Review Of The Cross Peerless 125 Tokyo Edition



Recommended Posts

Fantastic nib - smooth and consistent line. However, I’m not really convinced by the converter: mine doesn’t work really well (it takes a lot of time to fill less than a half of the “cartridge”).

 

Super! :D

Think you should try another of the converters (or dissemble this to clean it and re-grease the seal), mine works quite smoothly.

Thank you! Good to know - I will try cleaning it first…

Great review and pics.

 

The Peerless is a marmite pen. The F nib is smooth and suits the pen design. It is imposing but not a shirt pocket pen.

 

I am unsure of any other American-Japanese collaboration.

Thanks for sharing 1nkulus :)

Some of the brands in CFP (nibs.com) can be said to be American-Japanese collaboration. Dunhill-Namiki of the yesteryears comes to mind too

AFAIK, Dunhill is a British brand.

 

The Peerless is similar to MB 149 when it comes to heft, probably heavier.

An AK47 FP would have been a welcome addition to the lineup.

 

It is also available with an XF nib, if you can find it.

 

The Peerless, IMO, is a VFM pen for its size, nib quality and heft.

Yes, but AFAIK, they are not making the pens themselves. They contracted with Namiki for that.

True, but I was highlighting the American-Japanese collaboration with the Peerless whereas Dunhill-Namiki would be construed as a British-Japanese collaboration (started in late 1920's).

CFP is also selling P125 nib-sections separately here, so it might be AK47 roller-ball + a nib-section

Although Sailor XF would be too extraaaa... for my taste :yikes:

I went for the “combo” AK47 rollerball + Fine nib section: both are a pleasure to use.

The combo fix would be the only option.

 

The XF nib would be a nice addition to the collection. Nothing like a Japanese XF apart from an XXF. :D

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
