My first vintage pen - 1945 Vacumatic Major in Emerald Green. Very much user grade but I enjoy it! (Sorry for poor lighting - still early in the morning here :P)

That Waterman 55 Cardinal is beautiful. Taking advantage of the fact that I had this image already uploaded, I put it on. Sheaffer with a nib # 4 and "zig-zag" stripes.

Congratulations on going vintage - a solid choice!

Ohh - lovely flex nib and an uncommon chasing to boot.

Here is another one of my favorite flex nibs - Aurora Optima

(I hope this picture won't be overkill.)

Hi,

 

no overkill, just an impressive nib on stage! :-)

I have a 140 with a great OB nib, a second 140 with OF nib is what I'm still looking for...

 

Enjoy

Jens

I've got a vintage 400 with an OB nib. But I'd need to flush it out and refill it before I do pix for this thread (right now it's got diluted Diamine Terra Cotta in it because I was too lazy to flush and just refilled the pen with distilled water -- which makes for really pale and illegible writing :().

Ah....

 

Nice ink.

 

I have just discovered Diamine ink.

 

The colors are lovely, and the ink flows well through the pen.

 

I don't need another Pelikan, but maybe an OB Lamy 2000, (maybe somethin' else?)

 

All I know is that I'm gonna get a German pen with an Oblique nib dangit.
