That Loom is pretty slick! Nice Christmas present!

 

Indeed, I'm very happy with it. It's a smooth writer.

Unfortunately, I didn't come with a converter, and my SI converters don't fit.

Nice bag, and ink, and pen!

 

I stick with the cartridges and flush and fill them with an art syringe. You can get one an art supply store or order from your favorite online pen and ink shop.

But if you'd rather pif that ink, I'm in.

Very nice pen and ink combo.

 

No experience with the Loom so not certain what converter it takes. Perhaps someone who has one will come along....

Resources such as people on FPN say that a Schmidt K2 will fit, and is rebranded by Faber-Castell. Prices seem low in either case.


Anyone owning three or more working pens is in no position to disparage choices by others.

Thanks for the tips, I'll definitely consider the syringe. Also the converter is an option of course.

I happen to like to rotate my pens and ink. So I don't need a whole lot of ink in my pens.

Hey there!

 

Sorry to keep my fans waiting, but I managed to ink up the pen and these are the results.

 

Don't judge me on the handwriting, this is not my best effort.

Lovely. And two paper samples. Enjoy that new pen and the ink!
