Got myself one of these recently, inked her up with some black swan in Australian rose and she writes like a champ. Makes me wish I got a durable gold nibbed pen a long time ago.

I haven't used that particular model of Pilot, but I'm pretty partial to the Pilot G2 gel pens. Uniball is decent as well, but I have had some bad experiences with Unis that really wanted to bleed all over the page.

I've had that same problem. I'm a lefty and if the ink isn't meted out with just the right volume. The paper and the hand end up a mess.

With the Piliot HiTec, you mean or the Uniball? I've always been a fan of gel pens myself, ballpoints have a tendency to be sketchy, but a good gel seems to be more reliable overall. SMB Balance (a small business blog) ranked the Pilot G2 as the top gel pen. Course everybody has different tastes and not everyone is a gel pen fanatic like me, but for my money it's the G2 for everyday use. I used to occasionally pick up a Uniball, but it's been years since I even bothered due to occasionally ending up with an inky mess ruining my parchment.

The pilot hitec is a different pen. Uniball is advertised as part of Mitsubishi in Asia.

Mitsubishi Uni pens rock hard pens. The Uniball is so smooth. They were my first exposure to roller balls. Roller balls are different than ball points. Roller balls and this fine liner as well use fountain pen like ink. So they are much smoother to write with. This requires their ball to be smoother than a ball point pen ball. They are more sophisticated.

Spend a little bit more when ou visit the stationary store and the Parker 18k tipped fountain pen might catch your sight. I couldn't resist the smooth lines, and brilliant sparkle of the gold trimmed four color pen. There are six visible 18k gold pieces on the Parker Sonnet II pen. This French made beauty is worthy of the royal blue ink it holds in the refillable barrel.

Putting all the beauty of this pen aside. It just isn't balanced right for me and the shaft is to thin. My hand constantly slides down the shaft causing defective penmanship. Perhaps effeminate French hands can hold on the grip better. Definitely, Sloppy and Beautiful

I don't have one yet though. I had a Parker pen when I was in high school but I dunno where that is. I may have had 2 or 3 but only one at a time. I made sure they all had my name engraved in script.

My diplomat has instantly become a great pen by throwing away the super crapy converter. That it was shipped with. I put a black quink cartridge in and now it has a great inflow. It is a fine line nib with a bit of flex if you put a pressure on it.

Inc spews out at a great rate. The numerous absolutely gorgeous, big and bold, which makes a statement in a fine line. Is becomes an extension of the hand. No pressure is required to get this big heavy pen moving across the page. It is absolutely splendid, the way this pin fits into the hand. It may be worth while to attempt and I dropper conversion. I noticed that an O ring came on the threads of the pen. This pig pen might hold 6 cm³ of ink. Maybe even up to 10C c's. If I can successfully seal the golden And white snowflake cap.

The yankees splendid I've got cross are cutting inc in my yota pen. I was considerate of yota carried realizing that pure black would be the shade of the dark side. The yoda pen holds 4 cm³ of being by adding some minor modifications and then additional O ring. I painted the threads with our tegi, which is a gasket forming silicon. Inside the barrel of the other Pan there are small holes. I let the light shine in and located them at the end of the to. The purposes likely for the manufacturing of the pen. It is Made of plastic and the holes of from the injection molding and for snapping on the bottom silver colored plastic cap. I took a small popsicle stick and on the end I place a large dam of RTV. Then I sealed it up using an eyedropper. I filled the pen up with the ink to the bottom of the threads. Then put the overing on the mail threads. I'm looking for some overend's would they thinner circumference because this one sticks out a bit good job schafer .

This was typed by Bixby dictation . I didn't fix the mistakes because I thought they were funny.

This particular pen is made in England in 1945. Conway Stewart dinky writing with cross blue black ink. Which is a pretty nice color. I'm hoping it won't. It needs to soak in a while that was the ink from the dip. This is my Mont Blanc number 34 piston filler. This is a dependable pen and holds plenty of ink. The ink is Quink black. I'll play with the dinky English pen later. When the ink saturates the baffles .

Until then I'll play with the yoda and my number 34. Which is actually a lovely pen. It has a burgundy shaft With an ink window. The cap has a Mont Blanc white star on top. There is also a gold band that says Mont Blanc number 34. The pen feels great in my hand. I'm a left handed pusher and many pens just don't feel comfortable. This one is just right. Literally it is a literary Goldie locks pen. It doesn't announce itself like some other gaudy Mont Blanc. It is not a meister stuck with a fantastic nip art and jewelry. There is just a small slab of gold and practically microscopic lettering. The only give away that it is a moderately priced montblanc pen is the white star on the cap.

