Thanks!  :D
The clip on mine feels sturdy. It does make the pen less "sleek" to look at, but it makes it easier to carry.  :tu:
It also makes it look a little bigger, in the same way that the feathers on a peacock make it look bigger.
I have the pen clipped to my breast pocket right now.

Tell me if you want info on something specific!

I feel that my last post was a bit of a mess. :facepalm:
Let me try again.

The clip is sturdy, and it doesn't feel like it will come off. I like it.  :like:

True, the clip might make the pen less.. bullet-y.
I don't care, it still looks bullet-y.

The clip gives me no discomfort, and doesn't get in the way at all.

I see no reason to Not have the clip, except aesthetic reasons. Its very useful, to the point that I might not carry the pen if the clip was not there.

And speaking of aesthetic reasons, the clip in my opinion makes the pen more interesting to look at, so there might be no reasons to not have the clip.

Thats a lot of words for a clip. :facepalm:
It can be summed up as: The clip is great. :tu:

Nice pics!
My favourite fountain pens are Pilot fine nibs, pilot v-pen disposable fountain pens and Platinum Preppy fine nibs.

I also carry a Fischer Bullet in my pocket :)

Do anyone here edc a fountain pen? How do you keep them from drying out?


My take is that they are going to dry out and that the fine points might be more likely to do so. I had a fine point Pilot Birdie and that one was more prone to drying out than my Lamy st. Luckily I used the refillable bulb for the Birdie so when it dried out it was a fairly simple operation to open it and squeeze out a little wet ink. After losing it I have two new ones but no bulb and without being able to re-wet it that way it's much less usable.

Aww thanks.  :cheers:
I'm new to stuff like this.
The smoke would have been better if I used fluffy cotton, I think.  :think:
And I have a devil of a time trying to get the pen at a good brightness without washing out the rest of the photo.  :rofl:

Putting everything on a darker surface seems to help.

Coool!  :o  :like:
Time to rename the thread please? Take away the "Unofficial(for now)" bit?  :cheers:  :D

I'll go back over the rules later, some things need tweaking to make them like the other official challenges.  :angel:

Thank you guys!  :cheers:

Just picked up on your Challenge Pablo - good luck looks like it's going well. I really like the Bullet Space Pen and prefer them with a clip as they're slippery suckers that find their way through pocket linings at the slightest opportunity !  :like:

Whoa, this feels so official.  :ahhh
I hope others join soon, this challenge feels like its picking up some steam.  :popcorn:
Thank you Zoidberg, Poncho (and who made the badge?) and other mods! :hatsoff:  :cheers:



First things first, day 9!
I've really gotten into takings photos with stuff going on in them, I-Spy style, but not as good.   :D

"Bigger beatle!" "Its not a... Nevermind."

Thank you! Indeed, its hard to imagine a slicker shape than a clipless bullet, besides a ball bearing.  :rofl:



Last thing... The rules!
I feel that need to be similar to the other challenge rules.
The essence of this challenge is carrying/using one pen for 30 days. Like other challenges, if your job/school/etc requires you to use a certain writing tool besides the one you are using for the challenge, you should do so.  :think:
Telling us about it would be appreciated though!  :pok:

Show content
I said in the first post touching other pens was forbidden. Even if you don't need other pens, this rule is probably too restrictive. I even failed at this rule.  :facepalm:
This rule is kind of like saying you can only touch one Flashlight/SAK/Multitool for 30 days. Too extreme?

I didn't realise it fully at the time, but there are pens lying everywhere around the place, the world. And it only takes a second to absently pick one up out of habit.
On average, I accidentally touch a pen every 2 days. :oops:

Let me think about what I missed...  :think:  :)


Hooked, like everyone else. :D
