The automatic pen has a very simple construction with 2 metal plates clinging each other in a V shape in order to leave considerable space on the top to load the pen with ink or paint. These pens are handmade in England for over 100 years. The nib is made of non-rust nickel silver and comes with an ABS plastic handle. The ink flows generously from this pen if its loaded right. ————————————————
They come in a variety of sizes, but my favorites are # 3, 4, and 5. They are very versatile and you can write a variety scripts with them. Featured here are few examples of Black letter with the pens that I mentioned. One can use many mediums with them besides ink which I will cover in my next posts. For now, enjoy the automatic pens. ————————————————
Have you ever used one? Let me know about your experience with the automatic pens or if you are having a difficulty using them. I will try my best to answer your queries.
The Parallel pens are an excellent choice for writing Italic and Foundational scripts too. Here are some of the examples of various scripts that I have written with different Parallel pens.
