Thank you for a nice review of an understated, possibly underappreciated, workhorse of a pen. I went through two No Nonsense fp's when I was in college. They stood up to all kinds of abuse (it never occurred to me to take care of them -- they got tossed around, dropped, chewed on, you name it). I used them to take hundreds of pages of notes, plus many doodles and scribblings, and never had a problem. The No Nonsense will always have a place in my pen cup! thumbup.gif

BTW, what ink is that? It's pretty.

The ink is MB Bordeaux that has mixed itself with the small amount of blue ink which was in the pen.

Great review!

The No Nonsense Viewpoints are perfect eyedropper fill pens. They hold a lot of ink and you can see exactly how much you have left. And, as you see from Georges' review, when you match the ink to the barrel color, they look great too.

I just received one of these from terim (no affiliation, etc., etc.).

What could be better than a *red* pen? A *translucent* pen! And what could be better than a translucent pen? A red pen! And what could be best of all?


Why, that'd be a translucent red pen!

Which I've wanted ever since Sheaffer came out with translucent colored barrels to supplement their original clear barreled school cartridge pens what? Fifty years ago? Pen came on a card with 5 cartridges and it cost something like ... well, I digress. :)


Now, all this new pen has to do is ... write! Which it does! Like a dream! And it's so .... *not* cranky. I'm in love.

I just stuck in a converter filled with Noodler's Fox Red and away we went.

Which of course begs the question - why does a humble pen perform so well, and a extra sooper sekrit limited edition emblazoned with hummingbird eyebrows (and I have a couple of these) write like a splinter dipped in concrete?

Some mysteries of of the universe are simply beyond me.

So I've got my Sheaffer translucent red pen now - and I don't have to go looking for a Sheaffer/Levenger Seas Connaisseur Red. I'm OK with that, for now :roflmho:

Unfortunately that's the newer version. The original NoNonsense(AKA Vintage, AKA Calligraphy Pen) didn't have the holes.
