What Pen Are You Waiting For In The Mail 2018


RMN

Recommended Posts

 

It must be all of my <good-clean-living> but I was surprised to see that the order I placed this morning at 8:30 (above) has shipped at 11:45! And I asked them to test out the nib on the Diplomat Aero before shipping it. I know that not everyone has this experience with Goulet, but they have been speedy every time for me.

So, the Diplomat Aero has arrived. Right on time and packed with utmost care. The jury is still out on what I think about it. I think I will post my initial assessment and concerns under the reviews tab. So check me there.

Found a Pilot Vanishing Point ballpoint on Amazon for $32 which happens to match my VP fountain pen in colour. I’ve got a K400 to go with my M600, and an L2K fountain and ballpoint combo. Seemed like the right price and hopefully in a few days my VP fountain will have a companion.

Goulet works at their customer service, but they aren't always the best. Others can be as good or better. And cheaper. My last set of samples from Goulet was the least amount per vial that I have ever received from anyone. <Shrug>

 

This is why i stopped ordering ink samples from them. I'm surprised that so many people are willing to pay the same amount for less ink! I guess the only plus side is that you have less ink lying around if you order a lot of samples...

I don't know: Is it a Namiki? Is it a Pilot?? Either way, I'm waiting for a Fermo. I had a chance to use one last weekend and was immediately smitten. I love retractable nibs.

Retractable nibs should be a lot more prevalent. I've got pens I enjoy using a whole lot more, but my VP is the king of convenience. How's the twist action on the Fermo? Does it apply force to the nib section evenly? Or is there a spring to it?

I only had the opportunity to use a borrowed Fermo very briefly. I'll let you know in a couple of weeks!

Wow! just had the chance to get two lovely Edison pens at a very good price - one of the discontinued Heralds and one of the two Colliers I haven't got!

 

They're headed to my Dad's house as I'm off travelling... I'll have to pick them up next time I'm round his. Just hope he doesn't decide to keep them as he did with one of my nicer Parker vintage pens!

Too many pens, too little time!

3 Wingsun (one if a 698 - can't remember the numbers of the other two, one is a hero I think), a Conway Stewart 84, and 2 Swans (one is a 1 S-F - not sure what that means other than it's a self filler, and the other is a blackbird).

Faber-Castell School, in the "Carbon" finish. The carbon bit is a plastic film designed to look similar to carbon fiber, but from the pictures it looks better than the blue and red finish.

What is normal for an ink sample, and what does Goulet do? Edited by Corona688

      @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.

      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.
