View Full Version : Strike 3 - You're outta my collection!

October 10th, 2015, 04:05 PM
Hi all! I've been whittling down my collection and getting rid of some of the pens that I "indulged" in when I first started using fountain pens. These are ones that I gave a second and third chance, but they just haven't worked into my regular rotation. I like all of these pens, and there is nothing wrong with any of them, they just don't get used as much as they deserve. All of the pens have been inked less than 3 times, and are in excellent shape, with only micro scratches from regular use. They will be shipped with converters and with the original box when possible (the Indian pens didn't come to me with boxes). Prices include USPS Priority shipping in the CONUS only. If you are outside the CONUS, I am willing to ship the pens to you, but you have to understand that it will be EXPENSIVE and you will pay the cost of the shipping. I am also willing to trade the pens for pens on my wish list, and am willing to include cash if necessary to even up the trade. With that said, here are the pens:


L to R:
Pilot Vanishing Point nib + converter, size F, tuned by Tim Girdler: $50 SOLD
TWSBI Diamond Mini Clear, EF nib: $40 SOLD
Pilot Custom 74, F nib (would also trade for the same pen in a different color): $70
Sailor 1911 Profit L, FM nib: $120 SOLD
Namisu Nexus, F "titanium" nib: $50 SOLD
Noodler's Konrad Ebonite, F "flex" nib: $30 SOLD
Gama Popular Eyedropper, F nib: $30
Wality 71JT Eyedropper - Esterbrook 9128 EF "flex" nib: $30
Wality 71JT Eyedropper - Esterbrook 9048 F "flex" nib: $30

Not pictured:
TWSBI Mini Clear EF nib unit. $10 SOLD
The nib is in good shape, but the section is cracked (usable, but looks bad) from my ham-fisted tightening. Just put the nib in your section, and you're good to go.

6 Jinhao Medium nibs $10
New condition, takeoffs from new pens. Perfect for practicing grinding.

Esterbrook 2668 nib: Will throw it in with one of the Wality pens if you want it.

Want List:
Franklin Christoph Model 66 - Med. Stub nib (prefer Solid Ice)
Pilot Custom 74 - F nib (not Clear or Blue)
Pilot Custom 823 - M nib
Pilot Falcon - SF nib
Platinum #3776 Century - M nib (Black Diamond Rhodium or Chartres Blue Rhodium)
Sailor King of Pen Professional Gear
TWSBI Diamond Mini M nib unit (nib only)
Tactile Turn Mover Dark Red and Dark Blue (Machined pens)

If you want individual pictures of any of the pens, let me know and I'll send them your way. Thanks for looking.

Is that a con 50 converter in the Pilot custom 74, or a con 70?

Con-50...it could potentially be upgraded, though. [emoji41]
