Have you tried the Gel-ink refills for the Jotter?

Yeah, they're much smoother!

Well, my Danitrio arrived today and I'm super excited!  I don't even have the ink I want to put in here yet, but had to post some pictures!

 

This is the Danitrio Tactical Carry II, or more famously the $33 pen.  It's my first non-disposable FP.  Seems like most people go for the Lamy Safari as a first, but I'm not a big fan of their style (don't flog me, sorry!?!), although I do have a Studio on the way.  I've read very good reviews of this Danitrio and at $33 was roughly the same price as the Safari.  I figured it was a good "starter pen" if you will.  This is the black lacquer with gold/brass furnishings and I think it looks pretty good.  I typically like black with silver accents (like the Scheaffer Intensity I posted a few days ago), but this has a more classy look, instead of modern.

 

The build quality seems very good and I'm honestly impressed for $33.  The pen is crazy heavy!  It feels like it could be used as a weapon.  I think I'm more concerned about dropping it because it may damage the floor, not the pen!  That being said, it seems very comfortable in the hand.  My ink is on it's way, so can't say how it writes just yet.  I'll keep everyone posted.  In the mean time, enjoy the pics!

Love Diamine ink, sadly it does not like my Montegrappa!

I have to get myself a Pelikan one day as well as a Sheaffer. Everyone Pelikan I have tried I have enjoyed the nib.

Looks like the Pelikan has a good large volume ink reservoir.

I just picked up a Hero 329 as my first fountain pen (purchased from a reputable source) and I'm not impressed. I wasn't expecting to be blown away, but for a "fine" tip, it's rather thick and bleeds easily. Does anyone know of a finer FP in a decent price range that I can use for notes in college? I'd like to find joy in writing with these, but this first one isn't doing it yet.

I am currently using a LAMY Safari with an EF nib and I am extremely happy with it.MY only gripe is that sometimes it writes very rough. Is it because of the nib or the ink? I am using standard LAMY ink refills and I do not use ink bottles. If the problem is in the ink, should I buy a new type of refill that also fits the LAMY Safari? or should I just go buy the ink bottle?

Mine is about as fine as my Lamy EF. It is a bit more "inky" but it does not bleed much. Take this advice with a grain of salt: wear the nib down a bit with some cardboard to smooth it out. Then you might not have to press down as much and it will thus bleed less. 

That's what I did to mine and it worked but then again it *can* damage the pen if you get the material in the nib.

This particular nib doesn't have much flex in it and it seems to hold a fair amount of ink (manual doesn't reveal how much).

Currently looking into some vintage overlay Waterman's, and safety's. For me it's vintage or go home!

man did i luck out. i live in a very rural area. drove 20 miles to a town where there is an officemax. i had arranged with the manager to match the price on officemax.com. for 100 sheets of 100% cotton 32lb paper. i got there and he said no one ever buys this stuff. i have 5 boxes, do you want them for $30? naturally my answer was "yes". even at officemax.com price of $9.99 a box if your local store matches it....dang good stuff. it is the brand "southworth". not all cotton papers are equal but i find this excellent. ymmv of course.

i know we were discussing pens but you need something to write on too lol.

3 Unused Hero fountain pens for sale anyone interested in a fountain pen.
post #1379 of 2766

Fellow wordsmiths! I am looking for a reliable writing instrument that I could refill instead of throwing out. Previously favorites of mine have been Pentel BLN35 gel-ink pens because of minimal friction, fast drying and deep black ink that does not bleed through the pages. The main problem of mine is that I don't hold the pen as I should therefore shortly after the writing I end smearing most conventional inks. Also minimal friction is important because my incorrect "stance" seems to fatigue the palm more than usual.

 

Recently I seem to like finer tips but anything that writes less than 0.5mm wide should do. Also I write quite often so it would be good that the pen would not be too thirsty. The finer tip should benefit this, no?

 

Anything useful you can tell me? Recommend maybe?
