Lotsa Pics, some comparisons! :

I'm fairly new to FPN, and hope that the posting of this 3rd party review is done correctly and is not in violation of any written or unwritten rules or sensibilities. Please advise.

 

That said, I wanna get me one of these !

Thanks. I found a seller who provides what he calls a "medium wet" nib, so I ordered.

Pararis, is the seller Bobby/office_supplies_pen eBay @ $23 ?

 

Thanks! George

I'd promised myself I wasn't going to buy anything else from @ChinesePen on etsy - at least, not for a while. This review made me break my promise...

Mine arrived yesterday and is a purple one. Lovely pen. I've been writing with it for a couple of days and it is very comfortable. I wrote with the Moonman Fine nib for an hour and then swapped it for a medium nib the Bobby supplied. I like the medium better although the fine point nib wrote smooth and wet. Fine is just not my thing.

Just saw Chrisrap52 review on this pen, 5 ml of ink capacity on this pen is just insane.

Nice review. My handwriting is jealous.

 

Thanks, EDC! Perspective is always interesting. I've always been embarrassed by my cursive and worked to improve it constantly but still end up disappointed. Thank you for the confidence boost!

My C1 just arrived but with a generic “Iridium point” nib, I was expecting the new moonman nib. Will send a picture later, still didn’t inked it.

 

Bought with bobby in Ebay.

I love the C1. the box is really nice, the nib writes perfectly, the section has just the right amount of color to pop, and I didn't realize but it has that milled flat edge in the whole pen (which always lines up when capped) that keeps it from rolling.

 

The nib is a very juicy smooth medium.

 

Clean and elegant design, great writer. Moonman makes some damn good pens.

That's weird. Did yours come with a box? I'd email bobby. It should have a non two-tone (so all silver) #6 nib with the monteverde mountain thing and the conklin crescent breather

And the fault is mine. That particular pen Bobby made the option of ‘wet medium bobby’s nib’ or something like that which I’ve selected and didn’t remembered. Sorry, my fault.

 

And it’s a medium and it’s wet :)

I got an extra nib with my C1, not tested yet but I am hoping it to be finer than the stock Fine-Medium Moonman nib.

I just bought one from Bobby Customs eBay store that has an architect grind. I'm excited to try it out

I just ordered one from TaoBao for 106 RMB (US$15/£12). I'm pretty sure I'm going to want to try swapping for a finer nib. Will this pen take a standard (i.e. Jowo) 6 nib, or is there a source to obtain the well-reviewed Moonman nibs in finer sizes?

Having not done that yet, I figured I should try. It works.

 

I fit a Jowo 1.1 stub into a Moonman nib unit and swapped that into the C1. Writes very nicely.

 

Moonman #6 nibs are one size at this point so no finer versions available yet to the best of my knowledge.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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
