Hello everyone here at FPN, this is my first publication this year and I take this opportunity to show you my most recent acquisition.


I made this purchase on eBay at a good price and it is a very interesting vintage flexible fountain pen:
Measures length: 5 inches
Brand: Unknown
Pen material: Ebonite
Clip material: Steel
Overlay material: I don't know
Filling system: Eyedropper
Ink capacity: 3ml
Nib: 14K Warranted # 8 flex
Flow: Wet
  It is a fairly light and comfortable pen to use and is quite fun to use and enjoy its flexible nib and its fed is quite generous, but it requires me somewhat decent paper since the feed is wet.
Next I will show you the photos of the fountain pen and some writing samples using flex and another without flex.

Very nice.  That's a pretty pen, and clearly the nib is special.

Very nice!

I may be mistaken, but didn't MONTBLANC make these heart-shaped breather-hole nibs, also for other companies?
