Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 10

Several days ago, new VPC member Lina sent our club some photos of her new acquisitions and an email saying "I was craving some line variation in my pens so I purchased 2 new pens [one was the new Conklin fountain pen that was eventually featured here]... Another pen I also recently bought is this Sailor 'Fude De Mannen' ":

(all photos by Lina ~ click on images to enlarge)

Lina:"A very affordable and reliable pen that provides great line variation with its high angled “Wakatake” nib (nib angle 55°) for fine lettering."
"It takes a bit of practice to get used to varying the angle in which I write to get the line thickness right, but I quickly got used to the nib and it writes very smooth and very wet."

Many thanks to Lina for the photos and mini-review of this interesting new fountain pen!
