How Smooth Is The Two Tone Jowo Steel Nib?
zicitron posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopHi all, I am eager to order a custom made fountain pen and from my research, there seem to be a lot of options around. For me, both the smoothness of the nib and the design of the pen are equally important. What is the use of having a gorgeous pen which gives a lot of feedback (in my case!) or have hard starts due to a "poor" nib? I have seen that a lot of companies doing custom made pens offer the 2-tone Jowo nib (which is German made, I guess?) to fit into their pens. My question is: Are the 2-tone Jowo nibs as smooth as, say, the nib on a Faber Castell Ondorro? If not, which nib (the smoother the better) would you recommend to match a custom made fountain pen? Also, any good companies you know which are into custom made fountain pens?
Franklin Christoph 19 Size Against Faber Castell Ondorro Size
zicitron posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopHi all, I am very interested with the Franklin Christoph 19 fountain pen. However, my area of concern before I part with the cash is the size of the pen, I already own the Faber Castell Ondorro and I like that pen very much. Can anyone shed some light on how the FC 19 compares with the Ondorro in terms of size? I've read that the FC 19 is "fat" pen. Pictures of the pen is not helping as it is difficult to get a real feel of how "big" the FC 19 is. I would be grateful if any users out there could help on that point. Also, does the FC 19 being "fatter" than the Ondorro mean that it is heavier than the Ondorro?
Carene Or Ondorro? Plz Suggest
a_m posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopI am planning to buy a new FP. And I have shortlisted Waterman Carene and FCD Ondorro. Having used Waterman FPs before, I am bent towards Carene (besides its gorgeous looking nib) But want more unbiased view. I guess there are FPN members who may have experience with both. Pricewise, Ondorro may be half or three fourth of the Carene price depending on the Carene model. Having read so many reviews on the FPN regarding the two FPs, I am in a bit of dilemma. Plz give me one reason which of the two, when I take it out to write I would find AWESOME ! thanks
