    Conklin All American Courage Red Review

    Today, I am reviewing the Conklin All American Limited Edition Courage Red pen. First of all, in my opinion Conklin get a lot of unnecessary bad press. While brands like Edison get wonderful reviews for their pens which often are around 170 bucks that come with a steel nib, and Conklin which also offers cast resins for sometimes over 100 cheaper, and they get horrible reviews. Now I am not saying that Edison pens aren’t great, because they are, I’m just saying that they are pricey for what they are, and, in my humble opinion, Conklin pens are a steal. If you don’t like the nibs, then you can g
  2. Hi all I made a comparison of two Stipula stub nibs in the "Of Nibs & Tines" section of this forum. Stipula is very often discussed here, so I thought it would be of general interest to post about it here as well. Link to the comparison: A comparison between Stipula 1.1 steel and 1.1 14k stub nibs - Of Nibs & Tines - The Fountain Pen Network Best Ruben
  3. Santini Italia is a relatively new company, although there was an older Italian pen manufacturer named "Santini" which may have been the same family. I am not sure what the "1998" engraved on the nib represents, presumably some important milestone in the company's history. The company is owned by Giovanni Santini, and he is the pen maker as well. He was previously involved with Ancora pens. Santini Italia attracted my attention partly because they make their own 18Kt nibs, and they offer a stub nib. They do make some somewhat blingy limited editions but several models that are quite traditiona

    Lovely Broad 51 Vac Nib!

    Hi folks, I had my eye on a 51 on Ebay that only had four fairly uninformative photographs and fairly minimal description (made in Canada, Parker 51), but the nib looked potentially interesting (though a little out of focus) It could have been blurriness - or a very broad nib. I made an offer of £20, and figured at worst I would have a parts pen. Turned out to be a 1947 vac-fill 51 in reasonable condition, with a seriously broad stub nib. I've only dipped it so far, but it writes really nicely. I'm waiting for a diaphragm & shellac in the post (my last bottle of shellac dried out), and
  5. Taiwan pen maker (and stationary products importer) Fine Writing International (尚羽堂) has released the 6th generation of their brass pen. The cap is a big part of the story of this pen. This is the first round cap in the series. The others were octagonal. It's also more ornate that previous iterations. It's crazy-cool. The design is inspired by patterns found in Chinese armour. It looks like the Mountain pattern armour (山文铠) which first appeared in the Tang Dynasty. Then there's the lion with the dagger in its mouth on the end of the cap. The concept is that given that the pen is

    A Pen Does Many Things

    An obedient nib can do many things, regardless of the purpose for which it was designed. Here I would simply like to show the different scripts of which a stub nib is capable, which vary a lot in style, age, complexity and speed of execution. The nib is a Montegrappa factory stub, fitted on a Extra Otto Shiny Lines. It sometimes seemed to me that some enthusiasts are held back in their desire to experiment with new types of nibs from the fear that these are of too specific use. Considering that a stub is often considered a very "specialist" type of nib, this post would argue in favor of

    Serwex 1362

    Serwex 1362 Red, FPR 1.0mm Stub nib The Serwex 1362 is a cheap ($6), Indian made pen sold by Fountain Pen Revolution. This pen is actually a pretty nice writer. I am always looking for new pens to review!
  8. Last month, I received a Leonardo Officina Italian pen. This was a limited edition (10 made) in redwood ebonite with a 14 kt gold stub nib. It is a piston loader. I posted a detailed review of that pen. (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/334672-leonardo-officina-italiana-momento-zero-ebonite/?do=findComment&comment=4029696) I liked it so much I bought another, but one of the "numbered" (not "limited") editions. This review will be less detailed, emphasizing the differences. Numbered Edition above, Limited edition below Numbered Edition, uncapped The size and form of
  9. I suppose that at least 25 Croxleys have passed through my hands - maybe more, so I can claim reasonable familiarity with them. Croxleys are not as far as I know, renowned for their nibs, but they are in fact always good; mostly semi-flexible mediums - I have had some that are fine and some that are more than semi-flexible, but I have never seen one like this one: It's a really nice stub, quite broad and close to an italic. The tipping suggests that it is original - i.e. not a re-grind. Has anyone else seen one of these? Rgds Cob

    Jinhao 159 Stub Nib

    Hi guys! Hope y'all doing well. It was that day again where this 15 year-old teen felt bored writing with a characterless Jinhao 159. So I just pulled out my pen customizing stuff and ground a stub. It turned out beautiful. It is smooth and wet and has enough line variation that makes the nib interesting to write with but still be usable for daily writing. Here are some pictures... I would love to learn more of this art. I also recently did my first paid stub for a friend and that also turned out quite good. P.S. Excuse the crappy pics. I promise to do a full review of the pen with
  11. I have install a pilot plumix's nib into my wing sung 698... so far, it perform rather well after i switch in kakuno's feed.. however when writing with the nib, I can feel alot of feedback... I can feel every single stroke, it almost feel like i'm pressing on the paper (or writing with a pencil)... but i'm not... Is this normal behavior for a steel stub nib? or it is just plumix's nib? thanks..
  12. Recently saw this nice Snorkel signature set and almost passed it up, until I saw that it has a factory stub nib. Had to get it. The problem: my wife and I are moving overseas in like a week. No time to mail and have a new sac put in, even with rush delivery...right? So, if there's someone around Louisville, KY who can do this, who would be willing to let me drop it off to them and pick it up, I'd be deeply in your debt. Thanks folks!
  13. Right now, the cheapest #6 stub nib is nemosine's is which is around 10 bucks.. So I wonder, does anyone else know a cheaper one? I just want to try out a stub nib.. Thanks.

