Picture says it all. The erratic style is due to the lack of strength in my hands to write properly.  These pens feel really nice even though my RSI hates handwriting.

Really kind of you to say.  I'm really envious of people with superior line quality, and character separation.

I'm glad I found this thread. Thanks to CPTBadass and terrpn I found a new hobby and can't wait to see my handwriting improve.

Here's after a couple weeks of practice.

Also it writes very well too.

The pen body isn't made by pilot. The ink cartridge is. There is a link to the pen body a few posts above yours.

My wife is a bit excited about fountain pens.  She was born in 1990 and had no idea they existed.  She thought that dip pens were what predated the ball-point.  Honestly that's not a terrible mistake to make as a lot of film didn't glamorize fountain pens.  A lot of fountain pens are depicted in cartoon gags, but again... she was born in 1990 and was a lot more productive than I was as a child.

So my wife got excited... then I got excited about her excitement and decided to show her how much fun these things can be :)

A package arrived today,



Great fking packaging :D



I like interesting colored inks.  I may try a black or blue when I want to be old and boring.



Glass dip to show her a pen that was created around the transition from dips to fountain pens.  Also neat for testing inks.



Noodler's Ahab Flex - Flex nibs are just cool and it's important to know the difference between a hard, soft, and flex nib.



LAMY 2k because eckse is a ****.  It's very good looking,



Very good looking... @_@

I know that diesel packaging anywhere, you guys just gave Gouletpens a nice big order! :P  I've got some stuff coming from them today as well :D. You'll have to let me know how that dip pen is, I've still never tried one. I really liked the Ahab flex but I wasn't that into the Lamy 2K. The plastic is hard for me to grip. Regardless, I hope you two are happy and hopefully we see some writing samples soon :D.

nice haul............. :thumb:

i like dip pens, but all mine are the older steel nib sorty that you can switch up. i have wrote with the glass nibbed ones and they are great for trying out inks.

you will like the ahab..............great pen! i did eventually swap the original steel nib out for a 14k variety :eek:

just a heads up be careful putting exotic color inks in the clear demonstrators- as they will stain the plastic :-\

great to see more people are getting into fountain pens............. ;D

(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you.

the difference in flex is real.  The tines separate very quickly and gap in the tines became wider after completing the mod.  I know that sounds strange but honest to buckling spring jesus the entire nib relaxed.  I had to cut extra grooves/mod existing grooves in my feed and move the feed up just a little bit further towards the tipping.

That's such a neat ink CPT.

I read into it and there are pigments derived from Hematite which has been used in clay jewelry and other crafts for over 1000 years.

Hey so I now belong here too :)  Thanks CPT and others, it is super gorgeous :D  It's a Pilot Metropolitan.
I guess I can't even write b's and o's "properly" if I concentrate since I have shortcutted them for so many years.

In fact CPT and I have had something in the works for a while now that I can't wait to post.  Next week though, I gotta get Massdrop out the door.

I've been practicing my cursive for around a month now and it is slowly getting better. If I try to go fast that's when everything goes to  crap. I wish I had some before and after pictures.

A mix of decent printing, bad printing, crap printing, and half-assed cursive for your enjoyment :D

Oh yeah and fully dry (5-10min) the bleach will not make the color run.  The ink is smudge proof after about 45 seconds.
