Toothy Journal Without Bleedthrough  -  A minute ago  -  By:  pepsiplease69

  • pepsiplease69's Photo Hello,   I've been using an Eccolo World Traverler 8x10 journal as my day to day writing notebook. I'm left handed and have really enjoyed using this as I never smear it with my hand. I have a Clairefontaine notebook that doesn't have this property, and it's bothersome.My journal is almost out and I'm looking for a replacement, and wanted to see if a...

Vintage Shellac Repair  -  8 minutes ago  -  By:  FarmBoy

  • FarmBoy's Photo I have and old pen and the threads for the cap have come undone. Sometimes when I try to remove the cap, the barrel comes off instead. Is there a brand or style of shellac to use to reattach the threads?    One a related topic, how to do you loosen shellac?

Signing Pen Under $500 Usd  -  16 minutes ago  -  By:  jameswatts

  • jameswatts's Photo What would you recommend for a signing pen under $500 USD? It would be for significant documents and contracts. It will be used for more than one document over the course of 12 - 18 months. Is $500 USD a good cap or should one be looking in a higher price bracket for such a pen?

Diamine Ancient Copper  -  22 minutes ago  -  By:  Reed_thoughts

  • Reed_thoughts's Photo I'm not sure what colour I should call this ink: is it red, brown, orange? It's quite pretty, and I love its dark outlining at the edge of the letters. Thank you so much Tas for this sample!   I'd say the flow is medium, not too dry, but not very lubricating. It doesn't work very well with flex nibs. I get a lot of railroading.   Many have exper...
