Wow, that's a pretty blatant knock-off

 

I wonder the mechanism is, in terms of smoothness and reliability?

Nice looking pens. But I guess I’m missing something since I don’t see the point in a two stage uncapping process…

 

I guess I also wouldn’t understand the MB version…

 

 

Just give me the Parker 51s and nobody needs to get hurt.

If anyone will buy it, I'm interested to know if nib tend to dry fast like the other boheme clones already exsisting.

Thanks.

Indeed. I don't get the point either. What's the use of a retractable nib when you have a cap anyway. 

Does look nice though...

And one more thing: does that mean you have to use the pen posted? (Which I only do with my Kaweco)

 I don't know either. When I asked their manager about this, They told me: Maybe because MB is popular.

... are you serious?... how does someone who gives an answer THAT dumb to that question end up in a managerial position?... wow...

 I think he just didn't reply me directly  because of their trademark dispute with MB

oh, I misunderstood, I though that was a MB Manager's answer for why MB would make the pen! :P 

 

now his answer doesn't seem stupid, it's a "well, we make copies, so we copied this" kinda answer :)

Moonman's recent endeavours just leave me with less respect for the brand , I was mean to give them business but they keep reminding me not to. Well .. the money can always be spend somewhere else

Is this a cartridge only pen?

The reason for the retractable nib is in the size of the cap. The pen is very short when capped, and a reasonable length when extended and posted.

Some of the Chinese clones has no retractable nib, but cap is very short too.

      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
