What material is it made of, or did I miss that in the review?

 

how much is it - state- side?

Hi Vaibhav,

 

nice review. The feeder however is plastic, also the holes are there for cosmetic reasons only. it is easy to confuse them for breather holes which they are not.

 

Hope this helps.

The nib looks like some old Stypen fountain pens made ca. 1980-90..Interesting!!

:thumbup:

 

 

I was just this minute thinking the same thing.

See, for example--

The feeders of JoWo i am not sure if that can be called plastic. Its more like soft rubber. The nib & feed can be pulled out from housing just like friction fit nibs (just remember to disengaged the converter before pulling out)

Very good review and very good writing. I finally understood the purpose of those holes and I also learnt that the nib and feed have to be pulled out. Thanks to Harry sir and Anup sir. But where is the breather hole?

But where is the breather hole?

Breather hole not necessary. If u see Camlin Trinity - the nib has no holes. Similar with some Waterman nibs.

 

Many things are old concepts like breather hole on nib & on cap.

the nib and feed have to be pulled out.

The rotation threads are in the housing. The nib feed & housing are all separable.

 

You can dismantle it in any way you wish.

 

If u r pulling out nib & feed then just pull it out. There is no scope of wiggling
