  1. From the album: Nib comparisons

    These were done using the black-coloured steel nibs to suit the HongDian model 1850 Black Forest. I can't tell you whether the performance and differences mirror that in the silver- and blue-coloured nibs for that model. By the way, two things I've since learnt from first-hand experience: the cap on the HongDian model 1850 is not very good at preventing ink evaporation; this holds true for both the Black Forest and Birch Forest variants; and Lamy T53 Obsidian ink is very nasty stuff once dried out in a pen!

  2. From the album: Nib comparisons

    Originally posted here: This sheet shows the additional comparison against a Sailor 21K gold F nib's output, but note that it wasn't writing with the same ink as the Delike pen and nibs; I was trying to determine at the time which Delike nib to order for recipients of the pens, and just wrote a couple of lines with the already inked-up Sailor on a lark.

  4. When I clean and flush my pens, I usually leave them in an upper shelf above my desk. It just so happened that as I reached upwards to grab the cup I use to soak them in, my hand slipped and knocked it over. The pen fell on to the hard floor nib first, causing the tip to bend, and the inky water caused a mess. Is there any way to fix this? It still writes, but not as optimally as before. I don't live nearby any pen shows, so unfortunately I can not bring it in person to a nibmeister if it is repairable. Is there any way to unbend the nib myself (I know that fixes for these are rarely self
  5. I just bought a 400NN tortoise with an OF nib from a well-known European dealer/member. He supplied several top and bottom-view photos which looked perfect, but when the pen arrived the side view turned out to be this: Surely the nib should not be bent down so far! Should I send it to a nibmeister to straighten? If so, whom would you Pelikaners recommend (I am in the US.) The pen writes semi-decently but is quite dry and a bit scratchy (perhaps due just to the dryness.) Apart from the bent nib it is quite a nice pen and I would rather not send it back for a refund. I may ask the seller for a
  6. A couple months ago I purchased a Pelikan M1005 demonstrator with a Medium nib, which has been a "grail" pen for me for quite a while. While it flowed like Niagara Falls at first, liberally spilling the stunning Akkerman Shocking Blue all over my Rhodia notebook's pages, somehow after removing the nib several times I must have pinched too hard or something because I completely lost ink flow. After fiddling for a while I could get it to flow while writing with the pen at a 90 degree angle. But nothing while writing normally. I've been frustrated with myself about this, but after scouring t
  7. So I recently acquired this pen, the hope is to have the perfect 'every day' pen. It was a mess when I got it. Old dried out ink had effectively glued the cap on, but after much patients and lots of water I now have a nice clean pen. I currently carry a Lamy Al-Star in a bag for my larger notebook and a basic UniBall Roller in the pocket with my Feild Notes. Both write well but I carry the Roller because it's small, always at hand. The Al-Star just never feels like it disappears in the front pants pocket, thus relegated to the bag. I'll include this one mostly for the size comparison. The

    Can These Phileas Nibs Be Repaired?

    As I mentioned on another thread, I dropped two Waterman Phileas pens onto the sidewalk. As RMN wryly observed: "Murphy's first law for fountain pen owners. The chance a pen drops nib down on concrete is proportional to it's value..." That was painfully true for me. I have checked with several of the best nibmeisters. None that I found would repair a steel nib (which the Phileas has, despite some gold plating). Nor do they do repair/replacements on the Phileas because the pen—and therefore the nibs—are no longer made. I know that the Kultur and Harley use similar barrels and tips, but I wou
  9. Hi fellow pen appreciators, I have recently dozed off during a most educational and fascinating training session. It was a waste of time, and most sadly it took the life of one of my favourite everyday-use fountain pens. (My advice: if sth is that boring and useless, don't fight the boredom, save (pack up) your pen and assume sleeping position. ) It was a Pilot MR and I loved it. So smooth, trustable. Anyway this happened to it: :( A new one costs ~18€ or 25$ in a local chain and being primarily a student, for both sentimental and financial reasons I was wondering if I could get
