Recommended Posts

If you are a sucker for Moonman pens, well boys and girls you better get your wallet ready and packed this month since they are releasing two new models based on the picture linked below (from the reddit post here):

I really like both of the model. The T1 looks so similar to the Fine Writing International pens.

Thank you for this information. The M8 appeals to me - I'll have to wait for the details when it is launched. I wonder how much they'll be.

This outfit has certainly been busy and they've produced some interesting pens.

yeah they had announce it a bot more than a week , I had the notice from them. Looks interesting but really not my cup of tea. The T1 is more of a blown up, grown up piston filler of the Kaweco Sport

Its a Piston filler

 

Yes. I just thought overall design wise it is similar to the Fine Writing International.

And it is now available on feebay, happy spending!

Ordered one of both (woops).

Ditto, although the supplier (freefolkdream on ebay) of the M8 just messaged me to say they received a whole batch of damaged pens and they didn't know when a replacement batch would be available, so my order was being cancelled. :-(

 

I'll try another, but people should be on the lookout for damaged pens filtering through.

One taobao reviewer noted that the barrel thread insert came unglued. Any other info on the nature of the problem?

 

I haven't received mine yet but it is reported to be on the way.

That's a very bad joke , the coupler do not even had thread to mate to the barrel , this is pure engineering failure , I am glad this come out so early from retail, save many who might otherwise be caught , and thank you this is good reminder that I would had to stay way from this M8 thing

From all I can tell, the M8 is the M6 in new materials. Have you heard of this problem with that pen? I haven't.

Well the material and the finishing might had something to do with it after all what works on the M6 does not translate to automatically working on the M8 ; still a pretty bad engineered parts. Never like these glued push fit style construction ; just too many in build faults

Don't want to highjack this thread, but careful with the Stipula Tocco Ferro. Mine fell on the floor and it just exploded into small parts. I do have to say that I then sent it to Stipula and they replaced it with another one, though it took about 6 months for the new pen to arrive.

 

I have a few Stipula Ventidues and a Vedo - they are more rugged.

 

Back to the Moonman M8....

      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.

      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
