luxurypens unorganized? they sure aren't on top of things that's for sure.

@  bluebellrose : (2018-09-16 - 10:53)

maybe that's why platinum canned them

@  bluebellrose : (2018-09-16 - 10:54)

my first thought when Rachel mentioned her distributor didn't have certain plasir colors in fine and only in medium, i was like did Platinum get mad at them again?

@  bluebellrose : (2018-09-16 - 10:55)

since they got canned for the canadian distribution channel.

@  TruthPil : (2018-09-16 - 13:13)

haha

I'm about to do a long-term writing project using Platinum Carbon Black, but I need to decide which pen to use.

@  TruthPil : (2018-09-16 - 13:14)

That pen will have to be inked up pretty much forever once I commit it to this project, so I really need to choose carefully.

@  DasKaltblut : (2018-09-16 - 21:55)

I had Carbon Black it in a Plaisir for 3 years without realizing it - there were no problems.

@  bluebellrose : (2018-09-16 - 22:02)

@truthpil, their new distributor is a european brand distributor. More Lamy and german brands.

@  bluebellrose : (2018-09-16 - 22:07)

hey how is the Graf von Faber-Castell carbon black?

@  TruthPil : (2018-09-17 - 12:58)

@ bluebellrose expensive! hahaha

@  TruthPil : (2018-09-17 - 13:00)

@DasKaltblut Good to know about the Plaisir. That slip and seal cap really works! Unfortunately the Preppy and Plaisir are too thick to fit in the pen loop in the journal for this project. 

@  TruthPil : (2018-09-17 - 13:01)

I'm thinking about getting the latest version of the short Muji pen, 10mm diameter and a Schmidt nib sounds good.

@  bluebellrose : (2018-09-18 - 10:18)

hmmm so Cult pens has Diamine Iron Gall?

@  bluebellrose : (2018-09-18 - 10:20)

39 dollars for 75 ml. It's cheaper than Platinum Carbon Black by bottle Lil

@  bluebellrose : (2018-09-18 - 10:20)

hmmmm. Same price tehe

@  bluebellrose : (2018-09-18 - 10:21)

@  TruthPil : (2018-09-18 - 10:51)

Diamine's iron gall ink is called Diamine Registrar's Ink

@  TruthPil : (2018-09-18 - 10:52)

Cult pens is awesome, free global shipping over 70 pounds and they always have discounts on various brands.

@  TruthPil : (2018-09-18 - 10:52)

Right now Cross pens are 30% off on cultpens...very tempting

@  TruthPil : (2018-09-18 - 10:53)

the Registrar's Ink will write on all kinds of paper but is usually dry so you need a wet writer to get decent saturation. it changes color as it dries and is exposed to oxygen. pretty cool to watch.
