    Well, there are different users, some like Sailor, some like Aurora, and some like Parker 51. For some, smooth is a plus, while others cease to understand when they write, and when nib don't touches the paper, it's so smooth All people are different and it is good))))
    I need all my pens to sing with feedback. I mostly go for vintage nibs as most the time every pen is unique and have different character in writing.
    As far as feedback concern most vintage nibs have that effect in writing. Also added springy action in well controlled pressure gives a nice flow to it.

    Hi everybody! Today, by chance, I want to show you the flagship of one of the oldest but still existing brands and give a little honor to another Ukrainian hero – Oleksandr Makhov!

    Waterman Edson Ruby Red (made in France) F11006

    The shape of body is torpedo-shaped, tapering to the ends, very similar to Parker 51 shape but on an enlarged scale. The body and grip is made of translucent resin by dark ruby ​​color with brass threaded collar. Most reviewers believe that this nib is inlaid, but this is not the truth, although it has an unusual shape and looks like extension of body. Instead, the section is inlaid with gold stripe, which on the side of the nib personally reminds me of a stylized letter W. The filling system is cartridge-converter by international standard. Cap on snaps (3 pieces at the end of section).

    Hello! Today, a small review of typical EDC pen. It is one of the youngest representatives of the Japanese industry with solid gold nib.

    Pilot Custom Heritage 91 Black SF (made in Japan) FKVHN-12SR-BSF

    Heritage is a legacy, so the shape of the body is similar to the early fountain pens – straight cylindrical with flat ends. In general, this model is considered middle-class and is the sister of the more common model Custom 74. The body is made of black resin with rhodium-plated fittings. Filling system – cartridge-converter, its proprietary Pilot format. Cap on thread, 2-way threads, opening/ losing in 1 1/4 turns.

    Hello everybody! Today I want to tell a little about one of the youngest Italian brands, but at the same time with a big tradition – this is the Maiora brand. I would also says personal thanks to Nino Marino, Oksana Kit and Gianfranco Raimo for their support during this difficult time for me and my country.

    Maiora Mytho Origine (made in Italy) handcrafted with heart

    I would like to emphasize that this model has a purely Italian, recognizable, iconic design – straight cylindrical shape with conical ends. The main material of the body is black and orange resin. I don’t know is Delta first use this texture or not, but this texture with this colors it mostly associated with Dolcevita line. Filling system is cartridge/converter by the international standard, and by the way the converter with thread. Cap on thread also with 3-way thread, opening/closing in 1 turn.

    That's a lovely pen Andrew.

    One idiotic question:

    You often post two photos of the nib, with and without the logo. Why?

    It's not one side, it's two sides: top and bottom. This is sometimes important, especially for vintage nibs, where code information can be hidden. Another interesting is texture on some nibs from glossy to brushing. And photo of the reverse side gives information on the method of putting data: stamp or engraving. So it's no less interesting than everything else))

    So, I could not resist . It seemed to me after the test that 0.35mm would be too much for portraits, so I decided to reduce the size of nib and ink flow a bit, and regrind it into Drawing nib. This is not quite a review, but for some reason I wanted to share it.

    Hao! Once upon a time, when I was just starting to get interested to fountain pens and was not so tempted many pens, I was holding this model in my hands and I think it was didn’t comfortable pen like as Vanishing Point which is one of my favorite modern fountain pens for drawing. I also did a review at Decimo, so I decided to get acquainted with Fermo again and bought it late last year almost along with the steel Lamy 2K.

    Pilot Namiki Capless Fermo Diamond Silver (made in Japan) FCF-2MR-DS-F

    The body in shape is similar to Vanishing Point but slightly different in small nuances, I can say that it is more straight than VP. Main material is brass coated by metallic silver lacquer with rhodium-plated stainless steel furniture. Filling system is cartridge/converter, by its proprietary Pilot format. Capless format, ie without(less) cap, so there is no cap, the nib is retractive by turning the handle(knob) at the end (~ 1 full turn).

    Hello everybody! Today I want to show you another one of the modern Italian fountain pens brand. This pen came to me last fall, but the review I can make is only now.

    Leonardo Officina Italiana Momento Magico Black glossy (made in Italy)

    I can say that the shape of this pen has a purely Italian design – straight cylindrical form, with slightly tapered ends, conical tops, and traditional Italian clip in the form of roller. Body materialblack glossy resin with rhodium-plated metal accents. The pen has an ash-colored viewing window for ink monitoring, which is slightly visible when cap is closed. Filling system – is a real piston-filler, tank volume – 1.5ml. Cap on thread, close/open in 5/6 turns and 3-way thread.
