PenBBS 456 Vacuum Filler Fountain Pen Unboxing and First Look
Checking to see if Spee.ch has your asset locally...
I unbox my much anticipated PenBBS 456 Vacuum Filler fountain pen. This is my first vac-filler. I do my first vac-fill on-camera with Iroshizuku Kon-Peki. No, I didn't spill! I didn't post the pen in the video but it DOES post very securely and does NOT back weight the pen. It is a little long for my taste and I don't usually post my pens anyway.
After a disappointing start, some tine spreading and some micromesh, the pen is now writing adequately but nowhere near the awesome experience of my PenBBS 308 "Amber is a Cat" or PenBBS 308 "Cedar".
Stay tuned as I may be posting a nib swap video changing the PenBBS fine nib on the 456 to the Schmidt #6 fine nib I took off my Moonman M600. Something to look forward to! ;) ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veyClYBHRwM
