    (Please Vote) Has Your Twsbi Cracked?

    Having heard so many things about TWSBI pens cracking, I thought a poll would be of some use in clearing up the matter with some (hopefully) accurate and representative results. Perhaps we will even be able to see if TWSBI's efforts to improve the issue have in fact been effective, and to see if their current line up still suffers from this problem. Please vote, and do so honestly. If done correctly, I have a feeling this poll could become a valuable resource.
  2. With the flex nib and the upcoming curved nib starting off the expression series, do you speculate that the music nib will also be available as an Expression Nib at some point? I don't see myself paying for the Bespoke nib. Hoping that it will come to the Expression series is the best I could hope for.
  3. So, what do you like? I’d just like to know your opinion. I personally prefer flat ends, but tell me what you like!
  4. Please help beginners! Things like this are things that I’m sure many beginners look at to see which pen to first buy. Thank you to all who participate!
  5. Hey guys. I just recently got into fountain pens and *instantly* fell in love. I can't get enough of it. That said, I'd like to (hopefully) start a massive thread getting to know what some of everyone's favorite inks are. I have been sampling inks like crazy in the last two weeks and I would love to add to the collection; as well as help others decide what inks they might want to try out themselves, so... To start us off, out of the ones I've sampled so far (only have sampled about 10 out of the 40 I ordered so just listing the favorites of the ones I know), my favorites are: Pilot Iroshizuku: "Kon-Peki" and "Momiji" Noodler's: "Apache Sunset" Diamine: "Flamingo Pink" Fire away!
  6. In the previous poll topic I posted, I asked what people say to you when you use your fountain pen in the public. The reasoning for asking this was because I wanted to see the public's reaction to fountain pens and their users. The common perception is "posh", but what do people think of them, personally? Do they even care? A responder to the forum, jetsam, wrote as a response that this made him ask himself why he uses fountain pens, since we are bombarded with alternative choices, and then suggested I put this pseudo-existential question as a poll as well. I'm sure there are about as many reasons as there are users, but I figured it's worth thinking about it. Fountain pens are high maintenance (compared to alternatives anyway) and are often luxury items, since it's not really necessary to carry out your day-to-day tasks. It's not just for older generations either, since we have teenagers on here. My main reason is because I have very weak writing pressure, and I need ink to flow upon contact, not upon pressure. Not only that, I appreciate the variety of nibs and the colours a fountain pen can bring as options. What are your reasons?
  7. No 'Topic Poll" button appeared when I started this topic. Perhaps it is excluded in this sub-forum. We shall have to do it by hand. I see irregular mention of Onotos on the forums, from people scattered across continents. It is evident from some of the replies that there are some with significant experience of them, probably with current or past collections. So, I am curious to discover more. How many Onotos do you own? Is the number static, rising or falling? Any particular focus on them or comments? For my part they currently stand as the modal point of my collection, albeit not by much. Aurora and Waterman are close behind. I started on them early, and still pick them up occasionally, preferring those needing some repair these days because I find that entertaining. Had I been able to start the poll, my divisions were going to be something like: A. 1 B. 2 C. 3-5 D. 6-9 E. 10-15 F. 16-24 G. 25-40 H. 41+ I fall in the sixth of those categories, F, with 21 currently if I include one on its way. Not all of those are currently functional, but they will be.
  8. Hi all! I'd like to introduce you to my site, oakenreed.com! Admittedly, the site I created is not solely based on fountain pens, but it was undoubtedly the initial goal. I will soon be reviewing a few pens and inks I've accrued over the past couple of years, from recommendations from you all or otherwise. I'm currently having a giveaway, but while my PIF is being moderated over there, please head on over and check it out for yourself. I also tend to write poetry and stories, so if that appeals, I hope to see you there!

    Parker '51' Aerometric Color Poll

    Hi All- I got to thinking the other night (while trying to fall asleep) what was my least favorite '51' Aero color and thought it would be interesting to see what all of you thought... so, which is your least favorite?

    Pocket Pen Poll

    They all look so good. Like a can of Pringles potato chips, you can't have just one. But if you could only choose one Japan - Asia pocket pen, which would you choose. Once you cast your vote, please take a few minutes and post why you choose the pen you did.
  11. I was reading the "What Pens Are You Using At Work This Week" thread and noticed that many members do not use waterproof ink at work. This puzzles me, as I make it a point to only use fully waterproof ink at work like Noodler's 54th, Noodler's Black, and Sailor Nano-black. I once spilled a cup of coffee on an assignment written in completely non-waterproof ink (Diamines, Iroshizukus, etc) and vowed never to make the same mistake. I'm curious to know whether you primarily use waterproof ink at work. Please only consider your main ink (even if you rotate, think about the ones you usually rotate between). For instance, I primarily use 54th Mass but keep pens filled with Diamine Oxblood and Sailor Apricot for highlighting purposes. I would mark "Fully Waterproof ink" on the first question and "Yes" on the second. Oh, and please feel free to write a bit about why you use the inks you use at work! (I honestly never thought I would use my social science training in survey design for a fountain pen related post...)

    Sailor Poll

    Sorry for all of these polls. I hope that nobody minds them. I wasn't sure if this was ever done before in this format, but I was wondering about other people's experiences with Sailor nibs. I've had a great experience with them, but I've also heard of many bad ones. I would rather not have this degenerate into Sailor is the best or Sailor is overrated or so and so is much better than Sailor, but discussion is of course welcome. Feel free to say what you chose for the poll and what pen/which pens you've had experience with? I apologize for the length of the poll! I hope it's not too tedious. I'm curious as to how what I like compares to the rest of FPN as a whole, so I've been posting a lot of polls lately.
  13. So, I've decided to get me one of these. I can't really make up my mind between Forbidden City, Olde Salem or Victory Garden, although I've put the other colours in my poll too. I'll give it a few hours then order away!
