  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.

    Nib Bent On Purpose

    This is a brand new pen. It isn't damaged. That is how it is supposed to look. It's a Duke Guan Yu Calligraphy Pen with an extra long tip. Gives new meaning to the "bent nib" or fude category. It can lay down a 4 mm line and is good for lettering as well as sketching. It isn't a general writing pen, but it can be tamed to write a 1 mm line. The overfeed keeps ink flowing nicely. Cool pen, eh?
  5. So, this is an interesting pen. I mean, for <$5 shipped (ebay), there is nothing to complain about at all. I had to seat the nib/feed a little tighter in the section, and other than that, it's surprisingly nice for the price (like everyone says about them)... But what in heaven's name am I going to do with this pen? haha Once I figure out a writing style that works consistently with it, I can see it being fantastic for greeting cards and envelopes and fancy things like that... but for the most part? I suspect I will end up putting a "plain" #6 nib on it, so it gets used more than twice a
  6. Hello fellow denizens, I have a hankering on to try a fude nib. For those who aren't familiar with this, it's like a regular nib with the last 2-3mm of the tines bent up at around 40 degree angle. Anyhoo, does anyone have any recommendations of where to start? The Parkablogs guy - Teoh Yi Chie - reckons that the Sailor naginata fude de mannen (now there's a name to juggle with!) is an expensive option, perhaps too expensive, and gives a couple of other options from Chinese brands Duke and Hero. Another option is a modified Jowo #6. If anyone has one of these a heads-up on what it's l

    Fude Nib For Dip Pen

    Does anyone know of a UK source for a fude type dip pen nib? Thanks Alex
  8. As stated in my siggy line, I collect fude-nibbed fountain pens, so when I learned of this model I was eager to try it. And as I had also found one of my first (long-gone) inks ever, I was really set to go. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7405/10743006043_dc229463ef_z.jpg http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2887/10742725276_2828846c47_z.jpg This is a fat, thick and heavy pen, and its plastic section has some texture, which makes holding it somewhat easier. As noted, the pen is back-heavy when posted. But it's still writing! I don't know whether it's the massive fins on the feed or because
  9. At least, I classify these as beginner pens! From left to right: Leonardo 'Silver Check' fude-nibbed pen that takes standard international cartridges or a converter, light weight. If you were ever curious about writing with a fude, this is your chance to find out. Duke 2008. Ribbed silvertone barrel and red cap with cloud design. Dryish, medium-fine nib. C/c filler. Xfountainpens/Bulow/Jinhao 450 in soft brushed gold. Wet, wet, medium nib. Heavy. C/c filler, shaped section. Reply with a bit about yourself and pen likes and dislikes.

    Fude Vs Arabic/architect Point

    I was wondering, while scribbling with my custom Arabic nib, what would be the difference, regarding the line produced, between an Arabic/Architect point and a Fude nib... They look exactly the same to me on screen (somewhat the opposite of an italic), but since I don't own a Fude nib, I can't actually tell the difference in person, so I thought of asking here....so, is there any palpable difference between these two? Thanks!
