  1. Amazon.com.au is offering the Pilot Falcon Collection fountain pen in Red (resin) with Rhodium Accents and Soft Fine Nib ships from and sold by Amazon US for A$157.11 (inclusive of GST) at the moment. Delivery is free if you have Prime membership with Amazon Australia. Or you could buy it directly on Amazon.com which these days has gone back to being willing to ship to Australia delivery addresses if it is also the actual seller of the products for US$99.99, plus US$5.50 to ship to Australia (fair enough), then another 10% of that subtotal for GST, bringing the total to US$116.04, which
  2. Hello all! I hope you can help me out. I recently bought a Sailor Profit Standard MF with a 21k nib and a Platinum 3776 Chartres Blue with a Soft Fine 14k nib. Problem is, my platinum skips a lot and feels scratchy while writing. I need to apply some pressure in order for the nib not to skip while writing. I also tried the Sailor, and it is a completely different experience, it has a little bit of feedback but writes smoothly. I know this terms are very subjective, but at least I can tell you the feeling of the comparison. Sailor's nib feels great, like feedback, whilst the platinum nib fe

    Soft Fine Nib Vs Fa Nib Help

    Hello, I have a question regarding Pilot #10 Soft Fine nib vs. FA nib. After researching, I've purchased the Pilot Custom Heritage 912 with FA nib. However, I was much disappointment as it was difficult (probably due to being inexperienced with flex nibs, although I did try out a Noodlers flex nib...yes, I'm aware it does not compare to a real flex nib) for everyday handwriting as the lines were consistently too thick with the slightest pressure. So I'm planning on purchasing the same pen with either a Fine or Soft fine nib. What I can't gather from researching (google and YouTube), how
  5. Hi All, just wondering if the rhodium-plated version of the Chartres blue pen was available in an SF nib .... I'm interested in trying this nib. I've already got a gold-plated Burgougne and wanted a different look for the Chartres. Is it possible?
  6. Hey all, So I am pretty new at fountain pens. I currently only have 3 pens, but only really use 1 at the moment. Pens: Pilot Metro (current and favorite atm) Pilot Custom 74 TWSBI Vac 700 Reason I'm posting is I am looking for local groups I can travel to to meet new people, and a reliable repair guy for FP's. Both my Custom 74 and Vac 700 need Nib flow adjustment and I am too afraid to mess something up on my new pens!! I actually have not really been able to write with the 74 or 700 because the tines are too taught/close together so i have to exert too much force to get a nice flow
  7. Really contemplating on purchasing a Pilot/Namiki Falcon. Never owned a gold nib before and was wondering if you guys could help me out in selecting the right nib size. So long story short, the very first fountain pen I purchased was a Pilot DPN-70 Desk pen (almost similar to the platinum carbon desk pen). I really adore the line it lays down but it tends to be a little scratchy (i eventually smoothened it with mylar and it writes like a dream, but writes with a thicker and wetter line). I will be buying a namiki falcon but I have absolutely no idea as to which nib size I should buy, should I
  8. Hi everyone, I plan on going to my first pen show sometime soon. There's one coming up in San Francisco that's relatively close to where I live. What should I expect at the pen show and how should I prepare? What kind of pens show up there? Is there any sort of etiquette I should follow? I am a beginning collector that has recently ventured into the Lamy 2000, Pilot VP/Decimo, Platinum #3776, Pelikan M200 range of pens. I have never spent more than $150 on a pen and have no experience with vintage pens. I would appreciate any tips or suggestions. Thanks!