When all else fails then it is time to run away. This is a huge eye dropper pen. It is the plastic and stainless steel online macaroon pen from Germany. Now this is the type of pen that can go to school with you for a week or so and not run out of ink. I don't particularly care for the online steel nib. The point is it holds about a quart of ink and the 440 stainless steel nib not only will never wear out. It can also be used for shaving and trimming your toenails. It is definitely a stiff nib. The baffles are starting to let some ink flow. I just seemed to keep losing the sweet wet spot. Honestly I'm glad I added the macroon pen to my collection. I just wish it was translucent so I could see the ink slosh about while I write. I would be so easily entertained by that. Considering the materials this pin is priced right at $10.00 and it comes with several different artistic versions. It is worth it for a school pen.

I'm revisiting the Parker urban with fine tip new. It was not a favorite before because of the lousy ink flow. The constant false starts land hearthsides actually mask this beautifully designed pin one of my least favorite bands. I had bought this plan to be my everyday been, because of the lovely design in the affordable price the urban cost 5 times less than a do a fold, and 2 times less than a sonette. That puts the urban in the price range I won't cry about it I lose it. The problem lay with the poor inflow. The diminutive nib, will only will on the half with only 1 visible baffle with my prime suspect. Since my other Parker nib so larger …

I bought this Baoer fountain pen for $9 online. It has in an iridium tipped nib. This name is bouncy. Nicely designed nibs like this are hard to come by. Baoer seems to be a brand owned by Jin Hua, but it is so difficult to say these days. With so many companies building OEM products. Well I guess that is neither here nor there. This branded Bauer pen has noticeably different components when compared to a jinn hwa pen. The converter of this power is trustingly enough has a little plastic floating ball inside. The ink is Not yet flowing smoothly. That could be the baffles are still filling up with think. I liked the way the bouncy iridium nib tip putting ink on the lines by pressure. When I pushed down harder more in comes out. That is nice. This nip is almost fine. Unless you press down. Then it's nice thick ink. I'm pretty much pleased with this pen. Pricewise, it competes with a plastic pilot fountain pen. The belt is actually gold colored material. Where is the Pilot's belt is just gold colored paint, flaky paint. Nice low cost pen! Baoer 388

I have been gifted a beautiful pen from Germany. It's a lovely Pelikan Souvran medium tipped. Please pay attention to the directions when you unbox and fill the ink in this pen. I'm sure it's expensive. You will be sad if you break it. Instead of a refillable cartridge, this pen is the cartridge.

Remove the cap.

Unscrew the back.

Dip the pen in the ink and screw the back on.

Unscrew it again to bleed the system, allowing three drops of ink to fall back into the bottle.

Screw it tightly, then after wiping you're ready to write.

The medium nib 18c 750 is almost large. This pen writes in bold. Proudly expressing itself with the black and silver lacquer finish. The white gold crown on the CAP sports a pelican, and slide snugly onto the pen easily.

Ways:

> scanning

> use an Apple Pencil, Cintiq, S-Pen, n-trig, or other digitizer

If you do write this way, do you send letters this way, and if so, how?

I think I may start doing this. I think it's much nicer. More personal. Much prettier.

Also, which apps do you use?

The delivery man brought a pilot 778 pin today. I just loaded it with Parker quink washable blue ink. The ink is just starting to come into the nib I cycled the ink 3 times through the converter, and it looks like it took 5 lines to fill in to and even blue color. The Pilot 778 pen came with a plastic wrapper so I knew it was new and pristine when I filled it up with quink ink. It is a fine line fountain pen, with what seems to be an iridium tipped nib. Although it might be copper. It will show over time if the nib corrodes to blue. It certainly is a fine tip. I'm not a fan of these ultrafine tipped pens. This one works well. The ink loaded fast. It is a fine enough tip to draw Chinese letters. The teal color is nice. There is a gold baseball sticker on the pen with the word pilot and the letter F so I'm sure it's fine tipped. Dual gold stripes on the cap with Japan written so I know it's not a Chinese knock off. It's a nice $12 pen.

The red Ferrari race car with the black Scheafer and, the Scheafer F nib connected to the officially licensed and limited edition red pen. It is a neat kit. I'm pretty sure the F on the nib also stands for Ferrari. This is the ink cartridge that came in the Box. The viscosity is plenty slick so all we need is to mount some slicks on the sides of the pen's chassis, and we might be able to drive away winning the imaginary race in front of all the screaming fans. Oh, there are some campaign gals rounding the corner. So, honestly It is conservative. One black stallion on a field of yellow, dancing below the Italian pendant with the word Ferrari stamped on a stainless steel belt letting you know this is the officially licensed product.
