  2. I am amazed by the n number of inexpensive pens without the compromise on quality front from major of the Chinese pen manufacturers especially Hero and Jinhao.... There are other expensive Chinese pen also there with the likes of duke, kaigelu.... Recently i got hold of lot of Jinhao pens which I will be reviewing in future days to come one by one. Today I am reviewing "Jinhao 886" what looks like an big bullet... Design & Built : The pen looks and is built like a bullet. Its construction quality is amazing. Not very heavy not that light also. Just apt for its size.
  3. Hey everyone, thought this might be a fun little thread/ball to get rolling. What are everyone's favourite song lyrics? Handwritten posts only! I'll start off with one of mine, Pages by ATB feat. Haline

    Marlen Aureus

    The Marlen Aureus was a pen I didn't plan to buy, as I was completely unaware of its existence. So you could call it an impulse buy - one that has made me think twice about doubting my impulses.
  5. ASA – Galactic Jumbo Demonstrator ASA – Galactic was my first demonstrator. I never liked the demonstrators but i decided to go ahead with the purchase and amazingly I was the first one to buy this. Following is my review of the pen. Design & Build: My first demonstrator is a jumbo sized pen which has a fogged finish. The pen looks like what it is named “Galactic” The real beauty comes out when you ink up this pen. Aaaaah so beautiful. I have suddenly started liking the demonstrators. The pen is beautifully engraved with company logo on the barrel and also my name is engraved on the c

  7. 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
  8. The pen I am reviewing today and actually using for quite long is Wality 52 PD. And this is my every day carry (edc) pen. Th detailed review of same with the handwritten samples and size comparison can be found on my blog here. Wality 52 PD This is actually the second Wality pen I bought after Wality 69 A, because i liked the way 69 A wrote. Wality pens are manufactured by Airmail Pen Company based out of Mumbai, India. Like 90% of my pens this pen also was procured from ASAPENS also. It is also available at Fountain Pen Revolution albeit at Higher price. Design
  9. HERO - 336 Over the period of past 4-5 months i have started collecting Chinese Fountain pens which i will be reviewing one by one. This review is about the pen which was recommended to me by Mr. Subramaniam of ASA Pens after i have collected lot of Chinese Fountain Pens from local market of Old Delhi (Nai Sadak & Sadar Bazaar). And I am surely not disappointed at all. Lets see what are the goods and not so goods about this HERO 336. Hero 336 Design & Built: As far as design is concerned it is a decent, simple, sleek looking pen and you surely might see lot of iterations

    Click Majestic Pen Review

    Unique Pens recently came out with new fountain pen which is a quite subtle design. I quickly grabbed the pen as soon as Mr. Subramanian of ASA Pens shared the image of the same with me. Below is my review of the pen which i have been using for past 2 weeks. Click Piston Filler Design & Built: I purely bought this pen for its looks and after my first demonstrator which was Galactic, i wanted to explore the territory of demonstrator pens. This pen is a small sized sleek piston filler pen. It comes in 5 translucent colors, Clear, Blue, Red, Green, & Brown. Out of al

    Rohrer & Klingner Verdura

    I felt that given the festive nature of today, I should do a quick review of the most outrageous green ink I have (to be fair, I only have two green inks, but even still, this one is pretty outrageous): The paper used was a Staples Arc notebook refill. This paper is not as coated as say, Clairefontaine, but I found that this ink bled through a little bit even in my Rhodia. No feathering there though… Anyway, here is a close-up of just after I pushed a bit more ink into the feed: I think that the problems I had with my pen running dry was a combination of writing too fast for
  12. As promised, here's my review of the Nakaya titanium Piccolo Writer with a broad stub nib. My handwritten review is at the bottom, but I wanted to add some thoughts with each photo, so the text of the handwritten review is not going to completely match the review as posted - sorry about that! Here it is, in all its glory Note the pointed ends. On an urushi or maki-e Piccolo, this is a soft, conical shape. On the titanium Piccolo, it's weapons-grade The machining/lathing marks you see here are continued on the grip; they provide a very pleasant texture! This grip is not slippery
  13. Flow: Easy, smoth, moderate flow. Ideal. Lubrication: Moderate or slightly more. Shading: A surprising amount on Clairefontaine considering how pale it is, but it does shade, absolutely, but only on good paper. No such luck, or rather, harder to get on Staples bagasse and/or cheaper. Saturation: Not saturated, but readable. Sheen: Again, a surprising amount, considering its saturation. Feathering: See below… Ghosting/Bleeding: Not really. You need to lay down a rather heavy line to get any ghosting, but when you do it, it MAY bleed. Smearing: None, even in the areas of heavy flexion. Dry ti
  14. I saw this the other day I thought I would share it with all my fountain pen friends... http://cfptommiller.blogspot.com/2014/05/the-power-of-handwritten-note.html Here are some tips to remember when sending a handwritten note: Use a plain, non-standard sized white envelope. Using a traditional envelope will make your note look too much like a bill or other junk correspondence. Try to find cards and envelopes that are sized like birthday cards or greeting cards that you would find in a card store.Handwrite the addresses on the envelope. This goes without saying, but typing the address and

  16. Hey, everybody, here is a review of my new favorite pen: the Monteverde Invinicia Color Fusion - Stealth Black with a 1.1 mm stub nib. I had a problem with the feed that I managed to fix (I explain in more detail in the handwritten part), but I don't think anyone should be afraid of that if you are considering purchasing this pen. It was such a strange problem that I think it was just a factory fluke. Anyways, here you go. Enjoy: Hope this was helpful to someone. youNibs
  17. I have just come across this blog by Christina Vanko. http://www.cristinavanko.com/modern-day-snail-mail I wonder if she is a member of FPN.
  18. Well? is the Zebra V-301 the worst pen, ever? I don't know...I kind of liked it when it first came out, and being a fan of inexpensivecoughcoughcheap pens, I was compelled to try it. It wouldn't start until multiple dips. Later I read that this may have had something to do with its odd feed, more like that of a felt pen. I don't have my original purchase any more. But there's been a lof of forum chatter about these lately. So naturally I bought a couple of them again. Well....maybe not the WORST pen, but will not make my Favorites list. http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3725/97145

    J. Herbin Rouge Hematite

    I was roaming around at the local book/pen store last week, where I broke down and bought a bottle of inkJ. Herbin Rouge Hematite 1670 Anniversary Edition. This is a red ink that’s got some sort of pigment in it which causes it to shade bronze. It’s original formulation was so full of this beautiful pigment (at least I think it’s pigment?), and that it would clog pens and resulted in a reformulation after being on the market for a year. I love inks that have fun shading properties, and I love this ink. http://nibcrease.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/p1020133.jpg First, the ink comes in this

    Hello All, I recently read an article about a man who completed a handwritten copy of the bible, which he was going to ceremoniously present to a local church. Understanding that within the last few hundred years, copying by hand was required if one wished to replicate a written work - are there people that still do this? As I dwelve into the land of FPs, calligraphy and penmanship I've considered copying books as a way to entertain me while I practice my writing. Unfortunately I get bored doing repetitive exercises (yes, I know that exercises are important too....) so I'm looking for some
