輕,精,實 (青金石對筆) No Name Lapis Pen Set

青金石在老筆界中是個人見人愛的顏色,不過…


 

他有一個很叉叉圈圈的缺點,就是他的 Premium 太高了。加上青金石這款顏色沒出太久,不知是款色不吸引客群、還是廠商不愛、還是材料有問題、之等等因素— 導致現在只要是大廠製造出來的 Lapis 筆款,價位都比其他色款高。

 

以前很多籃色筆款都叫青金石,但眾多當中很多都不能真的算青金石。原因在大部份的藍色款裡面只有藍或搭白色,裡面卻沒有青金石裡的“金”所以也只能列為青無金石。不過不管怎麼說,好像只要跟青金石或藍色搭上關係,價格就亂七八糟了。

 

價格亂,30公分敗不下去,只能找小隻馬了。所謂小兒金、小而巧囉~~

Last purchase of 2014 — Pelikan 400 KEF

A great pen to end the year.


 

Kugel Extra Fine— whatever that means. When these nibs are ground to a point that is thinner than a F, differences between them becomes marginal. You will not be able to distinguish whether they are a Kugel nib or a Oblique nib by feel, because they all feel the same on paper, that the point is so fine.

 

At least for me, I can’t tell whether I am using an EF or KEF as the point are so damn thin. With these points you have use a light hand to enjoy them, and if you are ham fisted, don’t bother with these “EF” type of nibs, they’re a scratch-a-lot!

 

I have bought and owned my shares of Pelikan 400s, and at the end I found their EF nibs just doesn’t suit my taste. I do fond their F nibs, though. Lovely!
