The Nib acquisitions for 2022

Wow, that's nice! Where did you find that gem and did it have a box or case? Sentinel model, right?
It was listed on EBay as a restored Sheaffer Snorkel Sentinel. The seller had several Snorkels, and, they all looked good. It functions as it should, and, writes well. There was no case with this one.

I got these in over the last few days.
The vacumatic Parker “51” is a restored pen in Cedar Blue with a medium nib. This one came from parker51.com. The inks, Diamine Pelham Blue and Waterman Mysterious Blue are both nice. My hunt continues though, as they are both darker than I’d prefer. The Rhodia Notebook came in last week.
 
Yesterday I received a older Parker Jotter and a nib/feed assembly for a Parker 45.

Today a Lamy 2000 with a F nib arrived unceremoniously tossed in a bag. No instructions just the pen. Lamy’s American site doesn’t have them listed among their pen instructions. It is obvious enough and I can search, but, I guess those luxuries only come when you pay full price.

Also a 12 pen case I have now half filled with fountain pens.
Oh a loupe, another rubber grip strip, and, some silicone grease. I have so much ink now, mostly blues. Unless one of the samples really knocks me out I won’t be ordering for a while. There is another pen I want. Another vintage slip cap piston filler. I will wait till after I move.
