Pilot Parallel Pen--1.5 Mm Italic Nib

Recommended Posts

Z bought me a Pilot Parallel Pen with a 1.5mm nib and a con-50 converter to try it out. It works pretty well, but neither of us really likes it, and so, gentle reader, our loss is your gain :-).


If you live in the Continental United States (or you live on the Big Island of Hawaii, and are willing to wait for us to hand-deliver it to you when we visit in February), and desire a chance at trying one of these pens, now is your big chance.


The lucky winner of this PIF will receive one (1) clean, barely used (one day, then converter and pen were emptied and thoroughly cleaned) Pilot Parallel Pen in 1.5mm "Red" (although this is a very Orange looking Red). Comes complete in its box, with instruction sheet, nib cleaning film, feed cleaning pipette, red and black ink cartridges, and as a special bonus a Pilot CON-50 Converter (inside the pen as the box has no special compartment for a conerter).


To enter, simply respond to this thread, and your name will be entered to win. Next Saturday (The 30th of January 2016) at about noon Pacific Standard Time all of the names will be input into our specialised randomiser (or hat) and one lucky winner will be drawn. After we get your address the pen will be delivered by our special courier service (USPS) at no additional charge.


Good luck,

Irish & Zwack

Thanks so much for your generosity.

Hi Guys :-);


We spent the day at the Rose City Classic Dog Show in Portland. What fun! And how fantastic to come home and see the respose to our PIF. If you live in the Continental U.S., you're entered! If we're not sure, Zwack will PM you to double check where you live.


As much as we'd love to be able to offer this to a worldwide audience, we know from experience that shipping is simply too prohibitive to other countries, so we have to limit this PIF to the ConUS, only. I'm sorry if this causes undue disappointment.


Thanks for your interest, and please keep your entries coming!

Please enter my name in your randomizing chapeau. A very appreciated offer and opportunity. Thank you! If I am the lucky winner, just point that 1.5 nib eastbound on I-84.

I've only braved up to a 1.1 stub nib - I'd love to try the big(er) 1.5! Even better if I could say "this was the pen I actually won in a random drawing!"


Thank for the chance at a great PIF!

Good luck to everyone :-). We have until Saturday noon. If you haven't put your name in the hat, this is a good time to do it!

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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.
