VENVSTAS posted a topic in Market WatchHello pen friends, this time a very original pen, Originally designed to be used on the airplane and fitted into an specific type of notebook, as I was flying up to 3 times a month from Paris to Berlin and sometimes other places to teach some design and architectural design somewhere in Germany, I did this pen for my personal use, after a while, some of my students got the like of the pen as seeing me using it, and I did a few for them. I had lots of questions about it on the email. so I did a video on Youtube. I don't like doing videos but I feel these designs need to have some explanations, more information for you to see them better. Note that this is not a pen for the plane, its the pen I did for me for the plane, so comments of the like of "this pen would not be suited for a plane trip because the clip and this and this and that" do not apply, it was a bespoke pen I did for my use, as I do my own stuff. I was not expecting anybody else to like the pen, due to fact that is a "strange pen" I wanted to make a pen with a cap so big that I wouldn't loose it and add grip for the pen is needed I dont know of any cap designed for that.... , a piston, as I dont like cartridges, it had to post and no clip whatsoever as I don't like clips. I never use them, the image of a pocket with a clip was never my thing. But, seems people like the pen so I give more information on it. As the piston was another thing I wanted the one on the pen to be way over a poor 1.0ml, so this one has almost 2ml in a very streamlined body, as I like very thin pens. This has to do with the fact that Im more of a pencil guy when drawing, but I use fountain pens exclusively when on the ink business. I have thicker designs, like the "Magna" but I prefer constant thin cylindrical pens. anyway, I'll made a video on "hefty pens" as I have pilled quite a number of designs now in a kingdom that was mostly streamlined high ink capacity, when not cc pens. Although one may think that a traveling pen should be a cc pen,the fact is that converters have really little ink, I dont like to use cartridges as I feel a bit bad about just adding more plastic to the trash for a few drops of ink, and I think that most piston fillers out there are struggling to be 1.0 to 1.2ml of ink (this has to do to the fact that some makers do not want to make telescopic pistons anymore, even when some of them are charging around 1000 for a mass produced pen, and their designs were, well, made originally for the very nice telescopic pistons, that as far as I know, nobody is making them) I don't make them either, but I managed to put the almost 2.0ml on the small pen to just have enough ink to do my job and get back home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01zwRbKHUp8 https://www.venvstas.com/avant-garde thanks!
