Mezzie, was this your Pilot VP in yellow or the Raden Galaxy?

I saw your post on another thread where you replied to the question on what was your dream pen.

Made me go look for it online. I like the idea of holding the universe in your hand.

Goulet has what looks like the Galaxy without labeling it as such.

It was the yellow, but I'd injured the Galaxy on my own before. Luckily, the nib units are easy to replace, though they aren't cheap. Very luckily, a fellow FPNer (not sure if he wants to be named) was generous and sent me a fine nib unit he had sitting in a drawer as he prefers a medium nib. The kindness of the people on here is quite astounding. :)

So, should I give up? Is it cheaper to have the nibs repaired rather than replaced (and if so, where do you recommend I send them?)?

I'm so sad... I love the pen so much, but it just doesn't seem to be working out. :(


No nib would survive falling into the ground or into the hands of a ballpoint user. VPs are great pens. Either take better care if yours or use a Varsity pen.

Lord, grant me the serenity to avoid the pens I don't need,
the dough for those I need and the wisdom to know the difference.

BTW, when I travel I always take a cheap pen, such as a Hero 616. This way if I lose it, some ballpoint user gets his sweaty little paws on it, it falls or any othe deadly incident happens, it's not a big deal. At home or my office, controlled and safe environments for pens, I use the fancy ones.
