    Except the one that isn’t. Lamy Swift on far right. They come in some great “engineering” colours such as graphite, palladium , rich blue, petrol blue, stealth Matt black and even apple-fanboy white. Retractable nib coupled with clip prevents pocket marks. These are techno-cool as brushed aluminium aero structures. I have all the colours. It would be rude not to.

    Ever been curious about a writing instrument, yet not enough to research more about it? For a while, the S.T. Dupont Jet 8 ballpoints were intriguing because they cost a bunch when they just seem like click-action pens with colored composite barrels and chrome trim. Just seemed like S.T. Dupont's interpretation of the Parker Jotter, which shouldn't cost much (unless you're paying for the brand name). So while somewhat interested in 'em, I didn't take time to learn more about 'em.

    Well, found a deal on the chrome version, which is composed mainly of metal instead of composite, so now I get to check it out. :D

    What's not fun is that fingerprints show up easily, and how do ya get a photo without the camera showing up in reflections?

    Well, this be it, with the dumb smudge along the side near the top of the clip (didn't notice it till after the shot was taken):

    Anyway, I like how there's a protrusion which the clip slides on, so the clip doesn't rub on the barrel (although, in a shirt pocket, it seems like it wouldn't stay put with such a small area of contact). Smooth mechanism, yet it seems the finish'll either scratch easily or attract fingerprints.

    :cool:

    Get the converter from Amazon, much better than the cartridge.

    I like the eyedropper and a reused cartridge. It's cleaner than a converter and I have more control.

    Do you have any other Japanese fountain pens? I don't have the Muji but I have several Pilot and I'd be able to say similar things about those....

    I have an 03 Plaisir from Platinum. Not as flowy as the Muji, but lays down a very fine line[​IMG][​IMG]

    Hey, nice Fellhoelter.
    I've got a Tactile Turn from Will.
    Somehow, I tend to see way more Fellhoelter pens on this forum than other brands. Aren't they limited on the type of refills they use? Why the predominant presence here on Fellhoelter?

    I believe they take standard Parker refills. I am currently using a Schmidt, EasyFlow 9000. Just like the looks and heft.
