    That Fairchild is my favorite; it has the best nib among my dip pens. These 19th-century gold pens require a traditionally light hand (which I don't have), regular tweaking and a well-maintained tip (since there is no iridium), so I tend to abandon dip pens one-by-one until I am forced to fix the bunch.
    You are right Fred, I agree completely ...
    I have several dip pens 5-6 and they are century old antique pens. Out of them I have the top pen Mabie Todd but It is without the original Nib. ( I am waiting fo my luck to get it one day ) all the nibs are very fragile and as they have no toppings and already worn out or having lot of issues of alignments. Splatter every time as they are not tolerable for pressure or for unbalanced slight hand movements. Right paper and ink too change the whole dance, and makes you frustration.

    Another writer I used today a Vintage Platignum pen with a Waterman ''s red nib.
    This is a test writing of my home made THAMES INK ( mix of Thames water and walnut ink with golden yellow )
    Ink is still on the tuning stage but already looks well in Dip pens and Fountain pens.

    Like it. Has a kind of faded, vintage look.

    Recieved today.
    I think these pens are called LADIES PENS.

    But I have bought this to prove this a unisex pen.
    It is the century old vocabulary they used to put the humanity in a box

    (Kings and queens used their identity as the masculine and feminine and the lower level the rest of entities are male and female )
    Interesting pen suits for
    MASCULINE- OR FEMININE
    OR as well as for Male and female too.
    Or for ladies and Gentleman or Gentle-woman too.
    Yes, you have to be extra care as they are very sensitive need lot of attention.

    My most uncomfortable Chubby friend in my Pen box! It is there only for the look and the chubby design.

    Pelikan M120N Iconic Blue, broad nib, filled with Pelikan Edelstein Olivine, a charming and voluptuous writing experience.

    Parker 51, fine-to-medium nib, filled with Waterman black, the Waterman gives this pen a more generous line than some other inks do, but the line remains just that bit too narrow for me.

    Aurora Hastil, generous M or B nib, with Parker Quink black. This is an unqualified delight. It is the third and last in a backward progression that began (for me) with a Cross Century. I perceived that this wasn't the very first generation of thin cylindrical metal fountain pens, and went one generation farther back, with the Montblanc Noblesse and SlimLine. But that wasn't all the way back: Montblanc got started along this path by commissioning a rebranded Hastil.

    So I went the rest of the way, thus reminding myself of the rather difficult principle that one should ideally buy the real thing first, not last. I bought a Hastil, and although the earlier pens have given satisfactory service, I am now in the land of heartsease.

    Just inked a Conway Stewart 388, 5M nib, English, late 40s or early 50s, that I restored to working order.

    It's rather delicate in my large, weatherbeaten hand, but I love how it writes: such fluent grace.

    Wow--a very cool pen, and what beautiful writing. If you don't mind, which ink is that?
