I thought it would be interesting to talk about the increasingly popular architect nibs, also known as Hebrew or Arabic grinds. My personal (one and only) architect nib was ground by Salman of the Toronto Pen Company. I quoted a price of $45 CAD for this grind in the video: that should have been $50 CAD – sorry!
Le’s compare two gorgeous red pens side by side.
In this new series of videos, I chat about my pens. There will be no writing samples here: if you’re interested in that, please check out my reviews of the individual pens or see my Personal Pens videos.
In this fifth installment, I talk about red pens.
This beautiful pen was sold to me by the one and only Sarj Minhas – the One Man Pen Show.

The Classic Pens LM1 Flame Red is a large pen, but it is smaller than the Classic Pens LB5 made from the same diffusion-bonded acrylic, and it was limited to 500 pens (375 fountain pens and 125 roller balls). I love this pen, and I believe it is a great pen for everyday carry. I have not yet done a full review on the Classic Pens LM1, but I will record one as soon as I have time.
