Hello Luis & Tom,    I feel the same way about Miles Davis Blue ink. As a genuine fan of various shades of blue, I bought 3 bottles last year. Very pale & disappointing. Though I prefer F and EF nibs, I will definitely try it in a wider nib soon. Coincidentally, I put the 2 unused bottles on my table recently at the DC pen show, and there was no interest during the 4 days of the show.  Luis, thank you for the wonderful photos, and Tom, for your great photos which I have always enjoyed. Best wishes, Barry

Luis, you've almost convinced me to get a bottle of Lucky Orange when I can.

Hi there,

 

I think my photobucket account won't work for posting photos in this forum after all, I will have to figure out a different way to do it.

 

If you guys know other free server I could use I would appreciate the input.

 

Cheers.

Hi there Cyrille,

 

I have a Flickr account now, but I tried to attach a photo the same way I did with Photobucket, copied the link from Flickr (Share, insert and BBcode) but then FPN says I cannot attach that extension, can you please tell me how you post your photos?

 

Thanks,

 

Luis A.

Holy moly you have quite a collection, I would love to have all nib sizes, I think you are missing only the obliques!

This post had me thinking of the MB #9 nibs I have. Not all of my nibs are mounted in 149s. Some are custom pens and some are loose. In my accumulation I think I have every non-bespoke nib width, every nib type (tri-tone and bi-tone, 14C, 14K, 18C, 18K), and every feed used. Sometimes collections kinda develop themselves without trying. :o  :thumbup:

 

To be fair, I don't have any platinum or regular rose gold nibs any longer. I also do not have any of the limited edition city 149s that have special nibs, and forget about the skeleton pens and upwards in price. I did manage to pick up a Hemi and a few Dumas pens though. I also have a few of the old war time steel 250 (aka #9) nibs I picked up over the years. And of course, no 149 sucker like me could live without a 75th and 90th anniversary pen.

 

This post is just reinforcing how much I like the MB #9 nib.

 

If anyone knows for sure if the ever made a factory OF, then I have one more width to look for.

 

Yeah, there may be a problem here.

I think they did, back when tester pens were 149s and not 146s, but have no data to put behind it.
