Stola Iii/experiences/nib Suggestions?

Hey everyone, I'm considering getting a Stola III and I'm wondering what your experiences have been with this pen/ease of use, et al. Also, since I'm more used to Japanese pens; what nib size would you suggest for me?

Regards,

I have one and find it to be a good writer. Note that the cap does not post very securely-- some have said it doesn't post at all but my copy did. I believe it is only available in a medium nib.

Very good experiences, very pleasant nib, but there's only one size available - medium. And as for posting I can say that mine does not post at all.

The only thing that bothers me is that step between the grip section and the barrel.

I write small, so the lack of nib options kind of turned me off of the Stola. Of course I didn't figure out that the nib was a little too wet and wide until I used it, so it's still in my collection.

 

Also, the cap doesn't really post. I love my other Pelikans, just not real keen on he Stola.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
