Ink Reviews: MB Bordeaux, MB Violet, MB Racing Green, Diamine Orange, and Baystate Blue by Bluesea[_3_]
Montblanc Bordeaux - is a nice dark brownish red that I was looking forward to using. I emptied SwishMix Quick Lime from the Kaweco Ice it was in, flushed the pen thoroughly with water using a baby earwashing syringe-thingy, wicked out the water, and filled with the MB Bordeaux. Nothing...

Speaking of buying more pens... by Bluesea[_3_]
Swisher received the last of the modified Kaweco Sport Ice ED fps. After they're gone, there won't be anymore. I got mine and while the standard short cartridge holds about .5 ml of ink, an ED holds about 2.5...

Change in pen behavior over one writing session? by Aaron Hsu[_3_]
Hey all, Writing about dip pens got me to thinking about a question I have had for a while. I have a set of steel very flexible medium point steel dip pens. They work great, but I notice that over time, when using Encre Authentique, the behavior of the writing changes. That is, when I...

Pen advice needed.. by Rainy
Hi, I want to get a nice new fountain pen. I've used lamy safari before but then someone " borrowed " it. Last few years I've used Rotring Core and I like it well enough. I like the fact that it has a better ink flow than lamy but I liked lamy for having a more flexible nib. Generally speaking I...

Starry Night FPN Ink Reviewed On FPN! by The Drunken Lord[_2_]
A review with a scan is posted on FPN. While scans are often not accurate, it is described as a blacker blue-black, which is what it looks like on my screen. That may not be bad, and certainly, it would be difficult for the FPN'ers to come up with an ink that looked ****tier than FPN Galileo or...

Update on an FPN Idiot's Thoughts on Baystate Blue! by The Drunken Lord[_2_]
The last time we heard anything about the FPN idiot SamCapote in this forum, he was whing about Baystate Blue "permanently" staining his bathroom sink, though in the next sentence he typed that he had gotten rid of the permanent stain with a lot of elbow grease and then he tried to remove the stain...

New FPN Ink! by The Drunken Lord[_2_]
The ****nuts of FPN have named this one, "Starry Night", after a van Gogh painting. The last butt ugly ink they put out, "Tulip Noire", had Alexander Dumas on the label--fitting for the dumbasses of FPN. One of few inks I know of that is uglier than Tulip Noire is Galileo Manuscript. They should...

Good memory? by Donf
Hi All; I was reading through the pop survey in June of 2004. What caught my attention was the number of pens and the exact ink each had in it for peoples pen rotation. Do pen people keep logs of pens with which ink and on what type of paper, or unlike me do pen people just have good memories? ...

Ink Reviews: Orange, Apricot Orange, Quick Lime by Bluesea[_3_]
Conway Stewart Orange: It looks reddish in the bottle, but is plainly orange juice on paper. The resemblance is so remarkable that I wanted some juice to make sure. (I don't keep OJ on hand.) Fortunately, a TV commercial for OJ made from Valencia oranges played and I verified that it, indeed, is...

how to use ink refill? by Tiro Verus
Trying to learn how to use a fountain pen. Got one from eBay. The vendor sent 5 refills, but there wasn't one in the pen itself. There's a little plunger thing in the pen, in a little cylinder. I'd buy one from someone in Real Life (tm) but haven't seen anything remotely affordable. Any...

Fountain Pen Network Moderator Guidelines! by The Drunken Lord[_2_]
You know, I feel sorry for those dip**** FPN moderators who have to read all the posts on FPN. There are three or so moderators on each forum who have to--or are supposed to--read all of the stupid and meaningless comments posted on FPN. That makes up about 98% of what is posted on FPN. Here are...
