Very nice color set.  :thumbup:  Which nurse pen do you want (red, black, green jewel? all?)


Best Regards

Thank you :)
I am only looking for the one with the black jewel to match with other pens. :) i dont have an interest in the Js and LJs at the moment as well as the pastels so its just have been all SJs as i love the small size of these pens.

Well, after the SJ set is done, you can start on the transitional SJ set with a single jewel.  I actually like the feel of those better.

Glad to see the Sheaffer nib I fitted in the collar getting good use! That's a great writing sample.

Thanks Jordan for the nib, the other lifetime nib you gave me is being used on a nibless Sheaffer Balance https://imgur.com/a/DYffx and now i have started swapping old broken collars with usable nibs and the flex nib here is one of them :)

I don't think I've ever seen jewels like that on Esties.  I've seen photos of the different colors on the nurses' pens, of course, but not variegated ones.
