Congratulations - trust you enjoy your purchase! Just remember to check the tine alignment on your EF nib *first*, and to go very gently with the micromesh. You can always smooth away a bit more tipping, but you can't put it back on if you've removed too much!

Ok, thanks !

 

I saw that The Pen Habit just posted one video about smoothing pens, so i think that i can follow this, Goulet pens also carry a tutorial (I've never done this so I will have to be careful).

 

I will put pictures, impressions etc in this thread when i will receive all of this, I'm very pleased :)

Just FYI, Stephen (SBRE) Brown posted a YouTube review of these pens today - check it out at:

 

I have the broad nib on my Treveni Jr. Ebonite, and I agree with Stephen, it does a very nice job.  It is not a true broad, more like plump medium.  Using Chesterfield inks, I have not had any hard starts (except when I left it upcapped for a couple of hours--my fault).  My hands are small, so the Jr. fits my hand beautifully.

Congratulations - I couldn't resist ordering another, this time a mottled red.  Here they are, side-by-side:

hey guys!!
I was a little upset with the Triveni Jr's medium nib. So I didn't use the pen much.I also have faber castell basic which has a smooth nib but I also did not use that because I felt it to be quite back heavy.
I was wondering what to do with these when suddenly, I had an idea. I tried to switch the nibs.....AND IT WORKED!!! The pen now looks and writes well. wondering if any one else has tried this.

How well (deeply, snugly) does the Junior version post? How is the balance?

The cap posts very snugly on the Triveni Juniors - I'd estimate nearly 2cm over the back of the pen.  Check out the two photos below:

You'll notice in the above photo that the acrylic pen is slightly shorter than the ebonite - I've lined up the 'backs' of the pens before capping the ebonite, to give some idea of how far on the cap sits.

In the second photo (above) both pens are capped - the acrylic cap seems to sit on a little further.  Checking out the website today, the ebonite pens all conform to the design of mine (i.e. a metal ring around the cap opening) - but so do most of the acrylics pictured.  They seem to change the acrylic 'colours' from time to time - I think that's an upstream issue in terms of what rods are available to the pen-maker...

 

I find these pens very comfortable in the hand, either posted or unposted - partly because they're so light-weight.  My hands are short enough that I don't *need* to post, though - so I often don't bother.

 

Hope that helps!

The FPR pens are quite good and Kevin is a gem when it comes to problem solving

I have the Triveni Jr with a flex nib... Really nice but I had to get the feed replaced due to railroading... Kevin to the rescue... And the Jaipur... With a stub nib... Not happy as it writes like a broad, no line variation to speak of... Will order a flex nib replacement for this.

The Triveni series is worth buying, the ebonite set... I just wish they provide it with. #6 nib... If available I'm going for the red ebonite soon.

Regards
