  1. After 6 months of work, here is the new version of my retractable nib pen (V5). The external appearance of the pen is like a chimera of Pilot's MYU for its titanium body and Lamy 2000 for its overall shape and clip. On the inside of the pen, the nib retracts behind a spring loaded trap door, the nib mechanism is activated by rotating the section of 3/4 of turn, clockwise. The filling mechanism is a piston filler which acts similarly as FountainBell's Bulkfiller holding a large amount of ink. The nib is a cursive italic which was ground from a pelikan BB stainless steel nib

    Bock 'platinum' Nibs

    Hi All, Just a quick curiosity. I was looking on Bock's website earlier, and they appear to make Platinum nibs labelled Platinum 950(95% platinum). I can't seem to find any info online about them, and there aren't any manufacturers that seem to use Platinum nibs in their pens. Can you purchase these nibs anywhere, and has anyone used them ? If so, what are they like ? I'd be greatly appreciative if anyone could share their knowledge. Cheers

  4. I'll just get right to it, starting with the hard facts: The Acriv Ebowrite Master is an oversized ebonite eyedropper with a crimped titanium nib. It measures 167mm capped, and 149mm uncapped. It posts, but... 149mm uncapped. Here it is next to a Lamy Al-Star: Brimful with ink it weighs 33gm. I paid $40 for the pen, it shipped for free, and was delivered to the US in about 5 weeks from the day I placed the order. It came with a genuine leather, zipper case, that struggles to contain the pen. I'm not a fan of zippered

    My hammered titanium ring

    From the album: Odds and ends

    My hammered titanium ring, when new, that I was going to use as a colour reference of sorts in seeking a new personal ‘signature’ ink to match. Originally posted here: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/350492-seeking-brown-inks-with-strong-violet-or-purple-sheen/

    My hammered titanium ring, one year on

    From the album: Odds and ends

    The colour reference I was going to use, in my quest for a new personal ‘signature’ ink colour (that was ultimately unsuccessful), looks very different one year on. Only the barest hint of violet sheen remains, and the base colour has greatly lightened in the meantime. I guess the shine wore off, and the honeymoon period is over? Or perhaps it's just par for the course for the year 2020? 😬

Clip Clip after install it to Kaweco Ti My next step is to creat a pen by using 3d printing and CNC machine. And I draw some stl file here.

    Bock #8: Titan Vs Gold

    For a possible pending purchase the nib will be a Bock #8. Any user experience on the difference between the gold one and the titanium nib of that size? How do they relate on size (M to B , flex (and perhaps stub or not)? Currently I have a Bock #6 titan B in daily rotation. The new one can use some extra caracter (titan M stub, gold B,...) I suppose it will be possible to testwrite the nibs, but some user experience might be very usefull of course.
  11. http://www.penbbs.com/woshangdetu/penmaterial/133.jpg http://www.penbbs.com/woshangdetu/penmaterial/130.jpg I saw an old topic in a fourm said that Pelikan M800 can be modify into titanium body. It attracted me a lot so I directly find that who can made it. Actually, the 3rd one is made by Grayson Tighe. However, he told my brother said that he is no longer modify Pelikan Pen anymore. But the first and the second one is not made by him. So I want to know who can make Titanium M800 now so that I am willing to buy it.
  12. Dear FPN'ers, Greetings!!!! Over the years We at Ranga Pens have successfully organized many group buys. FPNer's frequently ask us to offer Famous Bock Titanium nibs for their flexible nature .

  13. I don't own any gold nibs right now, except my grandpa's Pelikan P1. All the pens I own are steel ones. Out of curiosity, before trying another gold nibbed pen, I would like to know the difference between these nibs. I know gold nibs add a little bounce to them, whereas steel nibs are nails. Don't know anything about titanium ones though. For example I have a Sailor Shikiori which gives off a very very pleasant feedback I like despite it being a nail. Now if I move on to a Pro Gear, what is going to change?
  14. Because of several requests I received as well as many positive responses to my social media inquiries, now there are two additional versions of the 'Meteor': Pure+ and British Racing Green ! 'Pure+' has a polished shaft and 'British Racing Green' is an addition to the red and blue versions of this unique 3D printed metal pen. http://pjotrpens.com/racinggreen http://pjotrpens.com/sites/pjotrpens.com/files/RacingGreen_h690.jpg
  15. 'Meteor' 3D metal printed fountain pen (and nib) http://pjotrpens.com/sites/pjotrpens.com/files/PjotrMeteor0_x690.jpg I have been away for a while (however, active on the not-so-official FPN page on Fb. Sorry for that! ). Recently I brought my latest design, the 'Meteor' to the market (limited edition). All its metal parts are 3D printed: Barrel, cap: stainless steel (316L)Nib, shaft, clip: titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V)There are some variants: Pure Pure+ (shaft polished) Merlot Red (also cap and barrel polished/colored) Royal Blue (also cap and barrel polished/colored) Soon: Britisch Rac

