  1. I have a lovely MB Fountain Pen, but I never use it any more as I work entirely paperless. I would like to convert it to a stylus for my iPad; does anyone know if this is possible and if so, how would I go about doing it? (PS I'm aware that MB have recently released two new styluses, but I don't want to buy a new product, just convert my existing one)
  2. In my quest for a fountain pen/stylus combo, I ran down the Online Icone, and ordered one from Germany. This was delivered promptly, in its presentation box. So far, I'm completely satisfied with the order. The Online Icone is a very sleek aluminium design, with a choice of colours for the brushed metal cap. Obviously, the style won't suit everyone - you could describe it as Art Deco - but I'm perfectly happy with it. Plus, build quality is high: materials feel good quality, and the cap clicks firmly onto the barrel. This may be a heavier pen for some tastes, especially with the cap on while writing, but the barrel is slender, and of course you don't have to use the cap. The clip, incidentally, is well up on the cap, which does make for a better fit in your pocket. The stylus tip of the pen is excellent. It's metal mesh rather than cheaper rubber, and screws off for replacement. It's one of the best styluses I've used for onscreen writing. The metal mesh also means that the stylus tip suits the rest of the pen very well. And as a pen? The Icone uses Standard ink cartridges. As someone who likes a thinner nib, I'm more than happy with its tip, and its balance. Online quotes a 5-year guarantee on the iridium nib. At EUR 44.95, I'd favour the Online Icone as a pen in any case. With the stylus option as well, it's an excellent buy, and recommended.
  3. I'm a writer and do most of my writing onscreen nowadays using a stylus and handwriting recognition. I really miss my fountain pen of old, though. Does anyone have any recommendations for a brand of fountain pen that also has a stylus? Or can anyone recommend a manufacturer who would create a bespoke pen to order? Thanks!
  4. I'd been looking for some time for a combination fountain pen and stylus. Via Google, I ran down a German manufacturer, ONLINE (https://www.online-pen.de), and a stockist in Switzerland. On a recent trip to Geneva, I picked up one of the ONLINE Switch Plus stylus/fountain pen combinations (https://www.online-pen.de/shop/catalogsearch/result/?q=switch+plus). Here are my impressions. For one thing, ONLINE seems to be targeting the youth market with the Switch Plus - specifically the schools market that is also learning handwriting and calligraphy (at least in Germany and elsewhere in Europe). The Switch Plus line is made in cheap and cheerful plastic, in a range of colours with mix-and-match heads. Even the ink capsules are provided with a choice of colours which have nothing to do with the ink inside, but are designed to show through a little window in the barrel. Replacement nibs are also available, but I'm not clear whether these come in any other styles or sizes than the basic nib. All the same, the Switch Plus is perfectly comfortable and practical as a fountain pen. The barrel may be thicker than some prefer, but that fits it very well as a stylus, and I don't find that my handwriting suffers at all, not least because it's very light. The construction seems pretty practical and robust, and at this price point, no one is going to complain if they do need to buy a new nib. Most models retail for around 15 Euros or equivalent. I'll continue to dream of my perfect tortoiseshell fountain pen/stylus, but for now, the ONLINE Switch Plus, will do just fine.
  5. I know what you're going to say... what is a story about using a stylus on a tablet doing here? I thought the following article was an interesting discussion on a tech site. BTW, this comes after a rumor that Apple might be developing an Apple stylus. Stylus on tablet vs pen on paper. You know what you would use, right? :-) http://www.imore.com/core-my-ipad-sketchbook-dilemma
  6. I came across a few FP models that have a stylus. Do you use the stylus on your fountain pen ? Would you buy a FP with a stylus ? I'm working on a FP design and would like to get your feeling on this. Thank you! H-G
  7. Does anyone have any experience with this pen? It is a very intriguing pen for me as an everyday, out-in-the-world pen. I'd love to know how it performs as a fountain pen though before I start to lust after it too much. Here's a link to it on Goulet (no affiliation) in case you don't know what pen I'm talking about.
  8. Hello everyone! My lady friend would like a fountain pen with a stylus on it. There are a few pens that exist already: Monteverde Invincia Stylus Fountain Pen - beautiful Delta Vintage Stylus Fountain Pen - a little to rich for my blood, and not as nice as Monteverde's I like the Monteverde Invincia Stylus, but she really would like a demonstrator fountain pen. Does anyone know any stylus+fountain pen combos that are demonstrators? Even if not, does anyone know of any other fountain pen + stylus pens? Tom
