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.

Round two fight! It seems the hole problem with my Duofold was the converter. Wit the Quink cartridge the ink is pouring out like a fountain pen should. This pen cost eight hundred dollars. I am going to go back and ask for a new converter. Tomorrow for sure, the store is closed today.

The Quink cartridge is doing just fine. So I know it is not a nip problem. This is the same p en General Douglas Macarthur used to siign the surrender document with Japa. The Duofold is considered Parkkers best pen. Although my preference is the Sonnet. That is likely a more modern pen. It is surely one of the ugliest pens. In fact and the Duofold nib is not as good as the Sonnet. I enjoy using this pen. It is like the Range Rover of pens, ugly, but good. Its the great conversation starter. People start Googling is when you tell them the ugly pen ended WWII.

Alright as usual Sheaffer is on target and relevant. With merchandise license to buy Ferrari they're upping their game. This is the carbon fiber Ferrari pen. Whith the fine tip nib, and the converter loaded with high octane brilliant black from Pelikan. Brilliant is a good description of this pen. Heavy and well balanced, the feel in my hand is perfect. If there was such a thing. This pen is perfectly brilliantly marked and designed. With the Ferrari logo it stands out in the display case, just like an automobile designed by Ferrari stands out in a parking garage. The high rpms of this pen's engine are loud and the exhaust is well tuned. The cap snaps securely on the back of the pen. You can be confident with the snap it won't slide off during your writing session. Usually these branded products are just hype, but Scheaffer's Ferrari performs like an F1 race car !

Precision writing instruments have been produced over time in many countries, currently the Japanese have dominated this field, with the most accurate utensils. Mont Blanc is producing the most beautiful devices. They are not dependable for everyday usage. The most recent meisterstuck pen broke apart under the stress of writing 10 pages in my hand. I will test their service center next, because that pen felt so fantastic in my hand. With the demise of my meisterstuck I have chosen as simple American sonnet manufactured by Parker .

Well, I was going to recommend a platinum preppy in extra fine because it matches everything else, even the writing on thermal/receipt paper if you get the right ink for it, but you might as well just go with any ball point pen ever made if that's the case.

Hello /pen/

This is my first time posting here, as well as my first written piece, and I'm really invested in it. I began working on this a few weeks ago, and I would just like some opinions on what I could do to make it better, what I could add etc. Just general thoughts. I've only written 8 pages so far, and I've hardly revised it.

I glanced at the "Fall of Sazra." The Formatting is better than the other two books . As for the story I dig it it's nice . However don't add letters to the words . Daaaaad as an example. Let the narrator, and letters when the audiobook is released.

You should continue the Dreadnought story. Your style reminds me of Andre Norton. Less conversation and more explanation is a good idea.
