drathbun posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopHello, fellow FPN'rs. I received my Moonman M2 eyedropper a few weeks ago and have been very pleased with it. I posted a review here. However, I just can't get used to the Extra Fine nib it came with. The nib is fine, just WAY too thin for me! So I bought a couple of nib replacements from Bobby Pen on eBay. One is a gold coloured steel FINE nib and the other a plain steel MEDIUM nib. They are cheap, so I thought if the fine wasn't thick enough, I'd just slap in the medium instead. Easy peezy right? Not so much! First, I found a YouTube video from Mr. Bobby himself, going over the pr
When I'm out, I keep most pens in a case in my bag. Sometimes that bag gets tossed onto a couch. Other pens handle that, but the Moonman will burp ink into the cap.

I pulled the trigger on a second Moonman M2. The first was a bit too fine for my tastes so I bought two replacement nibs; one Fine and one Medium. I replaced the EF with the Fine and I like it a lot.

When it arrives, I will replace the nib with the medium and it will be my "blue" Moonman. I love this demonstrator... very cool pen.
drathbun posted a topic in Fountain Pen ReviewsI received my new Moonman M2 eyedropper fountain pen today. I spent the afternoon unboxing, disassembling, cleaning and filling the pen with my new bottle of Iroshizuku Yama-Budo ink. I made a video throughout the process and did a writing sample at the end. I have just finished making the video and have uploaded it to my YouTube channel. Please take a look and tell me what you think! This is my first eyedropper and I was very excited to see how the beautiful magenta ink would behave in this pen!
