We can finally announce that we are updating the 2018 summer line with 4 new pens all available now. 1 - The Venvstas Stylo, a new cartridge converter pen that is a new design that will allow you to use ANY cartridge/converter on the market. The pen is made in Stainless steel and carbon fiber or fiber glass. 2 - The new Venvstas EDC, an everyday carry piston fountain pen that carries a lot of style and ink! 3 - A new version of the Magna, the Magna Black Edition, in glossy lacquered fiberglass, with a new, revised piston system that will allow for more ink in less space! 4 - The all new Alpha Déesse, a bigger version of the Iconic Alpha fountain pen that is 1mm larger in diameter, and 20mm longer. This new version will allow for ANY long/short cartridge converter on the market. Check them out! This summer the best design on the business is getting better!
I have three stylos in my large FP collection, two Mabie Todd Long Short, and a very early AT Cross. How smooth should these feel on the paper, or how smooth can they be? They aren't exactly scratchy, but they are kind of "toothy" The AT Cross has no protruding needle - the needle stays inside. It seems to need a fairly vertical writing angle, but writes well. I would imagine this to be normal based ont the physics of the pen, but I have nothing to compare it to. The Mabie Todds have protruding needles that are on springs, which seems to allow the pen to be used at an angle more like 45 degrees, but of course there is some vague feel of the needle on paper. So, can any fans of vintage stylos tell me more about how old stylos are supposed to perform, and how much can I expect from them. They are not really for using much, but I still enjoy getting all my pens are tuned up as possible regardless of whether or not they will be actually used in the future.
Quintane posted a topic in USA - North AmericaJoseph Gibert is not just a book and stationary store in Paris. Once it made fountain pens with its name. The following is an advertisement from a "cahier" purchased in Paris in 1936 by José Gaos, disciple of Ortega y Gasset, prolific translator of German philosophy into Spanish, a philosopher himself and renowned teacher of philosophy, exiled in Mexico in 1938. In 1936-1937 he was commissioned to Paris and other countries by the government of the Spanish Republic during the Civil War. Does anyone has seen, or possess, one of these interesting Joseph Gibert stylos? Something to say about them? I would love to see a real one, and more of course to be able to write a line with it!!
