Hello lovely people,

 

This is my first Pif, so excuse if I botch something up.

 

Somehow somewhere I have found myself in the possession of a Reform Calligraph fountain pen with a BB nib (double broad?). As I cannot write comfortably with anything bigger than a fine and it also pains me to have a pen that I don't use in my tiny (newbie fp) collection I would like to give this one to someone else.

 

As you can see from the pictures below it has seen some of the world before coming in my possession and the "gold" plating is beginning to flake of at some points. I have cleaned it as best I could (flushed it for about two Goulet Q&A episodes) and it seems to be ok now.

 

If you would like this pen please raise your hand until sunday 22. feb.

As I understand, I should then make a random draw and I contact you via private message and and post the result here.

 

Cheers!

I am interested, thanks.  I also normally use fine nibs, so this would be an interesting change of pace.

Count me in too, I do like a broad nib, and enjoy trying to "write fancy"

Very generous of you.


It’s a well kent fact that Scotland (The Land Of The Rising Water) has the most beautiful, picturesque, colourful, history laden landscape in the world.

It’s just a shame that you can only look at it through a rain soaked car window.
 
Every cloud though,  If there was no rain, there’d be no RAINBOWS.

 

My top tip:-

If you are walking the dog through mountain bike country.....don't wear headphones.

Hello,

firstly - wow, what a response :)

 

To the person who asked:

 

I'm in too!!!! \o/ 

 

Just asking, how will you choose? By random.org?

 

Anyway, I'm very very interested! ^_^

 

Yes, I will do a random draw, with a screenshot and all.

 

As for the following:

 

Please count me in.

I'm interested in that particular pen, and it has not been easy to find.

 

I researched Fpn before deciding to put this pen here. I've seen some people were interested in it, but honestly I didn't feel comfortable putting the pen for sale. I didn't buy it neither do I know what sort of ink was put inside it before I got it in my possession + the dinged up outside doesn't help either, so I can not guarantee full satisfactory pen enjoyment. 

 

It is a very funny pen (particularly the nib, it looks like a little piglet's nose), very useful for drawing and possibly for highlighting purposes, but as I said, I just can't use it - the nib is just odd :)

I will be glad if it gets a home in which it can be useful. 

 

See Read you guys on sunday!

Wow. What a nib! If the PIF is open to folks on my part of the blue marble, I'd love to enter.
