    Ouch! Clipped Clipless...

    This just...made me cross my legs and squirm. I had to share the laugh. Someone selling a Lady Sheaffer that has had a clip forced onto it. Talk about finish-ruining. Also, it's in just the orientation to beg for a capful of ink when removing it from the pocket for use! https://www.ebay.com/itm/392257655364 Cheers! Matt
  2. A coworker came into my office yesterday. She had entered a raffle to raise money for a friend, and she'd won a custom fountain pen! Since I'm the biggest fountain pen lover in the office, she offered it to me for free. And here's what a I got: A custom pen from Mini Wood Productions (MWP). It's based on their "Füller" series. MWP is based in Conroe, Texas. Their website says that their pens aren't "kit" but rather "create one at a time on a manual lathe." What an interesting pen. The body is aluminum, but pretty thick (making for a heavy pen-- sorry that I don't have a small enough scale to accurately measure). On their regular Fuller pens, the section is aluminum too, but I think this one has a copper section. The section is long -- about 23 mm -- with a couple of grooves near the top of the section for grip. There's a serious step down from the body to the section, but because the section is so long, it's not noticeable when you hold the pen. The cap, though, is acrylic -- listed as "alumilite" on the package I got. The cap is gorgeous -- lovely green, red, orange swirls with flecks dancing and highlighting the pattern. But it is super light compared to the body of the pen. And it sits in stark contrast to the utilitarian look of the aluminum body and the aluminum finial. The cap has no band, but I guess it doesn't need one because of the contrast to the aluminum body. Almost like two different pens smooshed together. The cap doesn't post-- it's a few millimeters too small to do so. Finally, there's no clip, so the pen rolls were it wants (and the cap does too if you put it on your desk while you're writing). This pen comes with a #6 EF from Edison. It writes smooth and clean right out of the (cardboard) box. But the website indicates that the "standard" Fullers come with Jowo nibs. I have to say, I've never seen a pen like this before. I really dig the beautiful cap, and the body is not uncomfortable to write with (if you like heavier pens), but the juxtaposition of the two is just a little shocking, at least initially. I'm so grateful to my colleague who gave me the pen, and I'll keep it inked with Birmingham Pen Honus Wagner Brown for a while -- it might be my editing pen. And for anyone looking for a unique, customizable pen, check out MWP.
  3. Hey everyone! Toyin here! I am excited, because I got my first custom fountain pen. It is a Ranga clipless cigar style fountain pen. Pardon me, as this is my first fountain pen review. I ordered a Ranga fountain pen from eBay, but the design I wanted was no longer available. I was able to talk with Kandan.M.P, and I had one with a similar design/color scheme made just for me. When I received it yesterday, I was blown away by the weight, feel, and polish on the pen. Let me get into more of the specifics: - this pen can be used with the included Schmidt converter cartridge or as an eyedropper pen - this has a two-toned Jowo #5 fine point nib - the pen is made out of premium ebonite - the size of the pen when capped is 7 inches - it writes extremely smooth, even when writing in script and fast - the pen feels perfect when not posted, and it still has a good weight when posted(I wouldn't recommend using it when posted, because of the length) My handwriting is more for speed than beauty. Yet, I included a little bit of a writing example, as well. Since this is a regular fine point nib, there is little line variation/little to no flex, but you can essentially write with it from any angle. Even writing with it in reverse(nib upside down) works. I paid $107 for this premium ebonite pen. The pen feels excellent, and the quality of the craftsmanship is great! I definitely recommend getting a Ranga fountain pen, if you don't already have one!
  4. Some of you may remember the short Jetpens Chibi 2 Review I posted several days ago. (Here's the link if you want to read it https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/310064-jetpens-chibi-2-review/ ). I liked the pen a lot, and it was a good size for me, but I was itching to do some sort of modification to it. At first I did some research on going full on crazy and buying a gold nib for it, but at that price point I could have simply bought a Japanese pen with a gold nib, and couldn't really justify the purchase. Instead, I took the broad nib from my Knox Avicenna (I have an EF that I prefer in it, as it is mostly used for school) and put it in th Chibi. Maybe it was just in my head, but it actually seemed like the nib wrote better in the Chibi! Inspired by my nib swapping success, I then removed the clip and changed the finish of the pen from clear demonstrator to frosted. It looks great, and writes great with the smooth broad nib. Here are some pictures, please refer to the original review for befote pictures. Note: sorry the pictures aren't the best, they were shot from my iPhone.

    Zephyr In Fire Nebula

    Here's a large Zephyr in some of the prettiest Lava Explosion material there is: Fire Nebula. This is a Large size, clipless, and includes a matching pen rest, as do all my clipless pens. Nib: JoWo #6. Cartridge/Converter/Eyedroper filler.
  6. So, recently I was cycling through pens and gave my 159 another go. It worked for me for the past week but today the ink spilled out of the top of the cap and into my leather case. Luckily, I cleaned it up and wrapped it in a cloth for the rest of the day I was at uni. Anyways, my solution was to put silicon grease on the top threads in the case that it would happen again. Then I had a thought. What if I left the clip off? I present to you: Quite beautiful IMHO. Sailor 1911L for comparison. NB: just remember to put silicon grease on the top as although it is tight, I wouldn't trust it to be waterfast.
