I visited Bittner’s in Carmel this weekend. Ended up putting in for an Armando Simoni Club Arco Verde in gold trim with their Magic flex nib. I tried the nib on a brown Arco ASC pen in stock and it was dead smooth! This is the last of the Omas Arco Verde material. It would have been fantastic to get it in a faceted pen but the rarity of an Omas in Arco Verde these days has driven prices through the roof. This ASC pen should be very special though especially with a #8 flex nib. I’m expecting delivery in June. Can’t wait!

Someday the mountain might get em but the law never will.........

A Wancai mini pen in mint swirl that comes with a 1.1 stub nib. It looks so darn cute.

Grr... got my "like new" 144 and it's a disaster! OK -- dried ink, I can deal with that. But in the course of cleaning it, I found that the end of the pen is broken in several places and the tines of the nib are horribly misaligned.

I am waiting on a Tabo CO which should turn up in a few weeks. I am mainly curious about it, and happily for curiosity, the price was low. Tabo went out of business during 1948, about a year after Aurora brought out their famous 88. From pictures, the Tabo CO looks like they went to Aurora and asked for some spare 88s with the ends flattened so they could write Tabo on there. ;) I will say something more after it arrives and I can find out how well or whether it operates.

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? 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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
