    The Myth Of The Artist Pen

    Greetings, It has been a while since I have posted. While I have many pens the focus of my collection is vintage Waterman pens. In particular, I focus on pens with flexible nibs. A few years ago I picked up a Waterman Artist Pen (Model 751) from the Fountain Pen Hospital. I can't remember if it was advertised as "New Old Stock" but it appeared to be brand new. Recently I was looking for more information about it. Having not found much at all, I decide to post my observations from the limited information that seems to be available. If anyone else has any experience with these pens, pleas
  2. Hi, last week a stunning Swan #2 tuned up nib arrived on a Swan L212/60 (late 1930s). It has a double pointed tipping: downside a F with good flex and on the top a real needlepoint! The L212 isn't restored yet, so I took a 6260 for a writing sample on A5 paper with 5mm squares: Some details of the nib and tipping: I haven't seen such a nib before, it seems to be a lucky find... Best Jens
  3. On a lark, I picked up an interesting PILOT pen. It's some kind of micro rollerball, probably equivalent to 0.3mm or 0.5mm. PILOT made these as a series of technical pens, as an alternative to using an <XF> nib fountain pen or a stylograph. PILOT discontinued the Hi-Tecpoint line, but they did "refresh" it with their "Precise" line with V5 and V7 pen refills (0.5mm and 0.7mm respectively). Anyway, while PILOT had made disposable pens that use these refill tips (incorporated into plastic bodies), there were also high quality stainless steel examples. I even saw a sterling silver one
  4. As I'm new to the world of fountain pens, I probably have different expectations than more experienced fountain pen users. I want a fountain pen that writes as thin as a Pilot Hi-tecpoint V5 RT. What shall I aim for? I guess a Lamy EF nib will be too broad (I have an AL-star with a F-nib as my first fountain pen). Any Asian pen that will fit my expectations? Budget: ~US$50

    Is This Sailor Nib Defective?

    I write very small, so I've concluded that needlepoint nibs best fit my writing style. I am always looking for a needlepoint stainless steel EF nib, as Gold Nibs have too much time spread which gives line variation. The penmanship, Pilot's Steel EF nib, is very good for my tastes; the problem, though, is the stock nibs are always scratchy and need tuning (even after the break-in period). I was really hoping that a Sailor EF nib would be as fine if not finer than Pilot's EF. Alas, was I disappointed...! Are Sailor EF nibs like Pilot F nibs? I've always heard, even from nibmeisters, that sailor
  6. I recently spent a few hours working on my good ole' ebonite Noodlers Konrad. I hadn't used this pen for quite a while and wanted to spice things up a bit. The changes I made (and highly recommend) are as follows: 1) the "easy my flex" mod, were you grind a portion off the sides of the nib as seen in the picture. 2) I doubled the depth/width of the feed channel, which managed to eliminate almost all railroading except on very aggressive downstrokes. and 3) I reground the tip to an XXXF needlepoint. I don't know how to measure the actual degree of fineness I achieved with this grind, but
  7. So, I just bought this cool little pen with a cool little needlepoint for sketching and tiny twee notes. It's a dry writer and Michael Masuyama is no joke--it really is a foine nib--so I'm a little perplexed as to ink. The included cartridge is a pretty blue but the ink sometimes looks well-nigh invisible since the line is so very thin! I don't want to abuse this precious nib, so any ideas for a dark, possibly black ink that will show up and flow well, yet maintain the delicacy of the line? Thanks!
