Something I am going to try.

Special thanks for your very pleasing handwriting. May we know the pen and nib used ?

I'm wondering how much pressure you need to use to get that kind of line variation with a Serwex. Do you know if it's comparable to a Noodler's flex pen?

I agree,. that Golden Brown really compliments your perfect handwriting. I love my new Dilli from Serwex as well. I have not tried the Serwex pen they sent to me as a freebie yet. I like the Dilli and Serwex better than the Noodler's. It seems capable of more flex and it's smoother to write with. Oh, and the Serwex freebie is a piston filler!!!!

Hi Alexandra, I have to use a reasonable amount of pressure to get that level of flex out of the Serwex. Without a scale, I can't really tell you (and if I did, it might not mean that much), but I can say it is easier to get the same amount of flex out of the Serwex pens than the Noodler's Nib Creaper and the Ahab. These pens run circles around the Ahab in terms of ease of flexibility. I love Noodler's Inks, but as far as the ease of use in his own, unmodified flex nibs go, Nathan Tardiff has his work cut out for him. I am going to get a Noodler's Ebonite Brush pen just because I want one, but for flex with high shading inks, I like the Serwex.

Hi Fabienne, I really appreciate the compliment.

 

I haven't tried a Dilli, but as far as the Serwex and Noodler's pens go, we're on the same page with regards to flex.

 

Now, an issue we haven't talked about is pen design. I think with a Noodler's pen, you can swap out nibs very easily if you have a 14k vintage nib you like, or something else. There's not a lot of proprietary tooling you need in order to make a non-Noodler's part work in a Noodler's pen. The Serwex doesn't seem quite as well designed for user-friendliness and interchangeability. Look at the inside of the section on that Serwex. It's not a round hole, and there's always a fair bit of flash around the edge of it. It's a simply designed pen, but you can do more with the Noodler's pen–if that's your think. Just my 2¢.

Is it possible to take the nib of the Serwex out and then re-insert it? Because then you could grind away the sides with a dremel a bit to make it much easier to flex. And if so, I would buy it in a heart-beat.

Thanks, PrestoTenebroso. I've been looking over pens at The Fountain Pen Revolution trying to decide which pen to order. At those prices I really don't have to settle for just one :o)

I just bought the Dilli Stub Nib from Fountain Pen Revolution and it is excellent. It is a bit scratchy but I think that has more to do with being a stub then anything else. I still have not inked the free Serwex but someday soon it will have to find an ink that works for it!

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
