FP68-S. Pilot Parallel Pens (Modified) New Sizes -Set of 4
New Parallel Pen Sizes - Set of 4
(These sizes are not made by Pilot.)

Add these additional pens to your Parallel Pen collection: 1mm, 2mm, 3mm, 4.5mm .

We have the 1.5mm cut down to 1.0mm, the 2.4 cut to 2mm, the 3.8 cut to 3mm and the 6mm cut to 4.5mm. (Pilot does not warrant these modified pens. but John Neal Bookseller does.)

The new 1mm (nominal) is the perfect size for addressing wedding invitations -- though the thick & thin contrast is less than with a dip pen. It is a bit larger than 1.0mm. (You can use the .5mm edge of the pen for fine lines.)

Each pen includes one red and one black cartridge and a cleaning bladder, totalling 4 black & 4 red cartridges and four bladders.

A favorite of Kirsten Doty for her drawing classes.

Choose 2B, 4B, 6B or HB.

FP125. Noodler's Ahab Flex Pen
Noodler’s Ahab Flex Pen. This flexible nib fountain pen produces reasonable thicks and thins from pressure. Use it for larger writing and expressive handwriting. It is not suitable for smaller Ornamental Scripts because the nib can't produce the fine hairlines possible with dip pen pointed nibs. For a slimmer barrel, purchase FP120. Noodler’s Standard Flex Pen. The same flex nib is used in the Standard and Ahab Fountain Pens.

Choose Barrel Color:
Medieval Lapis
Maximum Emerald
King Philip Purple

For filling the pen with ink from a bottle, the Ahab Flex pen has a plunger mechanism that you access by screwing off the barrel. .

This is a fun pen to write with and has an extremely flexible nib - for a fountain pen. You can easily go from thin to thick and back, but the unstressed stroke is far from a hairline. (An extremely light touch and some speed can produce a thinner line.) IThe pen is useless for small copperplate scripts. You can produce copperplate scripts only in larger sizes. You can only produce monoline or nearly monoline writing in smaller sizes. It has potential for wedding invitation addressing where the script is more-or-less monoline perhaps with some more heavily stressed strokes (such as Spencerian). - John

I53-DRK. Walnut Ink Darkening Medium
I53-DRK. Walnut Ink Darkening Medium.
1oz (30ml).

The darkening medium is not an ink but an additive to be used to darken the original ink without losing the unique watercolor characteristics or the ability to lift color or lighten areas.

The darkening Medium is very heavily pigmented. It can also be used straight from the bottle. However, it is so heavily pigmented that it will behave like a sumi ink and stain the paper and not lift as easily as the original.
