Zebra G'ing A Neponset  -  9 minutes ago  -  By:  Drone

  • Drone's Photo I spotted a post elsewhere that had a picture of a Neponset with a Zebra G nib, so I immediately got to work. Sadly, the Neponset ebonite feed curves downwards quite significantly. I recall this issue with the other one I have that I put a Goulet nib into. To do that I had to remove the Neponset feed and replace it with an Ahab feed and now it works perfe...

Angled Lines  -  13 minutes ago  -  By:  D B Holtz

  • D B Holtz's Photo I've been trying to brush up on some calligraphy - it's been a while, but I'm enjoying trying. I've noticed a few demo's online that use an angled lined paper as a guide for Copperplate and such scripts.

I miss the excitement and frenzy of buying when I was new to fountain pens; but as an enthusiastic user – as opposed to an actual collector – once I had a couple dozen pens, I was pretty much set. So I buy maybe two or three pens a year, and often at the LA show.   Two pens that have pr...

Ink Review: Diamine Chocolate Brown  -  56 minutes ago  -  By:  Chrissy

  • Chrissy's Photo I have a couple of brown inks to review that I haven’t used before. This one is Diamine Chocolate Brown This is a dark, rich, brown, like really dark chocolate. I never realised how dark it was. So rich and saturated. Almost a sinfully dark chocolate. I didn’t see much shading until I wrote on more absorbent paper, because it’s...

  • visvamitra's Photo Greetings All,   Winter break is here and as any self-respecting, FP-loving English teacher would do, I’d like to fill my free time by contributing to the FPN community.   As has been mentioned in other posts on this board, Penbbs is a group of FP lovers that is like a Chinese version of FPN. Its owner has produced a lot of inks and cranks...

  • max dog's Photo Dear friends,   I have recently come across a huge Pelikan bird and would like to find out more about the history of this huge bird.  The bird measures about 30cm tall and weigh more than 2kg.  Apart knowing that this is a statue made by Pelikan, I have limited information about this bird.  I have attached some photos below. ...

Help Me Out Please!  -  Today, 11:29  -  By:  jar

  • jar's Photo Lets suppose I happen to have a 100 dollars to spend. I just love Japanese pens so if I would have to buy one, which one would it be? I want a gold nibbed pen. Please tell me which pen and where to buy it, that is, where I could get it for a cheaper price than most retailers. Also tell me if buying from Amazon, Ebay, Jsubculture or Rakuten is safe. I am l...
