Nice review. Do you have two pens? In the first photo it looks red and in the others it looks green. Also, which dip pen nib did you fit? Thanks.

I picked up an old ringtop pen that had been renibbed with a Fellowship nib. There is tipping but not as much as on the German or Chinese pens. It writes a smooth, wet, fine line. I wouldn't mind picking up a couple of these.

Hi
i have ten of these pens, but left with a few now.
One of the pen i tried to modify the feed to fit in a dip nib.
The dip nib is from China - falcon dip nib, chrome plated. The fitting is ok, but slow starting (probably due to air trap). Once it started to write, (after a jerk or two) it began to flow nicely

thanks for your interest
