  1. Sometimes a new pen comes along and just shouts, “You need to have me now!” Often these pens come from the big name manufacturers with big advertising budgets designed to whip up the desire of people who have never touched the pen in person. As much as I try not to get sucked into the frenzy vortex, it happens sometimes to the best of us. Then there are magnificent pens that come to you unlooked for and seemingly from somewhere you would never expect. The new Wahl-Eversharp Decoband fits into this category. The W-E pen company was resurrected several years ago by co-owner Syd Saperstein (kno

    Kanwrite SuperFlex

    I recently got the Kanwrite superflex. I did not expect that smell though! I wonder if I can wash it off. Anyway, it’s my first flex fountain pen. And since it says super flex, I thought it would really be flexible. You need to have a little pressure to flex it unlike dip nibs. I might need to learn the technique to have the variations of thickness cause so far, what I can do is either thin or thick only. I’m a heavy hand so it all looked like medium nib writing.

    Scored A Nice One

    I've said before that ringtops are often a bargain: I won an auction for a "greenish" gold-filled ringtop (forty bucks) and on arrival, I sent it immediately to Fred Krinke with another pen. What came back was in lovely shape - almost unworn - but what I hadn't expected was the superflex #2 nib. It's one of the best nibs I have and a real bargain even with the cost of repair. My point is that they're out there. W-E made an awful lot of ringtops and I always ask the seller to test the nib. They can usually tell me if it's flexible or not. I hear a lot of whining about not being able to find fle
  4. Hello everyone! I have been going through threads about flex but I really eed some reccomendations. I am much willing to buy a flexible nib fountain pen but I am not sure what would be quite right. So far I have considered: Pilot 912 FA nibPilot 743 FA nibWahl Everharp (vintage flex)Noodler's Ahab with modified feed and Zebra G nibBuut... I do know what would better fit my needs. I heard that the Pilot feeds can not keep up with the flexibility of the nib leading to railroading. Any truth to that?What Pilot pen is more flexible? (Feel free to suggest other pens as well )
  5. I believe it's the nib on their new Decoband series, if I remember correct. Curious if anyone has tried it yet/has thoughts they'd like to share
