  1. Too bad most of the FPN folks won't look in this forum to see this. Their loss! Macniven & Cameron, Made in Great Britain, Waverly Series No P 5 This is a casein pen (based on smell while I sanded it down to restore the color and finish). Small pen, 4 1/2 inches capped, posts to a nice usable 5 5/8 size. It came to me in a sorry state with a bent nib, barrel thread crack (now sleeved internally), and very dark, brown and crackly on the surface. I was just so drawn to the pattern I had to buy it and put in some work to restore it! Unfortunately, I know nothing about the brand,
  2. I am not a lefty but have a friend who is, and is intrigued, I'm not sure if by fountain pens or just worried about my sanity with (only) 25 inks and pens. I have read and watched videos about lefties and writing, pushing vs pulling, my sincere commiserations, I didn't know it could be such an ordeal. I have some specific questions, in particular for lefty overwriters: What is your favorite pen (fountain or other)? Why? I've read about the advantages of quicker drying inks; do you prefer rollerballs? Gel pens? Are there more comfortable pens for lefty overwriters? What aspects to look for?

  4. Hello again to all my FP friends! I just wanted to share some writing samples of the 4 nibs I had custom ground by fpnibs.com (no affiliation, just a satisfied customer). Their work is fantastic, reasonably priced, and with excellent service. These nibs all write wonderfully. The 1.1 Oblique Cursive Italic is especially dreamy and now a daily user for me.
  5. I've reviewed some old threads on waverly/upturned nib recommendations and most of the suggestions are either for the Pilot WA nibs on the Custom series of pens OR trying to find a vintage sheaffer. Does anyone know of any new contemporary alternatives, especially in a #6 size nib (gold or steel)?
  6. I was thinking about getting a Pilot with a WA (Waverly) nib and was wondering if any of you have used it and compared it with the writing experience of a Sheaffer Triumph nib, which has that slight upturned nib as well. I think that is called a "Waverly" type of nib though I don't think Sheaffer called it as such. I've seen the excellent thread where there's a visual comparison of the Triumph nib with the Pilot WA nib but I was wondering about comparing the feel of writing of one versus the other. (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/223586-pilot-custom-742-waverly-nib/) I have a
  7. Here's my review of Pilot's Waverly nib: http://tina-koyama.blogspot.com/2015/10/product-review-pilot-waverly-nib.html Like the Pilot Posting nib, I think the Waverly is a fantastic yet under-rated and under-discussed nib. Though it's not quite as fine as the Posting nib (which I find to be just as fine as my Pilot Falcon/Elabo soft EF), it's even smoother. It's designed to write on crappy, rough, bumpy paper (although the question is, why? :-) ), and I've therefore found it useful when drawing on cold press watercolor paper. But it's also a dream on ordinary smooth paper!
