Which are these pens? They seem really pretty and comfortable to use. Any chance you could post pictures of their nibs.

 

 

I don't think they have official model designations. For the four immediately below the Lamy Safari, do a web search for "Delike Handmade Nature Wood Barrel". For the final two, do a web search for "Delike Submarine celluloid" (although I don't think the barrels are made of actual cellulose nitrate). If you still need me to take photos of the actual nibs on my pens after that to show you, let me know. They're just regular Delike steel EF (0.38mm) nibs, like on the Delike Alpha and the Delike New Moon 3.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

Last pen to complete my 24 slot pen case. Really happy with the EF nib and that piano white color. By far one of my favorite pens, love the capless design.T5IL4dY.jpg

I make pens and I use pens that I've made. I just finished this pen and it goes to work on Monday.

 

This was made on a Wood River "Navigator" kit. The metal bits are Black Titanium plate. The barrels are made with Bog Oak from Iowa.

Most Bog Oak available to wood turners comes from Europe and is usually black-ish. I know a guy in Iowa who got a line on this ancient oak found in an excavation (construction?) about 20 feet down in what is believed to be a old riverbed. Around 4500 years old. He got a bunch of it. I comes in colors from tan-ish, to blue, to black. Neat stuff.

 

While this a "kit pen", the parts are good quality. It fits the hand well, and while it doesn't have a top-shelf nib, it writes pretty good, too.

Taking shelter from the rain, under a coffee shop canopy on a City of London street corner and making some notes before a meeting with my newly acquired Comet Grey Prototype Namisu Nova with its stunningly good Bock EF nib.

I've now nicknamed the corner "Smoke & Moan" corner. Loads of different people kept ducking in under the canopy cover, lighting up a cigarette and then having a moan about this that and the other.

Me. I was having a thankful moment. I'd just seen a man in his late fifties come into the cafe and gratefully receive a free plate of whatever was about to be thrown out. There but for the grace of God :(.

Hello everyone,

 

Though i own this Sheaffer Targa 1006 Sterling Silver for years which i bought new (NOS), it was yesterday that i decided to fill it for the first time, and my ink choice was the Parker Penman Sapphire:

My new Pelikan M200 Smoky Quartz with steel F nib, that I wasn't expecting to like, both in terms of form factor and nib performance.

No, it was my reply to shanbo's request, as indicated in the 'by-line' at the top of the quoted text in my earlier post.

Hi, Northstar: Does that 51 have a nib that's special in any way? You're getting some wonderful line variation out of it. It's so rare to find a 51 with anything other than an F or M, that I'm curious!

What's confusing to me is that the line thickness does not seem to be consistent in a specific orientation?

Maybe it's an architect grind?

Aha! Artistic skill, rather than nib-grinding. Thank you for solving the mystery.
