FPN appearing slow
Due to a continuing DDoS attack, and a hardware malfunction, FPN is moving only slowly. Hosting Support is dealing with both issues, but unfortunately both take time. Until these both resolve, FPN will continue to be slow. ETA is not available yet. Apologies for the inconvenience.
Warm regards, the FPN Moderator & Admin Team

I have about 10 filled and working pens all over my office. The Sheaffer's are:
Blue Snorkel Sentinel with medium nib with Visconti blue. I got this as NOS and I can't believe how well it performs.
Blue Snorkel Valiant with fine nib and PR DC Super Show blue.
Matte black Targa with Noodler's Baystate Blue (it can handle it).
Black Imperial IV with medium nib and BSB (it can also handle it).
Gold flutted Targa with fine nib and PR Chocolat.
I fill a pen and it stays somewhere in my office until it runs out of ink. At that point I clean it, put it away and replace it with another pen from the same manufacturer (mostly). About half my pens in action are Scheaffers and for the most part, they are my favorite pens.

- Craftsman TD, F, P.R. Chocolat
- Legacy 1, B, Lazzaroni Emerald Green
- Intrigue, M, Sheaffer Blue
By the way, all are nice writers, but whoever designed the inner working of the Intrigue should be suspended by his thumbs for some days and invited to find a new career in some field other than mechanical design...

Daddy, please no more pens - we need food, clothes, books, DENTISTRY...

The Targa is presently sitting after I cleaned it. Time to put it back into rotation.

ANM: I love that Amber Glow acrylic, try it with Havana Brown, or FPN's own Galileo brown
Peter: I love that ink, has great shading.
Roger: coincidentally, my Marine Green is also an Autograph (last filled with Lierre Sauvage green ink)
NABodie: what year or clip style on that Black and Pearl?
Now looking for a Sheaffer OS Balance with a Stub nib or a Music nib

Still need me to find some different colors, too bad they don't support fountain pen aficionados in my city.
