  1. I've found myself really liking some larger pens that are either eye-dropper filled or piston filled. Both of these fill methods hold a lot of ink, and both seem prone to burping as the pen warms up in my hand. Sadly, I like to change inks pretty regularly, so always keeping these high volume pens chock full of ink doesn't seem like an attractive idea. Any suggestions for other ways to cut down on burping? Pens I've had it happen with: Airmail/Wality 71J[T], FPR Dilli, Hamraj 1208, and TWSBI Diamond 580. I've not had any trouble with any of my cartridge converter pens - I think the comb

    Staedtler F1 Piston

    Here is the Staedtler F1 piston fill fountain pen, purchased from the regular neighborhood fence. Due to its all-plastic design, I assume it's a 'student' model; it's similar to the Pelikan Go! I couldn't find any info about this pen so I don't know when it was manufactured. This particular pen was sold as NOS (no box) and is in excellent shape. The pen is bright red, sort of fire engine red (just a touch on the orange-y side), with black top/clip, section and blind cap; the only metal is the nib and there are 4 ink windows just below the section. It's just under 5 1/2" capped, 4 7/8" unpost
  3. I bought these pens on a whim @ $10.99 on Amazon because I wanted to try piston-fill fountain pens. I bought the Extra Fine (EF) but they write more like a Fine (F). They aren't the prettiest pens you'll own, but they write beautifully and have a HUGE ink resevoir. I honestly can't even predict how long it can go without being refilled. They come in a nice box and are suitable for gifting. They are currently $8.99 and Prime Day on Amazon is coming up on the 16th. BTW, I've discovered that Prime Day lasts 36 hours, not 24. At this price, I highly recommend these pens by Yakura. They won
  4. I'm eagerly awaiting my first piston-fill pens, a lovely M150 and an M75 Go! Anything in particular I should know or be aware of regarding their care and operation? The Go! is NOS in original box; I'm hoping the instruction sheet will be there, too. Practice on the Go! before moving to the 150? Any advice appreciated. TIA
  5. I haven't bought or used a cartridge converter pen very much for about six years now. The last one that I used regularly was a Duofold Centennial. Even back then, I did note that on the rare occasion that I used a cartridge in place of the converter, the ink flow seemed smoother and generally produced a better writing experience. These days, I wouldn't consider buying a pen if it was offered only as a cartridge converter, and piston fillers obviously don't suffer this problem. Any one else have any thing to say on this topic?
  6. What is the best way in which to remove dry ink from inside a Pelikan M800 or any piston-fill fountain pen? While I can run the nib under water, I do not want to damage the piston by trying to draw water through the piston filling system.

    Noodler's Confusion

    I've seen the noodler's creaper pen for sale on goulet's and the standard piston fill for sale on isellpens. The piston fill on isellpens is cheaper, but they look like the same pen. Are these the same, or are they actually different models?
