VENVSTAS posted a topic in Market WatchHello pen friends, this time a very original pen, Originally designed to be used on the airplane and fitted into an specific type of notebook, as I was flying up to 3 times a month from Paris to Berlin and sometimes other places to teach some design and architectural design somewhere in Germany, I did this pen for my personal use, after a while, some of my students got the like of the pen as seeing me using it, and I did a few for them. I had lots of questions about it on the email. so I did a video on Youtube. I don't like doing videos but I feel these designs need to have some explanations, more information for you to see them better. Note that this is not a pen for the plane, its the pen I did for me for the plane, so comments of the like of "this pen would not be suited for a plane trip because the clip and this and this and that" do not apply, it was a bespoke pen I did for my use, as I do my own stuff. I was not expecting anybody else to like the pen, due to fact that is a "strange pen" I wanted to make a pen with a cap so big that I wouldn't loose it and add grip for the pen is needed I dont know of any cap designed for that.... , a piston, as I dont like cartridges, it had to post and no clip whatsoever as I don't like clips. I never use them, the image of a pocket with a clip was never my thing. But, seems people like the pen so I give more information on it. As the piston was another thing I wanted the one on the pen to be way over a poor 1.0ml, so this one has almost 2ml in a very streamlined body, as I like very thin pens. This has to do with the fact that Im more of a pencil guy when drawing, but I use fountain pens exclusively when on the ink business. I have thicker designs, like the "Magna" but I prefer constant thin cylindrical pens. anyway, I'll made a video on "hefty pens" as I have pilled quite a number of designs now in a kingdom that was mostly streamlined high ink capacity, when not cc pens. Although one may think that a traveling pen should be a cc pen,the fact is that converters have really little ink, I dont like to use cartridges as I feel a bit bad about just adding more plastic to the trash for a few drops of ink, and I think that most piston fillers out there are struggling to be 1.0 to 1.2ml of ink (this has to do to the fact that some makers do not want to make telescopic pistons anymore, even when some of them are charging around 1000 for a mass produced pen, and their designs were, well, made originally for the very nice telescopic pistons, that as far as I know, nobody is making them) I don't make them either, but I managed to put the almost 2.0ml on the small pen to just have enough ink to do my job and get back home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01zwRbKHUp8 https://www.venvstas.com/avant-garde thanks!
VENVSTAS posted a topic in Market Watchjust a message to present the video channel that is a complement of the new re designed site, http://www.venvstas.com Although we're going to be sending some pens for reviews (there's a post on that) in order to offer more information due to the fact that what is online is always from the same pens and models that have been re-designed, discontinued or both, and that the fact that everything you put online stays there, the idea was to provide an alternative by making a new channel. We don't want to make a site tampered with videos, the design of the site (still under development) follows that of the pens, so the alternative is to place a channel in utube, to offer a complement for the information that's already there. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUQ9lT1PZrDjbxRHyFbWhOQ This is the link with different types of videos on pens and/or their accessories. I hope that will give you a broader idea on the pens, and tings, because at the end everything has a different logic, materials and aesthetics, systems, which are out of the norm. Take a look, and thank you. maybe it's also something that may add to what's your pen literacy, who knows, Quality of the videos and timing will be improved, I'll be updating the videos information and characteristics on the products to not just let old content to pile up. You can subscribe. comments are out because we cannot afford to take much energy on the different medias, so if any question, just go directly to the inbox firstname.lastname@example.org thanks again. I left you here with one sketch to show you how starts a design of any of these things.
