  2. Blue. Body only. Thought I'd try a smaller pen, but it doesn't like me. ¡No me gusta! I adjusted the nib to suit my taste, so I'll be keeping that along with the feed and housing for a larger pen. I prefer to screw the whole nib unit out, as opposed to pulling the nib and feed. I'm keeping the converter as well. £5 postage. UK only. First person to pm me.
  3. Hello, everyone! So I have decided that my next pen is going to be an Italix from Mr. Pen. All of the models interest me and what like to hear peoples on input on which model I should obtain first as my first Italix Pen. No matter which model I choose I am going to go with either a Medium Italic Nib, or a Medium Stub. I'm thinking I should go with The Churchman's Prescriptor or the Parson's Essential.
  4. My first Italix pen is a Churchmans Prescriptor with a medium cursive stub nib. I had a pretty awesome experience with Mr. Ford and decided that I'm going to make my next purchase through his Mr.Pen site rather than through massdrop and would like everyone's opinion on their favorite nibs from Mr.Pen. Lately, a ton of my pens has been picked with stub nibs, because I just love stub nibs. However, I just purchased a Metropolitan with a fine nib and now I'm thinking I need to go on a Fine nib binge lol. I'm leaning towards a Fine, Extra-Fine, Italic Fine, or Fine Cursive, maybe even an obli
  5. I've purchased several pens from Massdrop and so far two pens I purchased had quality control issues and wondering how everyone else's experience with them has been? Most recently I purchased an Italix Churchman Prescriptor with a medium cursive stub nib; the tip of one tine is higher than the other and on the other tip of the tine it has a dent in it. So not only does it write scratchy but it also doesn't even come close to writing like stub. I kinda screwed myself by waiting several months to ink it up since Massdrop probably won't return it or exchange it. I know Mr.Pen warranties the

  7. First of all I would like to apologize if I have done anything wrong, this is my first review. I could not find too many reviews of this pen online so I thought I should share my experience with everyone. My wife recently gifted me a new pen that she knew I had been interested in for quite some time. An Italix Captain's Commission with an extra broad cursive stub nib. I have only had this pen a few days but I am already very fond of it, so here are my first impressions: Quality: The pen feels very well build and feels like it is made to last. Nothing seems loose and everything seems to l
  8. I was excited to find some Montblanc Permanent ink, so I got a bottle of blue and some cartridges of black. The blue is amazing, by the way, I'm using it with a Lamy Al-Star, no issues there, beautiful color, normal flow. But for the (black) cartridge, I'm chose to use them on my Italix Parson's Essential, with a medium nib. I obviously washed the pen before changing the ink. But after I'm not using my pen for one or a few days, the flows stops. I need to really shake the pen, or use filter paper to convince the ink to start flowing again. Sometimes I just rage quit and get the nearest pen to

    Greetings From California Usa

    Greetings fellow FP enthusiasts! I've been lurking here for a couple of months and finally made an account. About 3 months ago, I was talking to my son. He said that he had heard good things about fountain pens, and that I should try one. I logged on to the Amazon website and bought a Pilot Metropolitan (Medium). Worth a try for under 15 bucks, so why not? I liked it so much I bought some pens as gifts for my (adult) kids... Since I was buying gifts, I bought my self some good notebooks and accessories to reward myself for being such a generous dad. I liked those too so I bought some
  10. Does the Parson's Essential Fine Stub have tipping, or is it just a less severely cut italic (which has no tipping) from them?
  11. I've recently ordered an Italix Parson's Essential ( fine nib, non-italic) and am waiting for it to arrive. One thing that I didn't consider when researching for the purchase is that the Italix nibs, having been reground (although I'm not sure whether the round point ones also have this done), may lack tipping material. Does anyone know if this is the case? How much would this affect the nib's durability? Cheers, Harriet
  12. No affiliation, etc. but I know there are some fans out there of Italix pens. So this is a heads up on the Massdrop of the Parson's Essential. I have always wanted one. I like the Celtic band. Seems like a simple classy pen. Thought I would try the medium stub. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/italix-parsons-essential-fountain-pen
  13. Peter Ford deserves an award for inventing the most evocative, magnetically Anglophile names in the entire category of stationery products. As a fountain pen user, being able to deliver the words Parson's Essential, Churchman's Prescriptor, and Imperium State is worth at least $5. "Wow, that's a shiny pen you're using today. What is that?" "Oh, this? It's called a Churchman's Prescriptor. Comes from a guy in Northwest London." Staples and Office Depot should hire Ford to re-label entire rows full of products. Those notebooks bound from paper made from sugar cane waste, sometimes called "bagass
