  1. Let me start of by saying..... I LOVE this pen. You may think that the Kakuno is a child's pen but honestly? It writes amazing! So smooth and wet that it is perfect for a beginner and seasoned as well. All around pleasure to write with! If you don't want to write with it in public (i.e. Its childish looks) at 14$? Get one for home! No start up issues even without flushing. Right out of the box its ready to write. Id suggest a pilot CON-50 converter and bottled ink (sold separate) if you want lots of color options (why not? 😁) and if not you can get refill pilot cartridges on amazon .com or j
  2. I love everything about the Triple Tail. The largeness. The clearness. The non-smellyness. The plunger filling system. The 308 cartridges I can use. Everything, that is, but the nib itself. It's just too darn much for me. It's finicky, which is bad enough. But even when it does work after heat setting, etc -- and even with an ink as simple as 4001 Royal Blue or Waterman Serenity Blue -- it's like writing with a paint brush. And that's before flexing! Before I return it for a partial refund, I thought I would see if anyone has managed to trade it out for a #6 nib? And it not a basic #6, th

  4. Hi folks, I got this Parker 51 from Ebay for a total of $70 including shipping. I'm trying to figure out of the nib is a medium or a broad. The pen is Made in England. If it's a Medium, it's quite a bit broader than my Made in England Parker 45 medium nib. What do you folks think? I am writing on Mnemosyne paper. Thanks! The nib says "14K" "585" "Parker" "Made in England" and I believe that's about it. I'm interested because I never thought I would love a nib that's this broad. It works well for speech outlines because it's easily legible.

  6. I recently acquired two Sheaffer Sagaris fountain pens, one with a fine nib, the other with a medium. I decided that I preferred the fine nib so I went looking for a fine nib unit to purchase to replace the medium. Since it's the entire unit, it should just screw into the barrel, right? I found a replacement fine nib unit from a seller in England, purchased it, and it has arrived. It won't screw all the way into the barrel that came with the medium nib unit. Hmm... So let's try the fine nib unit from the other pen from the original purchase. It won't screw all the way in either! Oh, futz..
  7. Hi all, I am about to go after a Pelikan M800 with a Medium nib. Does anyone have some writing samples to show of the Medium nib (ideally compared with the Broad nib, in case you have both pens)? That would really help me move forward with this purchase.

    Medium Montblanc Nibs

    Once again, I have so send my MB purchases to Germany for new nibs. They came standard with Medium nibs, but I need a fine nib. I just don't understand how Medium can be the most popular MB nibs. These nibs write broader than typical Japanese nibs. I assume the Medium gets better shading, but whenever I try writing with them, all my "e"s and "o"s get filled in. It's much harder to read my writing. When using standard ruled paper, I don't understand why others wouldn't have this problem as well. So, MB Medium Nib lovers, what's your secret? Do you just write very large? Do you not care
  9. Monteverde Invincia - Stealth Black (M Nib) Review To start this review off, keep in mind it is my first review; and as all reviews, is at least somewhat subjective. Also, for perspective, I have used this and 4 other fountain pens, which are: Pilot Varsity Lamy Al-Star Lamy Safari Conklin Duragraph and I have been using this pen for around 1 month. Overall Appearance: Measurements: 5.35" / 136mm long capped 5.30" / 134.7mm long uncapped 6.10" / 154mm long posted 1.10" / 28mm long nib 0.55" / 14mm body diameter 0.35" / 8.9mm grip diameter 1.40 oz/ 39g weight overall Monteverd
  10. I have the choice between EF and M on a GvFC classic. I would probably have gone for an F normally but this is really a good opportunity so that is out of the question. I am happy with a fine line, as long as it isn't scratchy and has good flow. I hear GvFCs are on the wetter side so that pushes me towards an EF. Does anyone have any experience or comparison of an EF v M? I've again heard that GvFC, being German, tend towards a broader side of things. For comparison, I have a TWSBI EF which isn't too fine or scratchy for me (I think it's a good one though). I also have a MB 146 M which is a
  11. Hi Guys. I have been into fountain pens for a while now, but I hadn't bought any expensive pens until now. My collection mainly consisted of TWSBIs which I have been very happy with. I worked really hard this year for my 2nd-year exams, and I worked pretty hard over the summer in an internship so I decided I would reward myself with my first "expensive pen". I decided on the Pelikan M805 Stresemann for a couple of reasons. 1 - It looks brilliant. I really like the look of the grey stripes down the barrel. I haven't seen a pen that I like the look of so much. 2 - I had heard that Pelikan
  12. Hi Recently, after watching a few reviews online, I decided that I'd like to get a Pilot Custom 823. I've heard they have great nibs, and I'd love to get a vac filler. The problem is that they're not available from any UK sellers that I know of. And importing from Japan would lead to import costs, and any issues with the pen/nib would be a pain to solve. Has anyone else in the UK imported the 823? If so, how much did the import duty/VAT cost you? Also, when I do figure out the best way to get one, I can't decide between broad or medium. Some people say the medium is just like a western
  13. Hi everyone! I have a pen that writes too wet with Aurora Black and too dry with Waterman Black, so I am looking for an ink whose wetness is somewhere in between, although a bit closer to Aurora Black in terms of wetness. Also, if it is a really dark black that's a plus! Thank you all very much in advance!

