So, what do you like?

 

I’d just like to know your opinion.

 

I personally prefer flat ends, but tell me what you like!

I prefer 'flat' ends for some unexplainable aesthetic reason.

Well, I can't vote. The poll doesn't support multiple options.

 

I love Pelikan's style of cap finial (and Graf von Faber Castell, for that matter), but I also would have voted for Flat and Conical.

Well, you could select other! Sorry about that!

I voted flat ends, although my preferences are almost the same as Gilbert i.e. I like flat ends and/or conical ends. Still ended up voting flat ends, as I like them just a bit better, most of the time.

Speaking of conical ends - I love inverted conical finials too (example: first-generation Parker 45)

I like them all.  I like the variety.  Of course, there are ugly iterations of each.  For me, the finial goes with the general appearance and contour of the pen.  IOW's, a cigar shaped pen looks great with rounded ends.  However, a more rectangular longitudinal profile works better with flattened ends.  etc.

      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
