    What Is Your Ideal Nib?

    What is your ideal nib? Mine would be a EF 21k flex nib with some feedback,lesser-moderate wetness, and preferably No.9 sized. What would a nib like this cost,and are there nibs like this out there?

  3. So just thought I'd ask other users, since I find myself using very cheap pens more and more. What is your favorite low budget fountain pen? My collection consists almost completely of Jinhao's Baoers, and free noodlers pens. I find myself using them more than my pilot metro, ahab(though it leaks and replacement is on the way) and others. So, please post what your favorite or favorites are in the low end of the price spectrum, what nib, and why they're your favorite cheap pens or even favorite pens. If you can post pictures that's even better.

    One Pen For Life

    This post was inspired by the one pen inked thread, but is fairly different from it. If this is in the wrong forum, Moderators, please move it. Thanks! With that disclaimer out of the way, here's a question for you all to mull over a bit. If you could only have one fountain pen to use for every situation (a true daily carry- suits, jeans, school if you're still in school, writing novels if that's your thing, everything) for the rest of your life what would it be and why? You do not have to currently own the pen for it to count. If you'd prefer to or can't narrow it down to a production pen and/or only one pen, answer in three categories- A) A modern, production pen B ) A vintage pen C) A hypothetical and/or custom pen that does not exist (at least yet) If you want more of a challenge and/or are more into the inks than the pen, apply the same categories to a perfect, use for everything, buy a gallon and be done for life ink. For me, I think that my perfect pens would be A) a Lamy 2000 with a buttery smooth fine nib (I'm easy to please sometimes) for its durable material, design, ergonomics, nib, piston and large ink capacity B ) a Parker Vacumatic or (vacumatic?) Duofold in a beautiful celluloid pattern with a springy 14K fine nib for its nib, design, ergonomics, weight, beauty and ease of filling C) a modern ebonite eyedropper pen, about the same size as a Vacumatic, with polished ebonite in either black or green ripple, with a two turn multi start threaded cap, a shutoff valve, a 14K high quality glassy smooth fine nib that was ground and tuned to write an EF line on the reverse, with a ball clip, a good burp proof feed and an ink window (see above for reasons) My ink would be Noodler's Liberty's Elysium (at the risk of sounding like a broken record) for its shading, water resistance, ease of cleaning, brightness, vibrancy, unique look, and fairly good behavior So, what's your PERFECT pen and ink?
  6. Does the sentence, "The five boxing wizards jump quickly." have any meaning to you? What if I said, "The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog." Well if you've ever made or seen an ink review you're probably familiar with this sentence. What I'd like to talk about is why- why do we use this particular sentence all the time? Some may say it's because it's just what you've always seen so you just picked up on the trend. Others vouch that it's the best sentence because it's a pangram. (a sentence containing all of the letters of the english alphabet at least once) My point is that it may be the most well-known pangram, but it certaintly isn't the best. There's so many more creative/fun pangrams out there that it's a shame no one ever uses them, such as: sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow; pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs; or jinxed wizards pluck ivy from the big quilt. All of which contain close to or fewer letters than the famous quick fox. You could even take it upon yourself to create your own pangrams. Here's an example of one of mine, "Quiz, what fox coveted big picky jackal mooners?" I was currious what you'd all think about it. Would you consider useing other sample sentences? Does this not even concern you? Let me know your thoughts. edit: spelling error
