Pen-Fi (FPs, RBs, BPs, etc...) [56k Warning] - Page 100

post #1486 of 2510

writing out my Chem homework right now with my new Lamy Safari (Black, fine) with the standard black ink cartridges. Now I want a red safari with red ink for grading, they write so smooth, much more precise than my medium tip cross too

I can't believe I've been here forever and never discovered this area.

 

Storage for my pens and inks:

The Parker Vacumatic isn't mine. It's being borrowed but the rest are all mine. My Bexley Corona isn't pictures in those pictures since I JUST got it.

 

My next purchases will probably be a Lamy 2000 and Delta Dolce Vita.

IMG_0839.JPG3 of my most favourite fountain pens that have been with me since i was 13 and until now when i am in year 1 of college, the mont blanc meisterstuck 149 EF nib, the Graf von faber castell intuition F nib and the Pelikan m800 F nib, fantastic writing pens, smooth on paper as well not to mention more reliable than my pilot G2, most of my friends call me old fashioned but they will never understand as fountain pens like high end headphones or earphones are skillfully crafted items that require a certain kind of appreciation biggrin.gif. Say anyone here have a Nakaya fountain pen?? Kinda hard to find

Beautiful collection. I see you like oversized simple yet elegant designs.

 

Here is one I just purchased 2 days ago w/ a oversized dual tone nib.

Nice pen what brand is it??
post #1491 of 2510

It's a Delta.

 

The seller is well known for his great service on FPN. I contacted him and after a few messages realized he lived within walking distance from me. Met up and picked up the pen... such a small world.

Nakaya handmade Japanese pens?

 

They're beautiful and I plan to get one in the future. I just spent a bit too much this month and need to cool off on my purchases.

Yeah they are unique however hard to get a hold of not many retailers carry that pen but their flex nib is fantastic.

I haven't seen anyone measure the line width of the Pilot Prera yet (though I haven't been looking), so here it is:

7633365080_3a7826584f_b.jpg
Sorry, no metric! The measurement is 1/64 of an inch, which is about 0.4mm wide.

Be aware that this paper is not typical printer paper, though I'd say the line width is typical for reasonably decent filler paper.
Like all things, take this with a grain of salt, as the line width can vary depending on individual handwriting.

EDIT: This is the Prera with the fine nib.

The Lamy's write so nice and smoothly, but the Cross FP I have writes much more expressively. I.e. with slight variations in pressure as one writes, the line width varies dramatically, which I like. Wish I could find a pen that delivered the best of both!
