Osmiroid Drawing Pen set, complete with 7 nibs.
Starting Bid: $29.00
I blogged about this set a couple of years ago and put it away afterward. It's time to bring it out and have it do more good than it would have done lying in a drawer. (I'm just plagiarizing myself for the auction text.)
These are compatible with Esterbrook Renew-Points, according toÂ Richardâ€™s PensÂ (scroll down), but I havenâ€™t tried that. There are more than enough nibs here for hours of playtime: Rola Extra Fine, Rola Hard Fine, Rola Soft Fine, Rola Hard Medium, Rola Soft Medium, Copperplate and Sketch.Â The â€œhardnessâ€ or stiffness of the nib is achieved by changing the shape. The soft medium has sloping shoulders to allow the nib to feel â€œsoftâ€ while in use, whereas the hard nib has broad shoulders that taper to a stub-like shape. Even the feeds are different.Â The Sketch nib is slightly oblique, slightly stubby, and semi-flex. (For drawers and doodlers, the Sketch nib is mighty fine.)Â The Copperplate nib has very long tines, which allow it to become semi-flex, even if the metal itself feels like thick steel. There's a Fountain Pen Network thread about the set where you can learn more.
This set will ship from Manila. As always, there will be secret goodies.
I've put the starting price low, so please bid with an open heart. All of the funds from this auction will go directly to the Philippine Red Cross.
