David, I think you are correct. The barometric pressure plays a huge difference in my eyedroppers.


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

We now have a sample with same paper, same ink, same pen but two different writers... And it is still interesting how they look different...

My scanner is out of service so I'll share pictures for now.

Amber, the Jinhao X450 with the new grind is ready. I has a 0.75mm line so pretty much it is a Broad Cursive Italic (if I understand the classifications right, but apparently no 2 manufacturers agree anyhow).

 

I did manage to make the CRV wrong by confusing 2 pens, at least I noticed and corrected the sheet.

 

I can smell the scented inks when in the sample bottles and a little bit on the nib, but on paper not so much.

Sodul, I write BIG with double BROAD cursive italic nibs.  Your handwriting is lovely and wonderful.   I like what you have done there and love the squirrel.

Thanks, I'll keep them going. I did not get the numbering system. Is it in reference to an index/catalog of inks that you maintain?

Wow great matches!
The numbering system matches the ink a day in CRVs. See the link in my signature:  366 Inks in 2016.  I also need to post your replies there. I tried the Thorton cartridges early on in my experience.
