About Piston Filler Pens

The piston filler is one of the simplest fountain pen filling systems. A knob at the end of the pen drives a piston which sucks ink into the pen. You simply turn the knob at the end of the pen as far as it will go, place the nib in the ink and turn the knob the other way.
 
Screw piston fillers were first developed in 1820 and became very popular following the release of the original Pelikan fountain pen in 1929 which used a screw piston  filler. Piston fillers are still used in several high end pens including Pelikan, Omas, Pilot and Sailor.


About the Nibs:

Fine Nib:
Chrome finish.
Line width 0.4mm.

Medium Nib:
Chrome finish.
Line width 0.6mm.

Stub Nib:
Chrome finish.
Line width 0.3mm horizontal to 1.1mm vertical.
A stub nib has a wider than normal, oval shaped tip. It makes a broader line vertically and a thinner line horizontally. Normal nibs have a round tip and make the same thickness of line in any direction. A Stub nib is similar to an Italic or Calligraphy nib but the variation in line thickness is not as great, making them suitable for normal handwriting. Unlike Italic and Calligraphy nibs, the Stub nib has rounded corners and edges which makes it very smooth and easy to write with.
An easy to use nib, ideal for beginners and for making your handwriting a little more versatile and distinctive.

Flex Nib:
Antique steel.
Line width from 0.3mm to 2mm fully flexed.
Flex Nibs are simply nibs that are more flexible than normal nibs.  When you press down on a flex nib, the nib’s tines spread apart, making a broader line.  Normal nibs are rigid, with little flexibility. If you press down too hard on a normal nib, the tines may spread apart but they will dig into the paper and will eventually stay apart. The direction determines the line width with Stub, Italic and Calligraphy Nibs. The downward presssure determines the line width with the flex nib. Their ability to make varying line widths in any direction can produce very interesting, attractive and unique styles of handwriting.

Flex nibs take a bit of practice to master but produce a unique style of handwriting that is a reflection of the user's own handwriting style.
