I don’t know much about this, it’s a mechanical pencil my ex mother in law gave me in 1988 when I started my company. I use it all the time and have never had any problem with it.

A fan favorite of mine! I have the blue hour midsize ballpoint and hoping to add the FP at some point. I have the same water bottle on my desk as well.

Lovely pen - does the nib feeling/feedback change much over the first few pages of use with smoothing from the paper ?

This I got two days ago and use now.
It's the one with the snake on the clip.
Cost me $600 USD.

Good to know - I’m looking forward to wetting the nib of my Izumo when I’m back in the office next week !!

Got a few inks to try out so will have to be patient with those too.

I have removed the pocket clip now as I noticed it unscrewed at the top of the cap.

Looks very slick without and also feels great too.

Can’t wait for the cartridge to run out to test out some new inks !

Wow !! That’s lovely. What is the pen made from ? What beautiful iridescence and looks like a matching ink.

I think the whole ink game is also about to open up for me now too.

been writing more notes than ever at work this week just as an excuse to use the pen.

Finding it tough for my Caran d’Ache rollerball to get any time on paper at the moment. Really is joyful to use the FP.
