M805 Stiff Nib :(  -  8 minutes ago  -  By:  TomosW

  • TomosW's Photo So I think I have been spoilt because early on in my fountain pen hobby I bought an M1000 and it has a great nib. I have always loved demonstrators though and so recently I bought an M805 thinking it would have as soft a nib as the M1000.   It really is NOT! At most the pressure makes the nib slightly wetter, but it is safe to say that thing has no g...

Mb 149 - Need Your Opinions  -  12 minutes ago  -  By:  Old Salt

  • Old Salt's Photo Hello all,   I have a beautiful Montblanc 149 that was owned by my uncle, unfortunately once I received it as a gift and I cleaned it, I noticed that the barrel (single unit) has a crack!    The pen doesn't leak from there but I am not sure what to do. Shall I bring it to MB for repair? in that case, how they will repair it? Is the single b...

My Fountain Pen History. Its Really Bad. Sorry  -  16 minutes ago  -  By:  Lugworm

  • Lugworm's Photo I should probably give a little of my fountain pen history. Much of it will make you either cry, tut or make your hair curl. Its not good. Sorry. I had some dead cheap rubbish as a kid but the first pen but I'm not going to include those here as I can't remember what they were other than messy.   Some years ago I got hold of my Fathers...

  • fountainpagan's Photo Lovely color, but it feels quite dry to me. I'll have to try it in a different pen.      

Lamy Safari Not Writing Properly?  -  24 minutes ago  -  By:  Old Salt

  • Old Salt's Photo Hello everyone   I recently bought (another) Lamy Safari.  It was the 2013 LE Neon version in Medium.  When I filled it with Parker Quink, the pen wrote in a very wet blue instead of the black it was suppose to write in.  I just assumed it was tested before shipping and the company forgot to wash it out properly.   I washed it out...

Sailor Sankodo Kinshi Black Purple Nishikisan  -  24 minutes ago  -  By:  mongrelnomad

  • mongrelnomad's Photo By now, you know me, the old Sailor bespoke ink pusher, I mean, enabler, with yet another exotic ink from Japan. I must say that I am certainly lucky to have this ink, as this particular shop ceased internet sales when the "craze" hit. I can understand the shop owners not wanting to deal with such a situation. So now you must purchase these inks at their...

De Atramentis Black / Brown Ink  -  43 minutes ago  -  By:  fountainpagan

  • fountainpagan's Photo De Atramentis fountain pen inks are  hand made in Germany by Dr. Franz-Josef Jansen, and come in a 35ml glass bottle. The company has been producing inks for about 30 years so there is a proven track record here. These inks are said to be hand made – the entire production process is done manually in the manufacturing center. The thing...

Montblanc Poa 2017?  -  56 minutes ago  -  By:  EclecticCollector

  • EclecticCollector's Photo Hi everyone,   I asked in a boutique in London recently, and found out that this year's POA limited edition by Montblanc would be made to honour a 'famous Italian artist, from the 1500s-1700s'. I was told that the 4810 would be mostly green, but wasn't able to get anything more than that I'm afraid.   If the release dates of previous POA pens ar...
