I found a kitchen scale laying around the house tonight so I weighed some inked pens for fun. The silver vermeil section on the brown arco really seems to add some weight! The Titanium Omas Paragon came in at 41.29G Omas new style brown arco Paragon at 49.88G Visconti Millionaire at 55.97G Lamy Studio at 32.96G
Khod_Nevis posted a topic in Japan - AsiaI recently got a Pilot Metropolitan for the first time - and I can see what so many people mean when they've said it is a bargain for the price. It's beautiful, a nice thickness, substantial feel... But for my small hands, a little too substantial - it feels too heavy for me, especially when posted, to be comfortable for long writing sessions. I fell in love with the nib, which is working fantastically, so I unscrewed the section and screwed it into my 78G (formerly having a B stub nib I just couldn't get on with). The 78G is light and comfortable to write with, but it does definitely feel like cheap plastic and the body is thinner than I'd ideally like. Are there any pen bodies I could swap the Metro nib into, that would be heavier/better-quality material than the 78G, but not as heavy(/back-heavy) as the Metro? I was thinking the Prera might fit the bill - can any Prera owners weigh in on its weight and how it feels when posted?
Dear Members, I am sorry if this question has been made before, and if this is the case, please redirect me to the pertinent thread or post. I have two Montblancs 149: (i) a late 80's (Germany in the clip) with an F pen that weighs around 31 g with a plastic piston mechanism and; (ii) an older one, possibly 70's or 80's (W-Germany in the clip) that weighs 37 g and has a BB pen and a metal piston mechanism. Both weights include the cap. Does someone could tell me if this 6 g difference in total weight are expected? Thanks!
