    Parker jotter + fisher space pen insert. The ability to put a piece of paper up against a wall and write all over it is awesome. The jotter is classic quality without being totally over the top. The cost isn't so high that when I get penjacked I don't need to hunt people down. They fit in small pen pockets and also work on write in the rain paper for cue sheets...

    Got an email from Schon Design today - there's a load of 'factory seconds' on their webstore at the moment, which are actually just pens leftover from shows he has taken them to. It includes the Ti one that I have, for only $150.

    He also has 2 new stainless pens available.

    Oh, and there's a discount code for an extra 10% off: springishere

    think of it like the clincher/tubular debate

    Ok... I need some input.
    How do you sell a pen?

    Ebay is dangerous, and they
    just sit on Craig's List.

    What venue do you use?
    Pen store?

    I have not sold a pen yet. If you have the same chirality as a young graduate corrupt them with a nice pen and your favorite ink.

    Best,

    fountain pen network is pretty good for fountain pen stuff

    there is probably a subreddit for this as well.

    I'm looking for a gel refill for a Parker Jotter with green ink and a tip of at least .7mm. Any leads?

    Just to answer my own question, in case anyone else has a future need for a green refill for some odd reason.

    I tried a Fisher Space Pen refill in green, but the shade of green was too dark for my purpose, and the nib fit slightly loose in the tip of the pen barrel (SS Jotter), so it wiggled a bit when writing and clicked.

    I then went to a Moleskin refill, which has a much brighter shade, fits snuggly in the pen barrel, and writes very smoothly. Success. I'll probably pick up a few blue and black refills for other pens, too.

    Any luck yet?

    My Render K is my primary work pen. It's in my hand every time I get up from my desk, if for no other reason than I like to have it in hand. I try to be very conscious of not setting it down somewhere by accident!

    Still no luck. I've snuck into everyone's office. It's gone. Considering replacing given the Black Friday sale they're having.

    pilot custom 823 in clear with the 14k FA nib

    thing is pretty slick, the FA nib replicates writing with a brush

    In some ways a "slower" pen improves my handwriting for a longhand card or letter.
    If the ink is too slick or slippery, the pen can almost get away from you.
    Some of my neatest notes to friends have been done in pencil. Just wish the lead was darker.

    different nibs have different amounts of feedback

    if you have a pen you adore but the nib doesnt jive with you there are many nibmeisters you can send the pen to for adjustment

    I just bought a nakaya writer with the discontinued ao-tamenuri finish. Rhodium tip, modified to be broad italic. I hope I don't end up regretting it... it's way more than I feel completely ok with spending on a pen.

    These are probably the fountain pen equivalent of a Bikesdirect.com single-speed, but today I received 6 Pilot Varsity disposable fountain pens.

    I got them on a lark, but so far so good. The ink is nice and black, without any issues. Obviously no nib will ever be as smooth as say, a Uni-Ball Jetstream (IMO the smoothest and best affordable pen out there – you owe it to yourself to try one if you haven’t yet), but at $2 per pen, the Varsity’s pretty cool. The only real issue is that they aren’t easy to find locally, and you may have to go online.

    the only place a fountain nib will be 'rougher' than a rollerball is with very fine nibs. A properly tuned medium or even fine nib can be smooth enough to bother almost all writers

    with the varsity I'm pretty sure you can pull the feed unit out and refill them if you want
