Hi.

I'm a new member here and need some help with these pens.
They all work and the set with the green one is never filled or used, the ink bottle is never opened.
I appreciate if someone could help me with the history and the value of these pens. I might sell them so I appreciate the value of each pen.

Thanks

Buppen

:crybaby: Such pretty pens :drool: ...and he's thinking of selling them. :gaah:

I'll give you two dollars a piece for them and pay for the mail. B)

Without three or more parties in Parliament/Congress there is no democracy; only oligarchy. 

 

Due to Mauricio's improved definition of Super-flex, I try not use the term Easy Full Flex, but fail...sigh.

 

Semi-flex is an “almost” flex; not a ‘flex’ nib. It is great for regular writing with a touch of flair. It can give you some fancy; but it is not made for real fancy writing. For bit more of that get a 'flexi'/maxi-semi-flex. Both spread tines 3X.  Those are not "Flex" nibs. 

 

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.
