Pen Recommendation Please



Recommended Posts

CharlieTurtle

Hi there,

 

Once again I am on the hunt for a fairly specific type of pen. I'm taking a holiday and want to take a cartridge-using pen with me - but the ink I want to use is in Long SI cartridges, and none of my pens take them! Plus, I wanted a pen to use with my diary's pen loop anyway. So it must fit the following:

 

  1. Slim
  2. Takes Long Standard International Cartridges
  3. Preferably non-metal grip section
  4. Western fine / Japanese Medium nib available
  5. Accepts a convertor would be a bonus.

I've considered:

 

  1. The Pilot MR - the European version takes SI, IIRC.
  2. Kaweco Sport - but I think this only takes the short ones?

Any suggestions?

Ooh, an Edison could work, as I've wanted one for a while!

Following on from this (sort of) - are Edison nibs friction-fit?

Edison nibs are screw on nib units, easily swapped out. If you have a particular bare nib of the proper size, the nib itself is just friction fit in the collar itself. A couple of months ago, I took an Edison #6 nib unit and swapped in the nib from a Danitrio nib unit. Worked like a champ.

I have a very smooth Goulet #6 nib sitting in my pen box, wondered if it would fit. Thank you for the helpful reply :)

 

Now to pick an Edison...

      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.

      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.

      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
