My 3 Christmas gift pens.   :)

I've already changed the ink in the Oblo (having used up the cartridge) to a more suitably Oceanic, diamine Aster, which fits the pen and theme far better.

I will also be changing the ink in the Dolcevita. Nice though the red lustre is, it does nothing for the pen, therefore Onyx black will be deployed very soon once I've finished the initial fill.

 

Thanks Santa   ;)

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.

It appears to have been a wonderful holiday season for FPN members. This is a pointed oblique holder with Tachikawa G nib, Moon Palace sumi ink.

A Very Happy New Year to you all. It's 2017 and today I am using “Lamy 2000” and it comes with BB nib. It is filled with GvFC Hazelnut Brown.

Congrats! The pens couldn't be happier - they found a good home and expert hand.

Never cared for Oblo, but here it's looking so good... And this Captain's tool is no less interesting. Regarding Dolcevita... No matter how many other pens you have, this one will always shine.

IMG_20150430_072743997_zpsxpaupvsk.jpg

Good morning, my friend!

Once upon a time, I had a Soyuz like your green one (mine was grey). Lousy converter and surprisingly smooth fine nib. I also had a Soyuz "flighter" pen - an upmarket model with a "sharknose" semi-hooded nib and blue ink window, a Montblanc knock-off. Its 14K medium-broad was wet and springy, suitable for all kinds of fancy headlines - mostly Gothic ;)

 

 

A Very Happy New Year to you all. It's 2017 and today I am using “Lamy 2000” and it comes with BB nib. It is filled with GvFC Hazelnut Brown.

Excellent! Still have to try this Hazelnut Brown - I have a dozen new inks, and no time to use 'em. Enjoy your 2000, you handle it so well!

I've been away from FPN for a while, and it's always such a delight to come back! So many awesome pens and penmanship. A feast for the eyes for a pen lover.

 

Today, I am writing with one of my favorite pens, a Sheaffer Valiant Oversize.

Franklin Christophs come with JoWo #6 nibs +/- Masuyama mods. This one is a standard fine.

The Nock cases are very good.

Here are two favorite pens I used this evening, separated by more than 80 years: a (circa) 1935 Sheaffer OS Balance in Ebonized Pearl, and a 2016 Aurora 88 in matte black resin with rose gold furniture. Both exquisite in the hand, and utter delights to write with!

Today I received my Conid Bulkfiller Cappuccino. I'm ecstatic! It's fantastic! I had a little scare regarding my order originally (of my own making) and wasn't sure I got my order in. Werner was fantastic and helped me thru the final processing. Thank you Werner for your help and thank your team for such a magnificent pen! I have a few new toys and may post some practice reviews in the next few weeks.
