A Few Beginner Pens


Sailor Kenshin
 Share

Recommended Posts

Up for grabs: five beginner pens, an extra section that I believe fits the clear pen, and, not seen, a couple of standard carts, plus a sample vial labeled Diamine China Blue (but isn't....it is nonetheless blue of a sort).

 

 

I'll leave this PIF open for a bit, close on a whim, and select a winner using the highly scientific eeny-meeny methodology.

 

Conus only, please. Thanks.

The trio on the left are Jinhao. The clear are no-na-me. ;)

 

All I know about the UPS logo pen is that it takes standard internationals.

Thanks for satisfying - up to a point - my curiosity.

Not in. I had Jinhao 599 that I was PIFfed at one point. I didn't like the pen, because of that Safari section. I'd fill it with my most innocuous ink, and give it to an office mate --"Here, try this out for a few days, and tell me what you think!" Between its absurdly low price (under $1 unit pricing at the time) and my dislike for the section profile, I truly did not care if I didn't get it back.

 

The folks I gave it to told me they did like it. And they also gave it back. Eventually, it failed, resulting in leakage, and I binned it. These days, I'd pull the nib before doing so.

Brown inks are my favorite and the UPS is calling out to be filled with one of many shades!

Would enjoy it (if youre splitting the pack) and put it to good use. But I have been a PIF winner recently and I shouldnt put my name in the hat again.

Whoever winsenjoy! The Jinhao 599s are fun!

Please add me to the list. Thanks!

While I could use the pens for testing inks.

(I've fallen for a pif'd ink and been distracted.)

And I enjoy the variety of your pen pifs.

(I've yet to see a fountain pen at ups.)

 

This is not an entry.

Thanks for doing a pif.

Wow. Ive literally been browsing these types of Lamy-style pens. Ive got a few of these in my ebay cart, and those shark Jinhaos, lol. Plus some 91s and 992s - so cheap I cant resist! I color coordinate inks and pens so I need the rainbow! Lol. I always use the cheap ones more, less afraid of breakage. Just DIYd my first stub nib out of a broken fine point!

 

Dont pick me, Ive budgeted a few pens into Junes budget already. Please pick someone who needs them more.

From inquisitive newbie coveter to utilitarian (ultra) fine point user to calligraphy flourisher. The life cycle of a fountain pen lover.

I'm impressed that you did a DIY stub! I used nail clippers on my first.

amyx231 - Yay on DIY stub.

 

sailor kenshin - Did the nail clippers give a subtly rounded edge? Did the nib write well?

 

 

I did one with wire cutters, and a bit of 'writing' on a polishing stone.

No, not at first. The cut nib needed a lot of smoothing and testing. It was a no-name $1 yard sale special. ;)

      @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.
