Ordered a Diplomat Aero in blue from Goulet. Never had a Diplomat before and the Aero looks cool. The blue model and free ink pushed me over the edge to try one out now then getting something else. If Karas had gotten the Vertex into production I would have ordered that instead but do to machine breakdowns it's going to be November for production to catch up enough to sell them. Oh well.

Kudos to your 'Adviser'. Do you pay him any fees?


He is such a kind-hearted person...That is why he has never taken any fee... :D

Just pulled the trigger on my first Souveran series Pelikan - a M405 White Tortoise B nib from The Writing Desk. This is my most expensive pen by a fair amount, but I had come into some funds unexpectedly and added to some other funds I knew I had in the pipeline. Decided to get it now rather than wait too much longer when it might not be available.

Picked up yesterday MB Rouge et Noir Spider and Snake editions (fine, springy nibs) and on order for next month is a Pilot Custom Urushi in vermilion.

I'm waiting for a Faber-Castell Loom in gunmetal finish with a Fine nib. I hear the Faber-Castell nibs are pretty consistent and smooth.

A post-97 M150 black/grey - been waiting a long time for one of these. Seller supposed to be swapping the M for an F.

It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

New toy to play with. Pre 20's BCHR eyedropper Diamond Point Safety Clip with a warranted flexible medium, thanks to Peyton. Ridiculous shape for a pen this old. I'm once again amused at how all the zoomed in photos on the internet distort my sense of scale. I was simultaneously impressed with the shape of things on a pen of that size & a bit tickled by how much smaller it was than I'd anticipated, especially the nib. Practically need a loupe to see if it's in the pen, let alone inspect the tipping. :D

For some reason I started wanting a TWSBI Eco. I looked around, and could have supported pen stores (online). But I would have spent more because of say Colorverse ink on sale. But I didn’t want to spend that much.


I found the black version on amazon.com with a 1.1 mm stub nib fulfilled by TWSBI. I had over $11 credit built up, so it cost $20.10. It is priced $3 higher approximately, but with the credit I think I got a good deal.


I have a Diamond 580, and know the Eco is not that quality. But like I noted, for some reason I wanted the Eco.

Visconti Van Gogh- Irises

Oh you are going to love this pen. I have one, and I swear it almost seems like it was oil painted. Obviously not, but it shows Visconti did a great job on honoring the paintings.

Leonardo Pens Furore


I was looking at these when my Momento Zero Positano finally arrived, the steel nibs are quite good, tho the option to buy extra Leonardo nibs suddenly appeared, now I'm wondering whether to buy another pen plus order some new steel nibs.

      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.

      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
