  1. LINKED BLOG BELOW For more irrelevant pictures , I am sure people like me would click Cross Peerless 125 Tokyo Edition PRELUDE Plurality of singularities Among many other fountain pen lovers, I do retain a high level of adoration for the way the Sailor nibs look, aren’t they just beautiful? Paradoxically enough, there is also a certain distaste, when it comes to my acceptance of their nib smoothness. My humble experience has been mostly with sailor nibs straight from Japan and not the US market. Alas! the glassy smooth angle to manoeuvre writing with the Japanese ones (except the Nagin
  2. Hello. So the nib is marked H-F but behaves very differently. It is more like a European Medium and very wet. Wetness is fine. The line is thick and that is bothering me. I have had this pen for a while. The paper is Black n' Red and ink is Lamy blue. The nib sounds scratchy on most types of papers except some types. Any suggestions ? Nib Adjustment ? Replacement units ? How should an H-F ideally write ? Scratchy fine ? I will appreciate some feedback from Sailor experts.
  3. Brand: Ranga - Model 9B in red/black swirl premium ebonite (design P6 as per their catlog) Ranga pens is an Indian maker of hand turned fountain pens of great quality. As many regulars are aware, the brand was founded by the eponymous Mr. Pandurangan, who has been making fountain pens for half a century and the business is now managed by his son, Mr. Kandan. They are pretty well known for their ebonite and acrylic hand-made models, both in India and the international market. ______________________________________________________________________ Appearance & Design (1-10) - 9.5 I
  4. I recently managed to get my hands on a Sailor Pro Gear Slim Limited Edition Purple Cosmos with B nib. This being my first Sailor I was mega excited to receive it and try it out and the look and feel did not disappoint, however the nib has. Its is inconsistent and scratchy at times and so I think it may be slightly damaged. Its a real disappointment. With this in mind I am wanting to get the opinion of a nib specialist. Can anyone suggest a UK based nibsmith that may be able to help? Thanks FP community.
  5. Cross Peerless 125 Every Cross fountain pen I've ever used thus far was a disappointment. Cross makes good ballpoints and mechanical pencils, but their fountain pens are not for me (though many people love them, so it might have been just bad luck). On the other hand, every Sailor fountain pen I've ever used wrote like a dream. I have two Sailors and they're my favourite pens. Really great, but cosmetically they're rather boring black cigars. Enter the Cross Peerless 125: a magnificent 18k Sailor nib (and Sailor feed) in a classy Cross design. I tried this one today, fell in love with i
  6. Recently I saw a review claiming that the Cross Peerless 125 fountain pen has a Sailor nib. I am very much impressed with the pen and am looking forward to purchasing one. Especially because of the Sailor nib. I contacted A.T. Cross and spoke to their customer service department asking the origin of the nib since it is a 18k gold and not the normal 21kt gold used by Sailor. I was informed by the representative that the nibs are made in China and they have no idea of the manufacturer's name. Does anyone have any information whether the Sailor nib applies to the current supply of the Cross Peerl
  7. Hi I could really use your help. I bought a Sailor 1911 Large with M nib. I, however, don't think the nib is a round M as it should be, the tipping is very strange, reminds me of Naginata togi or Zoom, even though the marking H-M is there. It writes as Zoom does, meaning the line gets thinner the more you angle the pen. It is quite scratchy as well, more so with higher angles. Could this possibly be a mishap at the factory? Is this how regular round Sailor looks like?
