It seems there are people who cannot write with pens which are too heavy, too light, too thick or too thin. I am not among these. Perhaps ArchiMark or so can answer you.

Size and/or weight have influence on the hand muscles. Some people get cramps from writing with the wrong size/weight.

 

Personally I prefer a somewhat fatter pen and heavier. I have the feeling I can better control a heavier pen, a lighter pen seems to go places I don't intend.

 

I had the same very long ago when we played field-hockey in school. Most other students had a lightweight hockey stick, mine was a lot heavier.

FWIW, My olive wood Man 100 is a couple grams heavier than the listed 'regular' Man 100 at 38g.

I was requesting barrel diameter info....

 

It helps understand what the form of the pen is like.

 

Whether a pen is very thick or thin has a great impact (at least for me...) whether a specific pen would feel comfortable in my hand.

 

Can also understand wanting to know length, and weight too in this regard.

I see that the Laureat mk1 and mk2 are there but not the mk3. I'll need to check the measurements of mine, or are they the same as the mk2?.

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.

We must appreciate there may be differences in weights and measures more so on earlier pens which may have additional hardware (cap and barrel rings) and possible worn threads and barrel diameters.


I consider getting from point A to point B an undue constraint on what might otherwise be an enjoyable drive.

 What do you think, Force, if this is now the complete and comprehensive list we could hide the other posts?

It is still missing a few modern pens,

 

Hemisphere, Lady, Man 200, Liaison etc.

 

But if you feel some posts are no longer relevant then please have a clear out.

Le Man 100 silver (not the Etoile) differs only in its weight from other Man 100, 45.5 g capped / 32.5 g uncapped, very similar to the Patrician.

 

 

EDIT: incorporated these in the list above. Thanks! D.ick
