  1. A Smug Dill

    Balance of a filled Platinum Plaisir

    From the album: Hanging in the balance

    The Platinum Plaisir show was installed with a CON-500 converter (which was not empty at the time).

  2. From the album: Hanging in the balance

    If I recall correctly, the vendor called this pen model (with four variants in the type of wood used) a very informative “Delike Handmade Nature Wood Barrel", but it looks just like a Delike Submarine with a wooden barrel and brass finial to me.

  4. From the album: Hanging in the balance

    I must admit I'm uncertain whether the Delike Submarine pen pictured has an acrylic barrel or a celluloid barrel. The item listing said celluloid, but I cannot detect any camphor smell.

  6. From the album: Hanging in the balance

    The Kaigelu 316 has a reputation for being uncomfortably back-heavy. In 2020, it appears some design changes have been introduced in the new release colours of the model, such that the weight balance has shifted somewhat. (If I recall correctly, the converter attached to the gripping section was more than half-full of ink when I took this photo.)

  7. I am curious to know what is considered the best / right / perfect balance point for a pen as it is held. This will be a centre of gravity point always locating in a narrow range regardless of pen length or weight (or else it would not be an ideal balance point). Is it measured in distance from the nib, the section (allowing for variation in grip) or somewhere else? Of course I know how comfortable I am with each of my pens, but I am wondering about the recommended or ideal position? I searched without finding a corresponding thread, in case this already exists as a topic.
