Sailor Sketching Pen

bird-sketch

I bought a Sailor DE Brush Stroke Style Calligraphy Fountain Pen about a year ago. It has a bent-up nib that is tipped at about 55 degrees.

I scribbled with it a couple of times and then put it in my pen pot and forgot about it. It didn’t forget about me however, and kept eyeing me as though to ask when I was going to take it out again.

About a week ago I took it out and the nib had dried out and the ink wouldn’t flow. I gave it a few hefty shakes and then another shake and another, and eventually it started to write again.

So I put it down on the desk and let it settle and then sketched this bird. I have to say that I like the irregularity of the line.

      1. Extremely interesting! Never knew such a pen existed.

        One has to be careful with the sign in/out procedure here in WP — I was pretty sure I was commenting with my regular ID, but apparently not so. Oh well … 🙂
