That's fantastic news! A piston filling Professional Gear would be a welcome addition. Now if only it came in silver trim rather than gold...

Thank you for your indication. I am sorry I have spelled wrong. March is right.

I've never owned a piston filler, screw cap or a sailor, but I was figuring I'd kill 3 birds with one stone by buying a 2009 Realo. But now I saw this topic, and I'd like to ask. What do you think the differences would be between a PG Realo and a 2009 Realo? Is there any special going on for them, like the first batches will have limited edition ink? How are they capped...

 

I can't really decide though, one of these or a Pelikan MXXXX....

Hi,

 

The 30,000 yen ($332.316)list price is relatively close to the $310 for the 1911 Profit Realo when it first appeared.

 

Any additional information on the nib?

 

Thanks,

Andy

I look forward to it, I always loved the look of the ProGear over the 1911 which looks too much like many pens out there.

The difference between the almost right word & the right word is really a large matter--it's the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.

Minority view: I love my Sailors, especially my Pro Gear, and I'd LOVE to have them with real pistons. However, I'd not be happy with the window showing when the cap is on the pen, destroys the look in my view. As it is, when I want to know how much ink remains in my Sailors (3) I unscrew the section and visually check the cartridge or the converter - usually cart because I use almost exclusively Sailor inks in these.

According to the site: 21金バイカラー仕上げ(大型ペン先)

 

i.e. 21 K two-tone finish (large nib) :bunny01:

That's what I like about these posts--so many different things to notice, like, dislike, wonder about! I'm with Joe on many of these points, but I happen to really like the unusual feature of a window that shows without unscrewing the cap. :thumbup:

The thing is: I really like the shape, form design of the PG, the balance is as perfect as I have seen it anywhere, capped or uncapped, but... it is so small!

I haver to use it capped (not my preference), and still.

If Sailor could only make it 1911 size, but with all the perfect balance intact, that is the Realo I'd buy in a heartbeat!

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
