Pens and pencils are technology.
What do you use daily gee? I just got my Rotring 800+.
This is my humble rotring collection and I love every single one of them. Except the 800. Fuck that piece of shit. It looks all nice but when you get to writing the mechanism feels wobbly and cheap as fuck. 600 all day long.
Rotring doesn't produce FPs anymore.
The only ones were rotring 600/newtons back in the 90s.
They look like the capped lava/silver ones in the rotring pics. (Black one available too)
Prices will run high with about 250-350usd for a black/silver one and 400-500+ for a lava finish version.
No :(. In fact, rotring has not produced fountain pens since the early 2000s. Feels bad cuz their design style is absolutely gorgeous. They recently brought back mechanical pencils so maybe fountain pens soon, I dunno. I would buy the fuck out of their fountain pens if they ever brought them back though. Rotring stuff lasts forever.
I have Lamy and Waterman fountain pens but I end up using this bic 4 color pen the most.
I love it for taking notes and studying.
I can write the formula in blue, add notes in green so that they don't confuse me while reading, black for diagrams/vectors or whatever, red for corrections of course.
Maybe if I had 4 fountain pens I could do the same, but dunno, maybe I'd look more like a retard than I already do.
I bought two Pilot MRs (european version of Metropolitan) recently and implanted one of them with Plumix BB italic nib. Also ordered Sailor tokiwa-matsu ink. Imma gonna learn a bit of calligraphy.
Do I look like a poorfag? I prefer platinum
I used them & they write in a smooth manner, nevertheless I've found something better. DONG-A (kek) Korean pens, they're cheaper and way better. Hi-gliders 100 cost like 30 cents each.
>Not going for the stealth look
The black nib/dark body combination gives me an extra 10 wpm writing speed
>Not using a Mont Blanc
I buy these a fuckton at a time. Seeing as I chew my pens I would never get a nice one.
>Not using more cost efficient pen
You can buy 20 of these for $5
nexus minimal fountain pen with bock nib
mine just came in the mail, its pretty nice to use
another stock photo from the website, i chose the matte black, was it a mistake?
I somewhat regret not getting silver.
Jinhao x450 is pretty good but too wet and broad for me. I used like a full converter's worth of ink in 2 days of note taking. Jinhao 599 makes a much finer line but is scratchy and I can't seem to fix the scratchiness with a whetstone like I did with the jinhao. Safari's still my top pen for overall usability.
The Noodler's Ahab is the only pen that respects user freedom. except for the other noodlers pens
Posted pick from online because my moto g has a shitty camera.
Wooden pencils don't feel right in my hand. This specific mechanical pencil is the only one that doesn't either a) feel weird and b) have the lead break at the smallest touch.
I never liked pens since I need the ability to erase my mistakes, not scribble over them or use white-out.
This is all I use. Fucking love it. The extra fine tip is really useful for math notes
Even FP's are cheaper for poorfags, specially if you get something used for a few cents
One of the FP bloggers made a comparison, in which a FP was quite cheaper in the long run than a ballpoint, can't find it though
This is still the king of disposable pens, just don't use the one with "USA" imprinted on it
Unfortunately I don't know about the top one. I know it's chinese, but it was a gift from a friend. It came with a nice box but all the writing on the insert cards were in chinese.
The brass one below it was listed in the invoice from when I bought it a couple years ago:
SH2652 Sheaffer Delta Grip fountain pen, ca. late 1980s. Most Delta Grips were ballpoints and beyond that most Delta Grips went to the ad specialty market for advertising purposes. Much nicer than your average cheap plastic advertising pens. These are all metal pens with satin gold finish with the typical molded plastic black clip and top piece. Fit with gold plated steel nibs marked Sheaffer Made in USA and M for Medium point. Designed for cartridges, but we find they accept the Sheaffer squeeze converters perfectly, so we're including one with each pen (retail value $15). The piston style converters do not however fit into these pens. Sheaffer Skrip cartridges also work fine. Pen measures 5 3/16 inches long and is cylindrical in shape with flat ends. These pens have never been used, they are new old stock that was recently acquired. You will note that there is a tiny hole near the top of the clip. No, the white dot is not missing, these pens never wore Sheaffer's white dot. They were designed for an advertising emblem to be attached at the top of the clip. Perfect pen with a small hole at the top of the clip. Available with a smooth medium point.
(I got mine for $30 but I wouldn't know where to find one now).
The pen is an average ballpoint pen. The pencil is neat how the tip retracts, even while you write so you don't need to click it as much. The heftiness gives a good balance to both in your hand.
I keep wanting one of those because they're the ugliest thing ever.
I have a Rotring Skynn, which is similarly atrocious.
provided you have a heavy style and use the same pen frequently this is likely to be the case but for most people bics are a nightmare where the ink is so gummed up behind the ball you gotta score a big circle in some scrap paper to revive it and push too hard to keep their penmanship from being useful.
After bics became popular the writing style and angle changed to more perpendicular and less flowing - not a coincidence.
I got the method down eventually, with the nib from this plus a fine whetstone you can take the line and handling from scratchy, skipping ,wet and broad as fuck to smooth as hell , dry and extra fine and all places between.
Consider the x450 is about $3.50 delivered
>all these ordinary ball point and gel pens
where is your style gentoomen?
This is my baby.
It gets me all the bitches.
It's a good conversation piece too.
It's made entirely out of metal and it accepts both bottled ink and ink capsules as well. And yes, it is as heavy as it looks and that weight feels great in the hand.
