F.P.R. Himalaya - Taj Mahal.  1.0 Stub.  Ink - Diamine Burnt Sienna.  The pen arrived this afternoon.  Nib is smooth.  Will be putting it through some paces before commenting.  Do like the screw in converter--reminds me of the Monteverde Napa. fpn_1484430695__fprhimalaya.jpg

 

F.P.R. Treveni Jr. Acrylic  1.0 stub.  Inked with Noodler's Walnut

How are your stubs? There was an issue some time ago that the FPR stubs (were smooth and all but) looked too close to a Bold/rounded tip with hardly noticeable line variation.


Pilot Blue-Black is my Waterman Serenity Blue.

Personally, I am satisfied with these 1.0 stubs.  As noted they are smooth with rounded tips, not like a .true stub.  However, they do aid in my 'unremarkable' handwriting.  For line variation, I would use a flex nib.  You can purchase a flex nib for your FPR pens.  Of my Ahabs, only one has a flex nib on it.

Thanks! Sadly I'm what they call a "sidewriter" so I can't write with flex nibs. I hope you can post a writing sample of your FPR stubs :)

I got a bit carried away: Ranga Duofold on bottom, red Indus and orange Himalaya from Fountain Pen Revolution on top, and sandwiched in between them three FPN group buy pens, my ASA Nauka, Ranga Bamboo and Ranga Model 3.  These are all wonderful pens - though I've only recently re-inked the ASA and the Indus.

ASA Popsicle - 1.1 Stub Nib. Schmidt converter. Inked - Chesterfield Mixture:  Fire Opal & Antique Crimson. Pen is about 6"  w/o cap.  This pen is truly a 'big boy' and will fit nicely in a large hand.  Wrote beautifully without my usual flushing upon receipt.