    Problem With Nib (Stub?)

    I have Walh-Eversharp equi-poised fountain pen, it has stub nib. At least I think it is stub, nib leaves wide stroke down and thin sideways. But I just can't make it work with my handwriting! No matter how I try to hold it, it makes it look horrible... Nib is really flexible, wet and smooth. So nothing wrong with the nib, more about "user error". How stub nib should be hold when writing? Do I need to write fast or slow? Also, is there some script that is suitable this kind of nibs? If everything else fails, is it possible to regrind this stub to needlepoint? It has almost no tipping materi
  15. I bought a Pilot Plumix a while ago as my first stub nib pen. Though initially I had a bit of fun with it, I find I don't use it much - even while I use my flex nibs quite a lot. I thought it was a little bit of money wasted, until today when i found out I could use it as a flat-head screwdriver. With reborn purpose, I think I'll be using this pen a lot more now. Has anyone else found alternative uses of/for stub nibs, or am I the sole madman here? (Embracing for hatemail. Don't worry, I do take proper care of my other pens.)

    First Stub Nib (Lamy) ?

    I have another thread talking about my entrance into fountain pens; I won't go into too much detail, but if anyone is interested in a little background, feel free to read that thread before continuing on in this thread surrounding a few questions I have regarding stub nibs. Here is that thread: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/312663-first-timer-entering-the-world-of-fountain-pens/ I know there are a lot of really good recommended pens with stub nibs or even flex nib pens, however, I don't really want to buy another pen as I just got done spending a decent chunk of money so I
  17. As some of you may already know, there was a new stub nib released for the Pilot vanishing point sometime late last year. I did a cursory search around the web and the best price I can find is from Carmen Rivera. You can buy a vanishing point pen with the stub nib for about $60 more ($135 is the cheapest I've found @ Jet Pens). But if you've already got a few vanishing point pens, why bother with the extra expense (if it was $30~40 more, it would be a no-brainer). My question is... how does this 1.0mm stub nib compare to the Mottishaw and Binder customized stubs? I have a Binder example
  18. PILOT CUSTOM 74 - MUSIC NIB Pilot Custom 74 – Music Nib This happens to be my latest addition or you may call addiction to Pilot Pens. After buying and using PILOT CAPLESS I realised that I need more Pilot Pens and lot of fellow fountain pen users and friends recommended me to buy Custom 74 and here I must thank Dhruv for connecting me with Bunkidou Shop. Dealing with Bunkidou was an amazing experience and his service was excellent. I actually bought two PILOT pens from him, CUSTOM 74 and CUSTOM HERITAGE 92. And the EMS service was so amazing that the pens reached to India from Japan
  19. This is a review of the Nemosine Fission Gunmetal with a .8mm Stub Nib. Sorry for my poor penmenship, the reason why I got into fountain pens was to work on my handwriting and learn cursive. My one gripe with the pen is that sometimes it is overly dry to the point where it isn't a smooth writing experiance. Perhaps with time the nib will adjust? The pilot metro (fine nib) and Jinhao x450 (medium) are shown to give you an example of how the nib writes. I think the pilot writes a little finer, but the Jinhao is very similar to the downstroke of the pen As far as weight, a lot of people say
  20. Is it still possible to get stub nibs from Waterman or do you know of any other source of replacement nibs for the Waterman 100 (besides random luck on ebay)? I would love to find a factory stub but would also be happy with a medium that could be custom ground to a stub And if so, any idea of the cost? many thanks
  21. Please forgive the newbie question, but when I saw an Italicized nib, I thought it looked like a better version of a stub nib. Am I correct? Or does the stub create the kind of design that is more pronounced than an Italicized nib. Does someone have a photo posted at FPN of the different writing styles?
  22. I'm interested in buying a stub nibbed pen to compliment my collection, but I don't know whether I should vintage or modern. Also, which pen has a history of being the best, smoothest stub writer? Your experience, please.
  23. ]This is a brief review of my "Volcano" colored Monteverde Intima with a 1.1mm stub nib. I like this pen a lot--it's fun to write with and more enjoyable than my old Osmiroid, though of course I have to use fountain pen ink. This pen is a great journaling pen and if you lose it abroad, it won't be a total tragedy. The pen is a bit more dramatic-looking in person, because the resin has some nice mother-of-pearl depth beneath the orange veins.

    Twsbi 580 1.1 Stub?

    Hello all, I am thinking of purchasing a TWSBI 580 soon. I've finally been able to choose this model over the Vac700, yet another question remains. Do I purchase the 1.1 stub, or a regular medium nib? If anyone has experience with the TWSBI stub nibs or stub nibs in general compared to normal nibs, any advice would be greatly appreciated, Much thanks, CJ
