Delike Times with rosewood(?) finish. Obviously 'inspired' by the Faber-Castell Ondoro, but a cheap 'clone' at that, it was sub-optimal in more ways than one out-of-the-box. I fixed the most egregious issues (amateurishly), and it writes well enough, but I just haven't been using it much.
But then, I started doing this thing over here, and wanted to grab the one pen I remember was last filled with Noodler's Kiowa Pecan ink. It hard-started for a little bit, and then it wrote... sorta. Enough to do several test 'slides', and a couple of throwaway paragraphs on Rhodia paper when I was trying to establish whether it still worked or not.
I decided to refill the pen last night, with the same ink as before. On removing the converter from the section, I could see it was down to the last half a drop of ink; more than three-quarters of the converter's worth of liquid has evaporated since the last fill. Then I went to update my inking log book, and saw...
... that the pen was last inked mid-July in 2019, more than thirteen whole months ago; and, as I said, it still wrote and not just a few words. I was absolutely astounded by that.
So it gets to go out with me outside today, displacing other pens I could carry for the day.
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.
