    Can I Twist A Twist?

    I recently received a Pelikan Twist I ordered. Very nice pen, but I have discovered the German notion of how and specifically where I should hold a pen section is at opposition to where my hand wants to hold it. I will not argue, nor am I the slightest bit interested, in which of us is "right". My question is, can I move the nib unit so that the slit is lined up with a flat section of the grip, instead of aligned to a point of the triangle as it is now. I have given it a moderate twist, without much affect, but I don't want to apply serious persuasion to it without knowing if that will
  2. Hello everyone, I have a new Montegrappa Passione ballpoint that I could use some help with. This is a twist actuated ballpoint. When the ink cartridge is retracted, there is a bit of play in the action before there starts to be resistance. As it wiggles, I can feel a small pop right before the cartridge starts to extend. There is still play in the cap/rear of the pen when the ink cartridge is extended also, though not as severe. Is this something inherent to twist ballpoints or should it be tight with no play? Is there anything I can do to tighten up the cap and remove the play? Li
  3. The tryst with fountain pens never ends. To add one of the heavier retractable ones in my collection, I had two choices - Fermo or a Dialog 3. And I went with the dialog 3 . Here goes a review for the same. I have also replicated the content with some additional pictures in my blog as the image upload size is limited by this free photo-sharing tool and it re-sizes images to a thumbnail size after a short while. Below is a link to the same: LAMY Dialog 3 Review Motivation A collection of fountain pens is never complete without the retractable ones in your armoury. And the ones which imm
  4. I recently stumbled upon a classified listing for NOS stationery items, among those, there are some Pelikan Pelikano P10 fountain pens and some Pelikan Twist P20 ballpoint/ fountain pen sets. According to the seller these products were manufactured sometime in the late 80s or early 90s and all have their original boxes, cartridges and documentation. I really don't have much of an experience with Pelikan pens, so I would like to know if both of these pens are good buys or if I should look somewhere else? They are going for about $20 and I plan to use them as everyday writers. Thanks for y

    Nakaya Decapod Versus Twist

    I am at a fork in the road. The sign on the left reads "Decapod;" the sign on the right reads "Decapod Twist." I have been using measurements from Nakaya's site to gauge the fit of the Twist. According to the chart, the Decapod seems to be one of the lighter models at 17g, while the larger Twist weighs in at 20g, the same as a Portable or Piccolo. Based on photos, it seems ever so slightly longer yet substantially thicker than the Decapod. I enjoy a slim, lightweight pen. For reference, I would say the Portable is ideal. I also have a Naka-ai, which I find a bit on the heavy side. For th
  6. My Parker Arrow twist BP is missing the cylinder that screws over the refill that the cap goes over. Anyone know how to get this part please? Cheers, Adam

Attach photo: Please, someone know of a place to get the parts? How i can get that missing part? Thank´s in advance, Pedro Miguel Silva

    Twist Vs. Slide Converter

    Hi, I have few questions for you. A converter is what allows a fountain pen to use a bottled ink. Right? My Parker Sonnet came with a slide converter with a ball inside. But I saw other kinds of converters in YouTube. What is the difference between a twist and a slide converter? What are pros and cons of each? Which one do you prefer for my Sonnet? Thank you very much in advance. -William S. Park
