From the album: Chinese pensThe PenBBS 308(-20SF light blue ‘Glaze’ demonstrator shown here) and Lingmo Lorelei 019 (with two of the green acrylic variants shown here) are more or less the same pen, and the parts are interchangeable. However, even though both models are fitted with nibs that are slightly upturned at the tip, they seem to write quite differently; and I like the Lorelei's nibs better for the line widths it puts down, even though the PenBBS nib itself seem to be of slightly better quality in terms of material and manufacture.

bobje posted a topic in Of Nibs & TinesThe no. 6 flex nib from Fountain Pen Revolution fits in a Penbbs 456, this one in the absinthe material. The ebonite feed was shaved slightly to fit the plastic section housing. I modified this nib with wing scallops along the lines of the flex nib experiments in the thread below. FPR now sells these ultra flex nibs with wing scallops included. The ink is Diamine umber, and the paper is from MUJI. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/324910-experiments-with-flex/
taike posted a topic in Fountain Pen ReviewsFor a moment there, orange was my color of choice. I think I was coming off a sepia phase, but don't rightly recall. I got myself some Diamine Autumn Oak and took a flyer on J. Herbin Orange Indian. J. Herbin Orange Indien The Autumn Oak was a great success but I could never get the J. Herbin to work for me. None of the pens I tried would make a go of it. It was my first out-and-out ink failure. So when I unboxed the PenBBS 350, I did two things. First, I swapped out the fountain pen nib for the rollerball. Then I filled the pen with Orange Indien. I was being a little perverse. Lik
