I have received my four ordered pens and they are lovely!

 

I have taken a picture to upload but was unable to figure out how to upload from my computer (without uploading to a site). Any insights would be much appreciated!

Thank you so much Intensity for the detailed tutorial!

 

I apologize but when I go into 'More Reply Options', the 'Attach Files' never shows up for me. I tried with both Chrome and Safari. I have added the picture to Instagram. You can see the image here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BgmXYBYB-Rc/?taken-by=crackthemba. I know this is not ideal but I was unable to figure out how to add the image to this discussion :(

 

From left to right, the pens are (all in smooth finish):

 

1) Pink Blue Swirl, Model 3C, Bock nib in EF, Black

2) Blue Orange Green White Swirl, Model 8B, Eyedropper, Kanwrite nib in F

3) Blue White Swirl, Thin Bamboo, Eyedropper, Kanwrite nib in F

4) Pink Blue Pale Yellow Swirl, Model 3C, Eyedropper, Kanwrite nib in F

I’m not completely versed in the rules, but I think there is a minimum number of posts required before you are able to do some things on FPN. Uploading pictures may be one of those.

 

Lovely pens. You’ll enjoy them

Many thanks for posting the picture on my behalf MBDoestovsky! Thank you all for the comments.

 

I'd like to add that I'm loving the pens. I've been warming up to them more and more with each passing day. I love the smoothness of the Eyedropper version!

 

Also, I read on another thread about a stuck section inside the cap. I had something similar happen to me yesterday. I immediately wrote to Mr. Kandan who had a nice remedy. Incidentally, another tip that helped was online relating to soaking the cap in soapy water (5:1 ratio). 2 mins of that and I could get the section out. I think some of the ink was clogging it up.

 

Excited to see everyone else's pics!

How's the uncapped length of the 8B? Is it the same as the 3C?

The uncapped length of the 8B is marginally longer - maybe a couple of mm. More or less similar.

What about the nib section width? I know they are different in shape. But is the feel similar?

 

 

I'd say the 3C nib section is a tad wider.

 

When you ask about the feel, do you ask about the feel of the ebonite itself? If yes, I find them to be similar. Having said that, I want to mention that my two 3C pens seem feel slightly different. The blue-pink swirl feels different from the blue-green-orange-white swirl and blue-pink-pale yellow swirl. The latter two colors feel more polished, if you will. Might be that the former is coming from a different vendor?

Thanks, So now I know that 3c is wider.

 

But is the difference palpable when you write. In other words is there a difference in the comfort level while holding the 2 pens. I know it is subjective, but still wanted to know as I do not have any pens with hourglass nib section.

 

Enjoy your pens. 👍

I personally found both pens to be comfortable. Truth be told, I had not even paid attention to the hourglass shaped section until you asked?! The 8B was comfortable to write with, for me. I want to mention that I have small hands. YMMV.

trusting not to go OT,

the described method does not work for me since a very long time (but used to work in the past, say 2 years ago?) it keeps telling me that upolad failed, despite I reduce my files to well below 2Mb (usually around 600kb).

The only method that works for me is using the upload page at the top (tab in the top row of the page, in blue).

I reduce size of my photos, which are usually 4 MB, browse and select them from the upload page, upload them, copy the direct link, go to my post, click more reply options, select the image icon (green window in the top row in the post window), paste the link, post.

A bit cumbersome, but works.

      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
