YEP! Thank you. I have Fibromyalgia and just before it rains, I really hurt. Thankfully, I live in the desert.  I'm happy to report, I have all the shipping caught up!

:( Oh man, that sounds awful. I'm glad you live in a place where it's more manageable to deal with. 

I received your excellently packaged shipment on the 24th all safe and sound. Galileo Manuscript Brown is a beautiful ink, and FPN is blessed to have it as their exclusive. :D Took me a while to post about it because I wanted to test it out on a few different papers before reporting back. So, I've made an imgur album of all the different papers (10 types) it's on, plus an intro where I also ramble about the initial paper I tried and the pen I used.

The tests on the other papers are at the bottom of the album. I didn't want to clog up the thread too much. Thank you again, amberleadavis!

GBD, I'm so glad you are enjoying the ink. I'm really pleased with it too.  The VCV is a little more smudgy on the Tomoe River paper, but then it does sheen so that's cool too.  We'd love to have your GMB review on the Reviews thread.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Sure! I wan't able to find a thread specifically for GMB reviews via a search for "Galileo". Is the thread named something else, or should I just start an individual thread for this mini review?

An individual one is fine, if not better than tagging on to an existing one. Please do use the Upload tab to upload pictures for the review, however. That way they will not get lost anywhere in the digital void outside of FPN ;).

 

Warm regards, Wim
