As promised, here is an image of the pen writing. Apologies for the smudges everywhere and the horrible writing, i'm a lefty  :P

 

I have only just started my fountain pen trip about 6 months ago, these three pens are the ones I currently own!

Just an update: For some unknown reason, I gained superhuman strength and light feather touch powers today that allowed me to push the nib and feed back in to where the original marks were without ruining anything. 

 

 

Nice work.

 

Enjoy.

Yep, I second that. vintage 149s nibs are among the best if not the best.


Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time
