Tweaked Pens


Recommended Posts

Ah, well I was just curious if anybody else has done this with their pens before, but have you guys ever modded or tweaked your pen with other pens? I have a Pilot Penmenship nib <ef> and 'guts' I guess you could say, but I found out you could use the Jinhao x750's body with it. I mostly did it because it gives it a good weight while I do my little sketches and such. Plus the metal body just feels better than the usual plastic.

Sorry. I should have added that your pen combination looks good.


I like that the clear section will act as an ink window to let you know when the pen will soon run dry. The ink you mixed isn't bad, makes me think of a Waterman blue-green I recently concocted.

Wow, I think it looks great. Thank you for sharing.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I had to tweak a Zebra Z-301 cheep pen, but I like the stainless design. It looks a little Frankenstized, but it works well now. I wish Zebra would get their act together.
