Guy Placed on 18-01-2016 when my pen (liliput fireblue) arrived today, there was still enough ink in the nib from your test to write more than a notepad page despite it just traveling by air thousands of miles. i usually go with a /M/ nib or a stub, but the /F/ 14k nib you so kindly mounted for me seems to be a perfect match for this pen. the pen wrote without skipping a dot until it ran dry and then it stopped. i think only one character faded out. i then put in a j herbin 'blue provencal' (sp?) cartridge and the pen picked right up and started writing smoothly and within a few words took on the lighter blue color of the new ink.couldn't be happier with the purchase, the price, the service, and the shipping. again, can't thank you enough for the great service. /guy"
