    Nakaya Info Kuro Tamenuri Finish

    I am right now in the market for a Nakaya pen. Specifically the portable writer and I want to get some more information about the finish of the pen before I feel comfortable buying it. The main question I have is really about how the finish looks in person compared to some photos I've seen of it. In some photos it looks really wonderful and black with bright red accents. However sometimes it looks like more of a reddish brown throughout. I was wondering what exactly everyone thought about this finish and how it looks. Pictures would really be helpful. The second thing I want to know is how

    Lamy Clip 'cap Rub' Aesthetic Wear

    Hello fellow Lamy fans on FPN! I am a long time Lamy user and a diehard fan. I just have a question for you about one of the ways your Lamys may wear and tear over time (pens with wear listed in brackets). Between my Logos (brushed and stainless steel), Al-Stars, Lxs, and Studios (black) I have noticed that within around 18-24 months of use, the clip rubs a fine line just underneath its point of contact with the cap with a varying degree of aesthetic wear. On the Logos regardless of style it rubs a fine clear line (way more noticeable on the brushed one making that one look almost like the m
  3. Title pretty self explanatory. I have heard that threads made of differing materials tend to have the softer threads wear out over time. I know that many pen companies do this with pretty much their entire line (such as Sailor with there metal section threads screwing into their resin/ebonite barrels). Others do it with particular models (like Visconti & OMAS with certain metal sectioned pens that screw into resin caps). Does this cause the softer material to wear out over time? Is this a poor design choice?
  4. Hi all, Congrats to those who have bought a 1912, I have had mine since the 10th Aug '13 with a fine nib and I love it, it writes fantastically, could not be happier with the performance... I am having some problems with quite obvious wear in a ring all the way around the body the pen, the ring is about 34mm from the cap threads at the 'top' of the pen, or 76mm from the 'bottom' / piston end. It is covered by the cap when it's on place. Based on the photo below (thanks to KJY) I think it is around the metal (? - shows up as non-translucent on the IR) ring which seems to be rubber coated o
  5. I've heard it said that fountain pen nibs "wear in" to the angle you use to write with them (at least in older, softer nibs), and that you should avoid loaning out your pens because the person you give it to will write at another angle and give it a second wear point, ruining the nib. Is this true? Are you able to tell by looking at a nib where the wear point is? If this is true, how common is this phenomenon? (Should I loan my pens out or not?) I collect pens from the early-mid 20th century, so should I be concerned with this?
