collectorofmanythings posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopHello! I was wondering if any of you know or have ever tried to put a JoWo #5 size gold nib in an Esterbrook JR Pocket pen, specifically one from fpnibs.com. Thank you for your help! W. H. Major
Could I put a 18k Edison nib or 14k FPR nib in a Conklin Duragraph? Is there any other gold nib I could get that would fit it for cheaper?
collectorofmanythings posted a topic in Of Nibs & TinesHello! I love the look of many Conklin pens, especially the Duragraph, and the steel JoWo nibs are just fine, but I would love to put a gold nib in it. I saw that both Edison and FPR make gold nibs (I especially like FPR because it is $20 cheaper) in the #6 size and was wondering if anyone thinks this is a good idea or if anyone has ever tried it. Thank you for your help! W. H. Major I posted this in the wrong section before. Oops! Reposting to the right place, which I think is this one.
From the album: Chinese pensI came across this on Instagram just now while looking for reviews of Fine Writing International's Fenestro pen. This looks pretty nice, although unlike the resin-bodied Fenestro models which are fitted with steel JoWo #6 nibs, this version has a gold JoWo #5 nib. I'm not sure if this can be used as an eyedropper-filled pen with the barrel serving as the ink reservoir. I have an FWI Planet series ‘Mercury’ pen, and am pretty impressed with the build quality and writing performance. Its biggest ‘flaw’, to me, is taking more than three whole turns to uncap, so I wanted to find out whether the Fenestro offers any improvement in that regard. Irrespective of that, I guess I'm not inclined to spend US$260 (plus shipping) on a pen made in either China or Taiwan.
