Very nice Bronze. I like the very very dark green inks.

 

I love the dark green inks too. Another favourite, although not as dark as Zhivago, is PR Avacado.

 

 

 What a pen! I hope I can get myself one soon :happy:

Great ink color too!

Thanks, the M1000 seem to prefer slightly drier inks though, brings out more of the line variation. Looks like a great nib on the 644G!

Just returned from Krakow. Tried to figure out how to post to this topic on my iPhone and then figured there were better things to do while in this amazing town.

I feel like I could spend the rest of my life traveling from coffee shop to coffee shop around the world armed as in the last photo. Thanks for sharing, Ricecracker!

Its been raining all day... perfect for inking and cleaning...although it is a bit much when you have a dozen pens inked and running.... hmmmm.... how did that happen..

 

fpn_1411331418__1_sep_21.jpg

 

Here are some of the pens... and a few more... time to clean...

I've been using a few today.  I'm getting ready to sell a few.  These are the two I'm taking to work tomorrow.  The Dollar is a keeper, but the Sheaffer will be going up for sale.

Wow, beautiful pens...

Tiny Snail, NICE!!!

Attika, loving the Lamy2000  I have been holding out ordering one for a long time... kind of worked up in my mind to GREAT expectations... someday I will make the purchase.  

KAMM let us know how you like the TWSBI and the inks... 

LAHLAHLAW I always appreciate a nice Esterbrook, got a soft spot in my heart for those pens....

MTBRADLEY. good to write the stuff down, I believe you are right that the experience will serve you well in the future.. the journey is like lifting weights... at first it is hard, you plow through, and then the next thing is a little harder, but you plow through, then pretty soon you will look back and see how far you have come and how much more you are doing.... good stuff indeed... thanks for sharing...

I'm digging the twsbi so far. Stays in my pocket and this is writes very smoothly. One thing I've noticed is the Twsbi has a smaller "sweet spot" then the Lamy nibs.

So glad the mix has behaved and delighted that it bears the name magic. My mix hasn't left my VHS since the day they met!

 

I'd love to know what you've changed about it - always after a new mix, you know me.  :)

This combination is probably my all time favorite for the 2K. In fact, you're making my wish I'd brought that pen with me to work today!

Woah.. I have to re-assess the twsbi Medium. I didn't think the medium was so fine! LOL. Is it a rare sample or are the Mediums that fine? I love it!
