Progress Bullet - Mini Fountain Pen


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have some unusually small fountain pens, which were kept in my drawers for some time and now started using them. Here is the first one - Progress Bullet.

It is a very small eyedropper fountain pen from a discontinued Indian brand called Progress. It has a semi-hooded nib and gold plated fittings (clip and cap band) with a GP nib. The pen writes very smooth with its folded/butterfly nib (no iridium point tipping). The nib is engraved “Platinum Easy Flow Point (BOSS)

Not gonna lie, that's a pretty darn cute little thing. Very simple and elegant.

      @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!