    Which Cross Is This?

    Hi folks! I bought this pen at the flea market the other day and after disassembling it and cleaning it I still don't know what model it is, it came with the broken off clip but otherwise writes like a charm. The box it came in said "cross Calais" but I doesn't resemble the pictures of that model I found online,aybe an older version? The nib was originally golden but the paint has mostly come off

    Best #6 Nib Under $30.

    Hi Guys, I'm currently looking for a #6 nib that will go in my Nemosine Fission. At the moment, I'm confused between Goulet nib, Franklin Christoph and Edison nib. I would really love the nib to be buttery smooth although a hint of feedback is not a problem. And also inform me how the Goulet and Franklin - Christoph ships their nibs. The nibs should be safe right ? Ken
  16. Faber-Castell Ambition Review (Medium in Black Resin) I have owned this pen for a year now, and it has been used very heavily during that time. It was the first pen I bought and chose myself and it was a sort-of grail at the time. Th pen's design is very minimalistic. It's all straight and cylindrical. The cap is made of chrome with plastic internals, but it's very heavy. The barrel is made from brushed "precious" resin. After a year, the brushing has worn away, so it looks more polished. Still doesn't look smooth and glossy, though. The pen was breathtaking when it was new. The resin
  17. Good afternoon, I hope everyone is doing well. I am writing to ask for advice, personal experience, and opinions regarding Pilot's VP in Fine and Medium. I am currently in the market for a VP (likely the Blue Carbonesque) and I cannot decide on a Fine or Medium nib. I do not have access to a pen shop to test out nibs so I am asking for your help in deciding. Below is a list of a few of my favorite pens that I currently own and use (maybe you can advise based on what I like/currently use). TWSBI VAC 700- Fine TWSBI Mini- Fine Pilot Metro- Medium Thanks!

  18. The #3776 is a marvellous piece of writing instrument that any passionate fountain pen lover would consider absolutely essential, for building up a collection. Sometimes, it’s one of the top five must haves for people like us, available perhaps at the lowest price given the gold nib. As for me, I never sensed any urgency to get one, as there were a few similar shaped pens (Pilot Custom 74, Sailor 1911 & MB 146) with me. I liked the wide flattish nib and had decided to take a Naka-ai writer later, which would address my desires of getting an urushi lacquered pen in Tamenuri finish. With tim
  19. Today I bought a new Parker IM with a fine nib. This is the first time I buy a fine pen, hence the question. Using the same ink in my new pen and my Waterman Perspective medium (Waterman Mysterious Blue ink, from the bottle for Parker and cartridge for Perspective), I compared the two pens. The Parker creates a very different color that is unusually light. It gets even lighter after writing a line or two. It's also as dry as they come. Comparison sample attached. As I said, the color can get lighter at times. The camera is making it look sharper as well.

    Pilot Custom 74 Nib Exchange

    Hi everyone! Is there anyone who would like to exchange medium (M)/Fine Medium (FM) or Fine (F) nib for a Broad (? I decided that I'd have more use of a finer line. I've had this nib since last month and it is in perfect condition.
  21. Recently I was looking at some of my pens, and realized I have a few I don't use a whole lot. After giving it some thought, I thought I would give a chance to some of the newer members here a chance to acquire this. This is for my Cross Aventura, with a Medium nib and converter. It is a very nice writer and looks good, it just doesn't get the use it deserves. Like I said, I want this to go to a newer member here. Requirements: Must be a Gold Member (minimum of 30 posts and here at least 30 days) but have less than 100 posts when it closes. However it will be open worldwide - CONUS gets fre

    Visconti Royal Brown Fountain Pen

    Hope everyone is ready for the weekend! I am just about to list this beautiful vintage Visconti Royal Brown Fountain Pen on our eBay store and thought I would share it with everyone. Now some of you may be thinking, is this really a Visconti pen (its the first thought that crossed my mind), it sure is! Not only is it definitely unique to many of the Visconti writing instruments you see today but the certificate is signed by Dante Del Vecchio the founder and president of Visconti. I am pretty sure many of you, after viewing the photographs, can quickly guess what I am about to say next. F

    Twsbi Vac 700 Reviewi

    Dear all, Here's my review of the Twsbi Vac 700 with M nib. I have seen another very comprehensive review on here since going to the trouble to write mine, but I feel that the more perspectives are available the better it is for all. Without further ado, here is my review of this pen. http://i.imgur.com/XD5TyEf.jpg http://i.imgur.com/DYdgC9k.jpg http://i.imgur.com/D2e7yvE.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Z0Scpqs.jpg http://i.imgur.com/s6ck6dA.jpg http://i.imgur.com/GQthaXW.jpg http://i.imgur.com/o9dD20G.jpg http://i.imgur.com/CvYIZkX.jpg http://i.imgur
  24. Hope the upload works this time. Kindly bear with me. I am new to this upload tool.
  25. So I just received my Pilot Custom Heritage 92 in medium size but it is too wide and wet for my liking since I use those cheap paper (although it writes beautifully). Just wondering if anyone has Fine nib that you want to trade for my Medium nib or anyone selling their fine nib at a reasonable price.
