Wow Wow Wow!!!

 

The black and gold have an interesting vibe.

 

(I have tested out a silver and gold one. Don't memba the exact name.)

There are 4-5 different colors combo's possible for the nib.....a very, very 'Springy' nib like MB or the Falcon but much better than my Woolf.

In Heidelberg on the Hauptstrasse/Mainstreet there is a Lamy only pen store. That nib has great tine bend.....but unfortunately only 2 X tine spread.

With 3 X tine spread (semi-flex), I'd connived one already.

 

The nib will not fit my old Persona.....I do have to call up the factory and ask if the section would fit....then comes the long dithering as I try to decide either which nib colors I want....or if I'll have to :blush: :rolleyes: sell pens.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:

I kind of liked my Persona from way back when.

Makes me wonder how Lamy can get the Imporium so right and the 50th anniversary 2000 so wrong.

 

For the amount of money each cost I'd rather spend my money on an Imporium, if I had it available.

 

The black Imporium really floats my boat!

I presented myself with one, also the black version, early last year as a present to self/celebration/consolation for several Life Events.

 

 

It's a great pen. Heavy but I like that. I have chosen an XF, very unusual for me. And I find it very smooth for an XF. (my Cross Verve XF is smoother)

 

Only one minor negative point: The threads on the cap sometimes make it sit askew, so you have to unscrew and try again.

You need to try my trick (which actually I got off Stephen Brown on YouTube). Put the cap on, but before twisting, turn the other direction for about 15-30 degrees, then turn the correct direction - it helps line the threads up/

:) Yes, I too saw Stephen's review. That does not change that it IS a small flaw.

I like that so well that I had placed an order for one, prior to seeing this thread, from Iguana sell. I wanted the B nib and they do not have one so are having to order from Lamy and I should have it in a few weeks.

Regards

I finally got mine today, just over a month. I had to wait on an oblique bold nib, which is not too bold compare to some other makes, but nice, wet, and smooth. The pictures in previous posts are good but do not do the pen justice, For a modern pen it is rather stunning, different, but rather dignified in appearance.

Regards

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now.

Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
