  1. ​Sorry i mistakenly called it WingSung, so many new pens came out lately and they are so similar. anyway, it may look like TWSBI ECO but its not in the same league at all Great for rough use , not for showing off. ​
  2. Dip n Scratch

    Kwz Walk Over Vistula

    I have just loaded a sample of this ink into a Lanbitou 3059. The Lanbitou does have a 0.38mm nib, but does that really make a colour difference? The ink looks blue in the pen but dries much more towards teal than review samples suggest. I immediately suspected the Rhodia paper, so tried white vellum and Tomoe River (the thin stuff). Has anybody else encountered this? I wondered if the Lanbitou was writing drier than previously thought. Has anybody else come across this colour difference? I can't see how it would turn back to blue if I used a wetter pen, like one of my Indian eyedroppers. I will come back to you with images.
  3. and if you do not need the piston filler's capacity ... Lanbitou 8049 just come on the market recently , got half a dozen of them, could be had with EF, F or M nib ( thank you Lanbitou, now let's have B pls ) and in 12 different color finishes. After using it for a fill I must say I am impressed, the M nib on this one is smooth with a bit of tooth / feedback but more forgiving on all those office papers. The totally metal construction ( Aluminum lacquered over ) is quite roust but not quite so as brushed steel. The rounded off square form factor actually feel good in the hand, if you check the section carefully you can see that its indexed with a very slightly raised flat portion on the top where the other 3 sides are all slightly tapered without any. Its got the black feed and that's fine with me and work well with the smoked grey section. C/C filler, clip is usable and wide and very well indexed too. I try swapping sections and caps between them and they all fit so good job done on the Mfr's part. 12.2mm ( flat side to flat side ) barrel 9.2mm minimal at the section tip 131.5mm uncpped 140.5mm capped While the grip is also rounded off square in cross section it feel just like any other typical round section in use ; the pen could post but then it does not post securely , well its secure but the cap wobbles and its way too long for me . Of all the 12 finishes, four are pearlescent, four are clear coat lacquered, and four are vinyl matt paint finished the latter matt ones I've found easily scratched ( already got battle scar on my red one ). These are cheap fun pen to have wit a decent style and thank you; not another Demo and not another teen hot neon color. I think I am going to go buy a dozen and hand them out as gifts when I see someone interested in using fountain pen ( seems I am seeing more such lately, just give a Wing Sung 618 to a young store sales lady at the stationary store I frequent )
  4. I recently bought a couple of Lanbitou 3029s having read somewhere that the nibs could be swapped out for Lamy Z50 nibs. I wanted to use a piston-filler with a couple of broader nibs. I'm no nib expert – this is my first nib project – but today I had a go. I slipped out the Lanbitou nib, which was easily accomplished, and slipped on a Lamy Z50 B nib. It slipped on easily enough, but wobbled when it was in place. It seemed a little too wide to fit, though I couldn't see any real difference between the two nibs. I tried bending in the wings a little with my fingers. No result. I then used a pair of pliers and promptly ruined the nib, which bent along the centre line – the line between the tines – and had to throw it away. Before I ruin any more nibs, can anyone advise me on how best to deal with this situation?
  5. I have a Lanbitou 3059, which I believe to be a clone of a TWSBI Eco, but I am not sure how close a copy it is. Anyway I want to remove the piston assembly to give the thing a really good wash out as I have been using it with Diamine Registrar's Ink, which is an iron-gall formulation I believe. Anyway, there's some ink between the two seals of the piston. It needs a thorough clean with warm soapy water before I contemplate using anything else in the pen. The Lanbitou 3059 really is a 'nothing' pen to me. It does have a really fine nib, which is it's saving grace. The huge ink capacity isn't that meaningful unless you have found an ink colour you like enough to buy a good sized bottle.
