Been looking at getting a vintage Soviet pen for a bit. I finally found one I really liked the look of. Here is my review. Feel free to ask me any questions.

Thank you for the review.....

 

You wrote: "Where have you ever seen flex before in a hooded nib???!!!"

 

Aurora 888 c1960's..88's c1950's..Waterman Taperite{s} some really flexie nibs.

 

The Soyuz looks just like the Camlin 47 hooded nib.. piston filler with diamond shape ink windows.

 

On a personal note...all me Parker "51's" have not had any problems as long as they are set-up right....

I know Waterman changed around their design around for the Taperite a few times, but I own two of them, and neither of them are "hooded." Both are "recessed" or semi-hooded. Although you may have a true hooded Taperite. But yeah, I was thinking of Taperite when I thought of some semi-hooded ones. That being said,

 

I have never seen or held a vintage Aurora before, so I am unsure of them.

 

I also have never seen, or even heard of a Camlin before. Sounds interesting.

 

I have 2 51's. They are both a real bare to write with. Hard starters. I never use. Figured it was because I am left handed, but I've since tried a Lamy 2000 and now this and seen that really is not the case. Was going to give up on hooded nibs entirely when I saw this one and thought I'd give this one a try.

Very nice. Thanks for the review. I want to own a Soyuz too. Have been in touch with a few Russians who are primarily watch collectors. But I am still to buy one.

 

Reg the camlin 47 which is a piston pen from India, the direct inspiration is from the Montblanc Monterosa.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
