Where there appears to be dark sections of the pen body....turn the pen over of flick it a bit in other light and the dark parts vanish.

I have to ask the guy for permission to use his fine pictures.....my Brownie just don't quite do it.

Seeing how I bought my pen from him, I don't see any reason why not.

Due to Mauricio's improved definition of Super-flex, I try not use the term Easy Full Flex, but fail...sigh.

 

Semi-flex is an “almost” flex; not a ‘flex’ nib. It is great for regular writing with a touch of flair. It can give you some fancy; but it is not made for real fancy writing. For bit more of that get a maxi-semi-flex. Both spread tines 3X.  Those are not "Flex" nibs. 

 

Wider than Normal does not exist. Wider than Japanese does. Every company has it's very own standard + slop/tolerance. Developed from the users of it's pens and inks only; not the users or inks of other companies pens. The size you grind a nib to, is your standard only. Paper and ink matter to nib width. Thank god for 1/2 sizes or it would be boring.

There are some very nice pics on Instagram right now. Mine will be delivered tomorrow along with the Ocean Swirl.

No word on mine but hoping it will ship soon.  I ordered the FP along with matching ballpoint from LCDC and hope it does not get held up in Chicago customs as an order was held almost 3 weeks there about this time last year.

I finally got around to asking permission, a bit late in the business day, in I bought the pen from them I don't see why they won't let me use one of their photos.

My '90's 400 tortoise has a dark brown cap and piston cap; one has to put the pen next to a black one to see the deep brown.

The very, very dark brown of this 200's cap and piston cap...makes the dark brown of the old 400 obvious....and one does have to look very hard at black to see the bit of brown.
