As of today I am using a Parker 95, silver plated, made out of brass and with gold plated trim accents. I found this pen in it's box 3 weeks ago in a closet and I love it. I am currently using the cartrige of ink it came with. Would you recommend other ink to use? parker95.jpg

For Some reason, I could not get the shimmer and chatoyance to show up in the same photo angle.

Two vintage Watermans: a ripple #7 with red semi-flexible nib and replacement clip (filled with Waterman Serenity Blue) and a silver pearl #94 with an early rivet clip and flat cap band (filled with Edelstein Sapphire).

I am absolutely chuffed by how good a job Dan Smith did on the nib on the Pelikan M600 Vibrant Orange I ordered from Nibsmith.com. Dan, thank you very much!

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.

This pen had a section crack but is too cool to not fix up flexible nib with more controllable flex although my writing doesnt really do it justice...got the original twist filler sacked and working fine.

Prototype Namisu Nova in Comet Grey with an absolutely divine stainless steel Bock EF nib. All for £21.50 delivered -They're having a SALE.

No scuffs or marks on the body as I was expecting. The section however is a slightly different Comet Grey to the barrell for those OCD types out there.

My love for this pen continues to grow :wub:

fpn_prototype_grey_namisu_nova.jpeg

(The ink on the paper is "My Griz" = 5 parts Chelpark Black, 2 parts Gris de Payne and 20 parts water. Useless as an ink, wonderous as a wash)

I haven't inked or used my Lamy Safari fountain pen for several months now, because to my best recollection the Lamy EF nib failed to produce a line even as narrow as F nibs on my (cheap or 'premium') Japanese pens. I'm therefore pleasantly surprised to see how finely it wrote after I filled it with Diamine Graphite last night.fpn_1546829263__delike_wooden_barrel_penfpn_1546832039__delike_acrylic_barrel_pe


Hi there. Which are these pens? They seem really pretty and comfortable to use. Any chance you could post pictures of their nibs. Or a link if you have reviewed them.
