  3. Following the discussion if someone's best pens are also their favourite pens I decided to compare my highest-pricepoint* pens: -Montblanc 146 EF ('90s pen and feed with a much earlier 14C EF nib); retails for appr. 550 euros -Pelikan M800 F ('80s pen with 18C nib); retails for appr. 500 euros -Visconti Homo Sapiens Lava Steel Midi F (23k Pd dreamtouch nib); retails for appr. 450 euros -Pilot Justus 95 M (14k nib); retails for appr. 300 euros I bought the MB146 from a local collector at a very attractive price. The M800 was a gracious gift from a friend who bought it new in the '80s and who st
  4. I was thinking of getting a Sailor Pro Gear Slim in Broad nib. Whats keeping me from adding it to the cart is the sweet spot issue about Sailor nibs. In numerous posts I have heard Sailor Medium and broader nibs have a definite "step" to the nib tipping which gives the typical Sailor smoothness-feedback balance. Provided I won't be rotating the pen, the thing is the writing angle. I hold my pen with a standard tripod grip at an angle of 45 degrees. I heard Sailor nibs have to be held at lower angles. Is 45 degrees low enough or is it going to scratch instead of giving its signature feedback?
  5. When visiting Amsterdam today to buy a wooden pen case, I tried to ignore the wonderful Sailor display in the store - and failed. My three Sailor-nibbed pens (a Pro Gear Slim, a 1911 Standard and a Cross Peerless 125) all have M nibs. Not that they're even remotely the same in terms of feel and line width - they're quite different from each other. A Japanese F is too fine/narrow for me; my handwriting is not compatible with such a needle-thin line. I tried a MF and was hooked. Contrary to Sailor's M and B nibs, which tend to have a built-in "rotation police" thanks to their intricate, multi-fa
  6. Very recently I have developed a keen interest in the "ink" side of the fountain pen hobby versus the pen side. The Japan store exclusive inks in particular such as the wonderful Kobe Nagasawa ink line. Up until now my ink choices have tended toward the safe European brands such as Montblanc, which sadly don't offer much in the way of sheen, though do often produce nice shading. My new interest in Sailor inks has seen me build up a small collection of Sailor Pro Gear fountain pens. The Sailor Pro Gear Slim in particular. When you have a million new inks to try, the cartridge converter fi
  7. The Sailor Pro Gear Slim is one of those pens that I have wanted quite early on in the hobby. On paper ( no pun intended ), it has a lot of things going for it; it's attractive and well built, and for many, will probably be one of their first gold-nibbed pens ( my first modern one ). Was it worth the wait? Yes, it was worth the wait, but it was quite a long wait. When I got the pen, I rushed to clean it and ink it up, but there were a couple of problems. First, the nib tines were quite tight and the pen was far too dry to write properly. Obviously, you can adjust that yourself if you feel co
  8. According to some other threads, the Sailor small 14k nibs are mostly interchangeable, thus includes this list of models? 1. Sapporo aka Pro Gear Slim 2. Pro Gear Mini 3. 1911M aka Profit Standard 4. Promenade? I ask because I broke a nib—a very small part of the tip snapped off—but the nib is threaded so I can simply swap in another one, so I would like to make sure I buy the right one.
