inverted nib Jinhao. Great for changing stoke size when doodling.  Perfect for this gloomy day.

Sorry for the faux-pas!  I'm using Rohrer & Klingner's "Blu Mare" --a bit slow to dry, but really great color.  

 

And your Eisenstadt is really supreme!  Beautiful pen, ink, and hand!  

No "fox paws" here!  Just a beautiful blue ink....and beautiful handiwork!  Of course now that I know the name I need to find a bottle, for the two times I am going to write with the ink!  : :D

Noodler's Ahab inked with Noodler's Walnut. This is the first time I've tried a brown ink and I like it a lot! Also up top is my Pilot 78G (in a Metropolitan body) where I used Noodler's Navy. Such a nice ink, love that shading, although you can't see that in this picture, of course..

My Waterman 14 wet noodle eyedropper shows off some new KWZI iron gall inks. It has a slip cap and is one of my oldest pens, and my only wet noodle nibbed pen. After over a year, I'm just now getting the hang of working this nib! Rhodia 80g dotpad paper.

It's prettier from that angle because you can see the gold.

Great color on that 78G, much better than the flats.

I am practicing writing an ampersand.  My old version is a bit dated and plain.

Ha!

 

I got into a right state and couldn't do all the squiggly bits anything like as well as you - so mine sort of became this.

The Justus is a very impressive pen in person. I love the size. Does yours have a sort of cross hatching pattern? The Justus on nibs.com looks like a vertical pattern. I like the pattern I see in your pic.

There's a little metal/gold piece on top of the nib above the slit. You can turn the section on the Justus and that makes the metal piece move in or out. Moving it out makes the nib stiffer, moving it in allows the nib to flex.

If i read something good about a cheap pen, there i go.. So today i received a clear Penmanship and it is all i heard about it. It also presented me with a nice blob of ink two times out of three that i uncapped it to use it. Tomorrow i should receive the all black one. I bought it because someone said that "somehow" the nibs on those where better than the ones on the  clear pens. Anyway, i want to remove the nib and place it on a Metropolitan, but by the look and feel of it, i think i will use both pens as eyedroppers to doodle away my lazy hours in retirement down here in Florida.
