indeed!!

thinking to use B nib for daily writing, it's such a fun because especially when i need to bold some words :D

i find the barrel is to small and i started to caped the pen while i use it, and yes this is also my first time to caped a pen. i found it's for a better writing experience because when the pen uncapped it's unbalance.

I like the feel of the body, although the nib can skip sometimes. When it writes, it is dryer than the metro.

ah...

thanks for you information! i love my metro but haven't got a new converter, so I have been using my geha for a while.

where do you buy your pen? how could you get that pen with that ridiculous price? 

 

I haven't tried violet but i got the black quink and a green penman. both of them are great for daily uses.

Jalan Surabaya, it's a great antique market. just ask them for pens then you chose the pen. well there will be just a few fountain pen though. they got a lot of ballpoint pen.

hope you find some later :)

 

never heard about parker penman in green! where did you buy?

Parker penman green is from parker penman series, that discontinued long time ago. I found it on my grandfather drawer's. it's a pretty good green, nice shading and pretty good flow.

Is it not too broad to use a broad nib as a daily writer? I tried using sheaffer targa with broad nib,but I found it too broad on some paper. Usually I use a parker im or a sheaffer imperial 444 with medium nib.

it is, but for non formal writing it's fun to write in B.

in a rael note i prefer M though.

I find that it's not comfortable using Kaweco Sport small fountain pen to write, but if you travel, it is a great choice! I have the pencil version of it in white. I use it to draw because writing is not very comfortable with it when i tried at a local shop. Maybe because I am left handed. a small fountain pen in general is not comfortable for me because of the way I write.

 

I myself just got an Osmia 14K semi flex pen nr 3 F nib - 773 (the filler is piston filler, i think. I'm not sure what it's called) from my client. I think that this fountain pen is also good for traveling since it's light.
