Part 3 in this rather difficult thing I have tried to do. I'm not sure that there is anything one can tell in conclusion rather than the ballpoint pen area is beyond huge. Anyway, a few things I learned during this self-imposed test.
PART2 of me trying ballpoint pens. This is mostly a short test and commentary of cartridges and some pens.
First part of a take on Ballpoint pens. This is the chatty part---
Tibaldi is an old classic pen manufacturer from Florence Italy, now located in Bassano del Grappa. After my Modello 60 pen from Bononia I was really pleasantly surprised, and seeing a new cigar shaped pen, I had to buy it. The pen is this time slightly larger than normal pens, like the LAMY or Metropolitan. The pen posts and becomes really long. The pen comes with two cartridges and a converter.
The pen takes International short cartridges, can most likely be fitted with a international converter, but that might shape it to not fit a normal international feed afterwards. So, it is akin to that Chinese way of international standard, there feed nipple that the converter/cartridge stick to - is just slightly larger than the international pens elsewhere. The can be posted and posts pretty securely. The pen is rather slim and lightweight.
