Armando Simoni Club Bologna Extra Wild Dark Side

This pen was kindly lent to me by Emmanuel of Armando Simoni Club Pens.  What I forgot to mention in the video is that the ruthenium coating on the nib appears to be less sensitive to developing “nib crud”, as less ink seems to stick to the laser engraving in the nib.

My Personal Pens: Yard-O-Led Viceroy Grand Barley

I have two Viceroys in my collection: the Victorian finish and this Barley finish.  Both pens are made out of solid Sterling silver and have wonderfully smooth nibs that are a joy to use.  This finish is a little bit more subdued than the Victorian, but both are wonderful pens.

 

My Personal Pens: OMAS Paragon Grand in Arco Bronze

Let’s have a look at the OMAS Paragon in the beautiful Arco Bronze celluloid.  I love this pen: it has a very smooth 18k gold nib, and it holds a lot of ink.  The fine nib is very smooth and an absolute pleasure to use, and the pen has a great size.  The Arco celluloid is hard not to love.  I have done a full review of this pen too, if you’re interested.

My Personal Pens: Namiki Emperor Vermillion

The Namiki Emperor is a great pen, in every sense of the word.  It’s a giant ebonite pen, which is then lacquered with urushi.  The nib is Namiki’s #50 – and it’s enormous and a little springy (contrary to the modern Emperor nibs, which are stiffer, as I understand).  A behemoth, this eyedropper-filled pen with a one-way shutoff valve holds about 6 ml of ink – so I can use this for weeks without having to re-ink it.  If you are interested, I have also recorded a full review of this pen.  This beautiful pen was a gift from Azizah, which makes it all the more special.
