Look, I have enough trouble convincing my wife that I don't have a "problem". Me drooling on the keyboard is not helping.
That blue does go with my eyes though. Hhmmmmm....

Tina, in case you were wondering about flushing the pen when the ink runs out, I get a little bowl of water (not hot) and draw it in like you would ink.  Several times of doing this might still bring out ink, but soon it will be clear.  When I do it, I dump the water out after a few tries and get fresh water.


Then once done, get a paper towel and with the nib down put the pen in the paper towel and then shake the pen to get water out.  Unless anyone else wants to say I'm wrong, then I let it dry overnight nib down in many times folded paper towel.  I learned this from my brother, who got into fountain pens before I did.


Aren't Edisons beautiful pens?!

Sigh cubed.


What a lovely lively looking pen.


:gaah: Mr. Gray will also make a 14 K nib, semi-flex. :wallbash:


OCD....is much nicer than saying AR.....another day on FPN, another thing learned.

Living in Germany puts me a bit out of the 'slang'.....

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.
