictures and stayed for the conversation.

Gorgeous pen, does it have a brown cap jewel? The nib is a work of art, you are on my short list.

Ah, the '71 Eldo. If I remember correctly, about 500 cubic inches with 16 valves, about 350 hp, and a very, very smooth Cadillac ride.

Thank you! This is an areometric, so no cap jewel.

Yes, 500 cubic inches and 16 valves. very smooth. Some are still around here in California as I see one about once a month on the road.

Lots of ink! And most hands, even unpracticed hands, this nibs is a dream to write with.

Have to disagree with two statements you made..
1 A properly restored Vacumatic with a correct length breather tube holds MORE ink than an Aerometric 51....
2 The cap on Parker 51 pens have jewels.....

Thanks for the info! Do you have a photo of an areometric with a double jewel; would love to see one, and learn something!
