Is your 4C matte in the section and polished on the body?

That left-most pen and the Emperor look like they have thicker sections than the others relatively speaking.

I'd say the Model 5 is pretty thick too - comparable to the 3C and the Majestic.  The grip section on my Model 5 is certainly pretty 'meaty'!

I wonder if it depends on the individual pen, because my 3c section gets really narrow, unlike sanseri's 3C in the picture.

Which of those is your favorite sanseri?

I suppose Mr. Kandan sends the email notification to everyone who has made a purchase with him in the past.

I think that's right: since I've participated in a few group buys now, I normally get an email from Mr Kandan, a day or two before the group buy goes up on FPN.  No added discounts, though - just slightly earlier notice that it's on again!

The kanwrite flex nib is basically the noodler's Ahab flex nib right? If so, I tried one at the store last week. It is not very soft, which is good for me, as it can be used for fast writing. I'm thinking of changing my order from the fine nib to the flex nib. Any thoughts?

Hello,

I just sent two Google forms and paid 148 USD in PayPal.

These are my options:

* 4C / Clipless / golden brown (s24) / c/c mechanism / JoWo gold monotone Broad / Polished.

* Bamboo / grass green (s28) / c/c mechanism / Bock dual tone Broad / Polished.

My email address is different between the FPN and PayPal, but you can read "Larrabeiti" in both of them.

Thank you.
