Re: The Official Fountain Pen Thread

I would add that inks, like pens, "like typewriters, they multiply at every opportunity." I love inks, their variety - much of it nuanced - but I got caught up in an ink collecting spree and now have what seems to be enough ink to last the rest of my life.

Re: The Official Fountain Pen Thread

Yes, few people understand why I NEED three different shades of blue   It's definitely easy to acquire way more ink than reasonably needed!

But whenever I lend out a fountain pen (I usually let people try) they ignore my instructions on how to hold it, let their fingers slide onto/under the nib, and then wonder why it's leaking everywhere.  This may be why people only ask to borrow my pen one time...

Re: The Official Fountain Pen Thread

I didn't know this page existed here.  I think it's funny to note just how many typewriter people are also into fountain pens!  I myself am favoring my Pilot Prera.  I love pilot fine nibs, since I I a lot of drawing I need a really smooth really fine point.  Monteverde Midnight Black is my go to in that, but the ink capacity is lacking.  Lately I've been singing my letters with the Twsbi Diamond 580 ALR and J. Herbin's emerald of chivor.  Cliche I know.  It's a good shimmering ink, but the finest shimmering ink I've ever seen is Tesla Coil by Birmingham Inks.  It's stunning!
