OK, I've added three sample vials of the Montblanc Homer Greek Blue ink, of which Dennis at La Couronne du Comte has kindly sent me a complimentary bottle
. I've also thrown in ten empty sample vials for participants' future use.
The package is now sealed and addressed; I just need to take it to the Post Office after lunch to lodge and dispatch.
Lee, since you asked me about the O-rings for converting Platinum Preppy, and Pilot Penmanship and Plumix, pens to 'eye-droppers', I think I just found a ready source for something suitable (and arguably better than the purple ones I bought)! There are thin, translucent O-rings on the inside of the sample vial caps. I just pried one out and tried in on the pens listed above, and they seem to be about the right size.
A discussion about objects, techniques and applications should not be a contest of personal values. Your values mean nothing to me and require naught from me, and I'll gladly assume my values equally mean nothing to you and do not impose on you in any way; my dissenting views do not oppress your personal views, when neither of us can claim to represent the majority position or consensus, or speak on behalf of the community of fountain pen hobbyists worldwide. Let's treat each other with due respect prescribed by some entity bigger than either of us without our input and just offer our sentimental opinions of no particular standing with anyone else, without trying to control the narrative, or demand moral support and/or solidarity from others as consumers and users.
