- What do you look for in a fountain pen? · First of all, comfort - the pen has to sit nicely in my hand (I have fairly large hands), and write smoothly. Second, I really like pens that do not dry up if I don't use them for a week or two. Third, I prefer pens with built in filling systems or at least a good converter. In the past year or two, I have also found myself attracted to some elegant designs or unusual colors - such as aluminum and brass bodied pens, or special colors like a bright speckled orange Conklin pen, or a deep red or burgundy Sheaffer Imperial... - What kind of nibs do you prefer? My favorite pens have mostly Fine and a few Medium nibs, I like gold nibs, but also find gold plated stainless steel and some stainless steel only nibs to work well for me. - Are there particular models and brands you like? My current favorites are Pelikans (almost any model, I have a few 140 and 400 models), Sheaffer Imperial ( I love their inlaid gold nibs), and Kaweco pens (especially their pocket Sport models)

Vintage DIY-ers interest check
Anyone in the community collect (and repair) vintage pens for use? I find it is often the next step in fountain pen collecting, but it took me about 10 years into the hobby before I built up the courage (and had the income to devote to it). I started with a lot of cheap and broken lever fill pens off eBay and now hunt specific brands and types. However, there’s just something elegant and satisfying in bringing an old pen back to life and pushing it back into service! My latest was a pair of wartime Conway Stewarts, which are uncommon pens here in the US but some of my favorites. [image]

3D-Printed Fountain Pens
[image] You'd think that, with the popularity of 3D printers, there'd be dozens of 3D-printed fountain pens on the market. Thankfully, that's not been the case. I think, for a 3D-printed pen to succeed, it has to bring something new to the table. Something that traditional manufacturing methods can't already offer. To that end, the only project that comes close, in my opinion, is Additive Pens with their Double Helix. [image] They used 3D printing to create what is basically an eye-dropper that would have been practically impossible using traditional methods. [image] What impresses me the most, is that they only implement 3D printing where needed. [image] The cap and section of their latest batch, for example, are turned from Alumilite blanks the traditional way. [image] What do you think of them? Do you want one? I know, I do. You know of other 3D-printed writing instruments that deserve mention? Look forward to your comments. I've created a poll for anyone who'd like to...

While a person cannot prevent aging, he or she can make this period of life more joyful.
