Spent some time yesterday night playing around with my Faber-Castell Ambition and Tsuki Yo ink.

Hi.

Now I'm using this unknown cheap fontain pen, made in Germany. Paid 5 € on eBay including shipment.

Ink: Pelikan 4001 Royal Blue on cartridge.

It writes smooth.

This pen seems to be a Jinhao 8812.

The Christmas decorations went up at home this weekend and things started to feel a lot more festive.

The heating was on. A cup of tea & mince pie on the go. A perfect opportunity then to spend a little time with a Sailor 1911 H-M . . . The pen isn't mine though, I hired it.
 

Thanks to so many gorgeous nib photos and reviews here, I've wanted to add a Sailor to my family of pens for a long time and leapt at the chance to try one out.
Phwoar, that nib is pretty and this red & black version shows it off well. Thank you Jon Rabbett for having the courage to lend out such beautiful and delicate pens.
Trust is a beautiful thing.

Beautiful pens.

Your Parker 51 cap needs cleaning, though.

Gorgeous Sheaffers, InkyFingers! Fantastic!

I just received this Pilot Custom 74-M in the mail!

IMG_0048.JPG

I had a bad experience with a CH 92-B in the past, but at the affordability this was from overseas and my own satisfaction in other Pilot Pens I thought I'd give this a try:

 

Came brand new, unopened, still sealed, and with tines perfectly aligned and a gloriously smooth nib that wrote perfectly OOTB.

 

My preference is a Jowo Medium size, have had trouble finding anything finer that I like, but this Japanese Medium is just what I have needed:  A finer nib that writes as smooth as broader nibs without that added tooth and extra difficult feedback finer nibs can have. 

 

I was nervous this would problematic, but the risk paid off to a high value pen I am very very happy with.

IMG_0049.JPG

It has a con50 in it.  I know, looks kind of funny.  I actually do have a brand new con70 to put into it, but I wanted to make sure it at least worked well with Pilot inks.  I have it inked with Iroshizuku Yama-guri and it is fabulous, buttery smooth, has good wetness and has seemed to have found a home in my shirt pockets it somehow made its way into :happy: .

TWSBI Eco in Blossom Red, with Robert Oster Red Candy. I ususally use Herbin Rouge Grenat in this pen, but i wanted to try Red Candy because, well, I'm trying ALL of Oster's latest, so I had to put the Red Candy in this one, because it matches so well!

I'm so pleasantly surprised by and impressed with the Nemosine Singularity Obsidian demonstrator I received from Pen Chalet on Christmas Eve, I just placed an order for half a dozen more Singularity pens (and $440 of other non-Nemosine products), mainly to give to acquaintances (who are already, or may be, interested in fountain pens) and spread the word about Nemosine.

fpn_1546017384__very_impressed_by_nemosi

 

A Fine nib that can reliably lay down a 0.3mm line, yet also allows writing with broader strokes, is a terrifc nib in my book.


As always:  1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment.  2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published.  3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.
