Let’S See Those Titanium Pens!



Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

I just got my Ensso Piuma in the mail today so Im excited! Heres my small titanium collection. Theres a Namisu Nova and new Ensso Piuma both with Ti Bock nibs. The Namisu in broad (slightly re ground) and a medium on the Ensso. Also an Omas DLC bronze titanium Paragon in fine breathed on to write like a wet medium and an Inka titanium body survival ballpoint. I think the Inka has a space pen refill.

 

Oddly enough the cap and section threads on the Namisu and Ensso are the same. The cap from the Ensso will thread to the Namisu but the cap diameter is a little smaller. The Ensso section will thread to the Namisu as well but the converter hits the end of the body leaving a very small gap section to body. The Ensso section only works with the Ensso cap due to the larger diameter near the nib. Kind of interesting.

 

Anyway, lets see some titanium pens! Love this material!

Here is my one and only titanium nib pen.

Stipula Model T Lapis Lazuli GT with a titanium T-Flex nib.

I think the name of the nib, "T-Flex", is a little optimistic, but it does deliver some nice softness to enable some expression in your script. Love the matte appearance of the titanium nib, even in gold trim.

I do not know if my pen qualifies, only the nib is titanium, but I love it. Here are some photos of the nib bleeding Waternman Serenity Blue ink on some generic paper...

I'm really a fan of those Bock titanium nibs. Those were a big surprise for me in a good way.

Never really understood why they would take a nice sterling silver pen and cover it with titanium so it was a matte finish.....but I also own one. And a Parker 75 with titanium nib.

Only just seen this, but that Namisu Ixion looks really good in titanium. Nice pen!

I chose my user name years ago - I have no links to BBS pens (other than owning one!)
