I purchased the Olive green version....I do like the coloring of the resin, it looks and feels really good.

 

BUT the threads in the barrel that thread onto the nib section, and the threads on the outside of the barrel that thread to the cap are not very smooth.

 

Particularly the threads on the outside of the barrel that thread into the cap are not smooth at all.

 

I put a little silicone grease on the threads and it really didn't help a whole lot.

 

Can any other owner comment on their threads?

 

I am contemplating a return...

 

Any input would be appreciated.

 

Thanks


Sorry to hear that. The threads on mine are smooth. 

I chose my user name years ago - I have no links to BBS pens (other than owning one!)

I'm considering getting this pen, so all of this information is very useful.  Anybody else with any experience with this pen?

 

Would love to hear from you -

 

Erick

 

Using right now:

Kaweco Dia2 "F" nib running Kaweco Blue

Eversharp Skyline "F" nib running Omas Sepia

Leonardo Officina Italiana "EF" nib running Noodler's Cayenne

I should clarify my earlier comment: the threads themselves are smooth, not rough in any way, but there are some points of roughness or tightness when screwing the cap on and off. Not that I do, but I can certainly hold the pen by the threads without any discomfort.

 

Anyway, I'm really pleased with the pen. It's the right weight and size for me, and once I've sent it off to be ground to italic it will be perfect.

I didn't ink mine up because of the threads...I liked everything else about the Pen.  But for $200++ I did not find the thread issue acceptable.

 

I am returning mine...the vendor indicated they had another customer with a similar thread issue.

 

May try one again in a few months...

To whom it may concern: Just in case you thought that using fine micromesh/sand paper to sand/smooth out the sharp threads might help, DON’T DO IT! It doesn’t work. Ask me how I found out (a long long time ago)😀.

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
