  1. I’ve been using fountain pens almost exclusively for a little over two years now. Like many fp enthusiasts, my early purchases included the Pilot Kakuno and the Platinum Preppy, both with extra fine nibs (which I tend to prefer). I’ve since acquired higher quality pens with nibs I like just as much as the efs on those two (such as the Pilot 823 <f>, Pilot 912 <PO>, and Platinum 3776 <sf> & <uef>) but which sport screw caps that often feel like a needless chore to deal with; and I’ve found nicer pens whose designs well dispose them toward serving as wonderful, easily deployed work horses (all from western brands: Lamy 2000, Faber-Castell Loom, et al.), but none of which seem to be available with nibs capable of the truly extra fine, delicate lines produced by their Japanese counterparts. So I’m soliciting suggestions for basically any pens other than the Kakuno and Preppy with both a convenient capping mechanism and a Japanese-width extra fine (or extra-extra fine) nib. Expensive name brands or cheap aliexpress offerings, anything in between, hit me with whatever comes to mind. Thanks! (Last thing - I have owned 3 Vanishing Points and 2 Curidas’s, all with extra fine nibs, and all of these either tore soft paper to shreds worse than my Pilot posting nib on its worst day or had that issue + required a ton of tweaking and smoothing to get them to write at all (guess which ones had this problem 😂)).

    Tiny Nibs - M200 Ef Vs P200Ef

    Before I ordered my M200 Brown Marble, I looked in my inventory program and realized I only had one small Pelikan Extra Fine nib. It is in a P200 though. I LOVE that little pen and it is always inked. I use it every week. The only finer nib I own is in a Platinum Desk Pen. So I ordered the Brown with an EF. Lovely writer, smooth, not scratchy, crisp line. But... I didn't think it was as fine a line as the little cartridge pen. Got the loupe out to see. Indeed. There is EF and then there is EF. I expected some nib difference between a piston pen and a cartridge pen, and perhaps two years is a long time in a nib factory? So here you go, a couple pics to show the difference. Not exactly "blobby", but the M200 on the left is a different point. I like it a lot. But for Extra Fine bragging rights, the little P200 is still my finest "out of the box" Pelikan.
