  1. My favorite fountain pens are Waterman Carene (medium) and Sailor Pro Gear (broad). I find my Pineider Avatar (medium) and Estie (medium and broad) fountain pens to be pretty/beautiful but not exceptional writers. I enjoy the metal weight/solidity of the Carene and love the lines laid down by my two Watermans (both mediums) and my Sailors (Pro Gear and 1911). Are steel nibs by nature boring (will the Diplomat nib be the same Jowo as my Estie?) or will a Diplomat Excellence nib be both smooth and have character? Would a Diplomat Excellence (Evergreen with broad steel nib) be a good ch
  2. While I do not write too many reviews, posting this here, since I thought this is an interesting pen and there are very few reviews online, unlike the more common Jinhao models like the x450/750/159/992 etc. General notes: This is one of the variants of the Jinhao 650. As far as I can tell, there is another in a red wood variant. This pen cost me the equivalent of $15. Not the cheapest Jinhao or indeed, Chinese pen out there, but still lower than most offerings of ‘upper end’ Chinese brands like penBBS, Moonman, Kaigelu, Lorelei etc., so firmly ‘mid range’ as Chinese offerings go. The pen
  3. Hello Forum, I was in Germany recently and visited the KaDeWe store, the Berlin equivalent of London's Harrods I am told. They have a nice section dedicated to pens, and many German brands were on sale there. I bought 4 cheap to medium range faber Castell pens, ie: Grip (Euro15/-) Essentio (Euro 35/-) - this pen has been reviewed by Brian Goulet but he calls it Basic - maybe the different nakme in USA. E-Motion (Euro 110/-), & Ondoro (Euro 100/-)All pens were B nibs (the size i love). All pens have steel nibs. Back home and on a closer look I see that the nibs are all the same. In Es

    What Is Your Ideal Nib?

    What is your ideal nib? Mine would be a EF 21k flex nib with some feedback,lesser-moderate wetness, and preferably No.9 sized. What would a nib like this cost,and are there nibs like this out there?

  6. I've been recently looking at jumping from relatively cheaper (but still good) pens (like the Lamy Safari and Pilot Metropolitan) all the way to a gold nib pen, specifically the Pilot e95S. But should I get a gold nib pen? Is it a big difference and/or experience from a steel nib? Also, is there a difference between a 14k gold or an 18k gold nib?
  7. Hi FPN! So my parents just got back from vacation in Italy and while they were there they had a chance to stop by the Visconti store in Florence and get me a Rembrandt as a belated birthday present. The pen looks very nice, but I as I took a closer look at the nib under a loupe I noticed that the right tine has just a little bit more tipping material than the left. The results are a mildly scratchy writing experience and depending on how I rotate the pen, different ink flow. The nib is broad, but doesn't always write like a broad should. Is this normal with Visconti steel nibs? And what