I recently exhanged the nib in my Kaigelu 316 pen with a Titanium Bock nib from Beaufort Ink (UK). http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah12/phzervas/93F82412-A163-48E1-88BB-E5B4EE7B8D44_zpsbuvqysnl.jpg http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah12/phzervas/2B0A8CA6-CA0B-47DF-93CF-76770C392C45_zpsslyblstm.jpg http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah12/phzervas/3AB1E03C-FFDA-4592-9E5D-D967C4E528BD_zpsrgsjhhi3.jpg http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah12/phzervas/D0D6918C-DC5F-4D6B-9047-85330A442456_zpsp0hhmnri.jpg http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah12/phzervas/0DFF4BB4-911C-481C-BAA2-AF4206DD2EC7_
  17. My name is Jeremiah, and I am a designer of consumer goods. I have manufactured one of many of the pens I have designed (I have to do them one at a time due to costs associated with the process). Id like to know what the general initial impression is of the design, materials, color, etc.? Thank you for any positive and/or negative feedback!
  18. I just got my Ensso Piuma in the mail today so Im excited! Heres my small titanium collection. Theres a Namisu Nova and new Ensso Piuma both with Ti Bock nibs. The Namisu in broad (slightly re ground) and a medium on the Ensso. Also an Omas DLC bronze titanium Paragon in fine breathed on to write like a wet medium and an Inka titanium body survival ballpoint. I think the Inka has a space pen refill. Oddly enough the cap and section threads on the Namisu and Ensso are the same. The cap from the Ensso will thread to the Namisu but the cap diameter is a little smaller. The Ensso section
  19. Dear FPN members, After 3 years of research, experiments and a little trial and error, I was able to reveal my next titanium, 3D printed fountain pen, the Spica Virginis. It resembles a futuristic impression of a wheat spike. It is named after the brightest star in the constellation Virgo, where the virgin holds a bundle of spikes. Most parts are 3D printed, including its fully functional nib and pen case. http://pjotrpens.com/downloads/press/tumb/Pjotr_SpicaVirginis_WhiteBG_690.jpg http://pjotrpens.com/sites/pjotrpens.com/files/downloads/press/tumb/Pjotr_SpicaVirginis_Side2_690w.jpg S
  20. Does anyone have one? Ive been kicking around the idea of picking up a Nakaya for years but in ebonite/urushi. That seems more fitting to the Japanese art of pen making. I would absolutely love to pick up that titanium Piccolo as well but the price completely mystifies me. They are going for roughly $1k without options! Hundreds more than a urushi Naka-ai! There are a few titanium pens in my collection that are in the Japanese style but those have been no more than $200. I understand you get a great gold nib with the Nakaya and a clip but am I missing something here? I dont believe Nak
  21. I just picked up one of these about a week or so ago. Ive been trying to get one for almost 6 months now and out of nowhere, one was available from Bryant at a fair price these days. I jumped on it and pulled the trigger! Ive only started collecting Omas pens about 2 years ago and have had to make up ground quickly. First impression. This pen is extremely elegant with the diamond like carbon purple/bronze color and rose gold trim! Very exquisite! The nib and trim is a pink gold instead of red gold and very fitting for the look of the whole package. When I first saw it, I felt that it
  22. Massdrop is offering the titanium version of the Ensso Piuma with a titanium nib. The pen is available in both stone-washed and polished titanium. The titanium nibs available are medium and extra-fine. Its a fantastic deal, see for yourself.
  23. I've fulfilled a pen bucket list item tonight my friends! I've been actively bidding on/searching for an Omas Titanium Paragon in bronze PVD for 6 months now. There's a seller on eBay that seems to have several of these but with the diamond encrusted cap band. He has the listed buy it now for an insane price but every few months, he'll put one up on auction no reserve. I've been tracking prices to plan my bids accordingly but prices just keep going up exponentially! Pen emporium has one of these listed without the diamond cap band for a fixed price but they want about the last sale price for o

  25. My Namisu Nova came in the other day. I picked up the solid titanium model along with the titanium Bock nib option in medium. First impression, its a very understated pen in the stonewashed finish. Maybe a little too understated. I put a light hand polish on it to spice things up a bit. The pen looks great with a bit of shine too it! I left the grit blasted finish on the nib alone. It mixes well with the rest of the pen now. Looks 100% better with a slight polish on the body and cap. The writing experience is really very nice! This is my first Ti nib pen and I really like this nib.
