I am curious to know what is considered the best / right / perfect balance point for a pen as it is held. This will be a centre of gravity point always locating in a narrow range regardless of pen length or weight (or else it would not be an ideal balance point). Is it measured in distance from the nib, the section (allowing for variation in grip) or somewhere else? Of course I know how comfortable I am with each of my pens, but I am wondering about the recommended or ideal position? I searched without finding a corresponding thread, in case this already exists as a topic.
Hi Guys! I've recently realized that when choosing a pen, the size of the nib is an important criterion. it's difficult however to find a nice chart that compares the length of nibs available on some pens. I'm talking here about the visible part of the nib, because let's face it, after all, that's the only part we care about So here are a few picture that can help (sorry for the crappy quality, I took them with my phone). Bear in mind: one square is 5 mm, while the lines are set at 1 mm distance from one another. Batch 1: Very small nibs 1. Venustas Schreiber (2-3 mm) 2. Lamy 2000 (6-7
What are the best instruments to use to get accurate measurements of fountain pens? I want to measure weight (and I assume a postal or kitchen scale would be adequate for that). Is a caliper the best instrument for measuring diameter? I want to measure barrel and grip diameter. Thanks, Susan
