So it's just past my birthday, and every year I've been getting myself a little something in the FP world
I've been contemplating a Platinum 3776 UEF or SF since last year, but lately I started thinking maybe I should try EF in the Pilot (my current fave EDC is a F nib Pilot Metro - primarily for the nib)
I tend to write 20+ pages a day and prefer to use inks that have waterproof qualities - mostly due to climate here, coupled with my tendency to spill things! Which is disappointing as I love some of the Diamine inks for their sheen & the shimmer ones are so much fun! (that's another topic!)
I've been using a 50/50 mix of R&K salix/scabiosa as my EDI in my Pilot and love it. I'll probably get some Platinum Classic to try out next.
After reading lots of discussions I'm torn between all 3 of the Japanese makers
and today after trawling the forums some more I am thinking maybe what needs to happen is a new nib on my TWSBI ECO. I love its capacity of the piston filler but the EF nib has been nowhere near the pleasant writing experience I get from my Pilot and more like a M nib, which is not fine enough for me.
I am currently considering the following:
Platinum 3776 chartres bleu in UEF
Platinum 3776 in SF
Platinum PTL-5000A in EF
Sailor pro gear slim in EF
Sailor 1911s in EF
Pilot Celemo in EF
Pilot Vanishing Point decimo in EF
NIBS - ack so this is a new experience, I am totally open to suggestions here. I've read of success putting Sailor 1911s nibs on ECO, and also JOWO #5 and Franklin Christoph #5
But this would be a new venture of purposely buying a nib for a pen, and I wonder if I'll get something I love or be stuck with another pen languishing. (my poor Lamy does this despite having EVERY nib)
So folks, what do you think?
