The pen to turn to on an otherwise disappointing day. Sitting in the dentist waiting room. Just doing some scribbling.

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.

The Platinum B776 is a lovely blue translucent pen with gold trim bands & clip. The tip looks giant, but it is a very fine line. There is no mistaking every letter and every error. Those errors make for our unique hand writing style. That "style" is so much easier to hid when using a medium tipped nib. So in a culture that values small, I was surprised to find a big nib with a razor fine line. It is excellent. Forcing proper form by the utensil. It is impossible to hold the pen so close to the tip Thus enforcing the proper triangular grip that is what teachers all over the world insist on in classrooms.

This pen in a word is excellence. The Platinum company did it right with the B776 From the twist off cap ensuring no pocket leaks, to the satisfying pressurized spurt of ink when the cartridge is depressed into the nib. The ball bearing in the bladder keeps ink flow at a constant sure pace. I have not found any errors on this pen. The paper lacks pen errors. There are no ink spots or smears. It's a good pen to ink a final draft written essay. Only your own errors will sow up in your writing.

I'm proud to start this new page off with my new pen from Ohto. It's a black lacquer pen with an Iridium point nib. There's a satisfying click when taking off the cap. Pressing down the cap gives another click. Ensuring that the cap is secure, so your pocket won't become stain inadvertently by ink from your Proud Ohto.

That same cap balances easily on the end of the pens barrel shaped cylendar. Unlike the Dude, the Proud has a fine tip, with a smooth cylendar shape. The nib is rubber, down to the iridium pointed nib tip. There is a difficult to remove, but easy to identify sticker on the cap. Just in case the gold embossing Made in "Japan; Proud Ohto" was not visible. There is a bright white Ricker with the stock number and nomenclature. Oh and a barcode too. If I were a merchant, then this is the pen for me. There's no mistaking it. The Proud Ohto is elegant, and economical. The other name, just in case, is; FF-150-BK (Black) [1500]. Just teasing, it is a wonderful pen. Make sure to check the nib when you buy it, but do buy it. This is the great pen to begin your fountain pen journey with.

It's the Schneider One Hybrid N.

Well done, it is hard to believe this pen only cost 79 pesos. That's about $1.50 and it rolls well. This pen has a great ball, and the ink is generously applied when you write. The cap fits on top when writing without popping off. It's a bit overdone on the grip. There's no way to lose your grip on the serrated rubber top.

My blue pen has black ink, and my lack writes in blue. It's my newest fine tip fountain pen by Shaffer. It's balance is superb. The offset color is my own idea. Since Mt collection includes a pitch black medium point pen with royal blue ink. This fantastic royal blue pen should be filled with jet black ink. It's my new favorite pen. The tip is gold and the cap is decked out with a crown and a generous gold striped clip.

For men with big hands, the cap effortlessly balances on top of the shaft without any feeling or fear of loss. Unlike some pens that demand a place at the table for the cap as well. It's swell, since most pens these days have an effeminate flare. This one is both beautiful and manly.
