    Ink Review: Kaweco Caramel Brown

    *bumping up a 4-year old thread* Chrissy’s scan above totally nails the essence of this ink. I’d like to add two personal observations here. First, like Kaweco Midnight Blue and Sailor kiwaguro, this is one of a small number of inks that won’t spread on the page at all, assuming non-absorbent paper like Rhodia, Clairefontaine, etc. In other words, it perfectly reflects the true nib width and the lines are very crisp (again assuming non-absorbent paper). I _love_ that in an ink! Second, it sheens a deep, dark green. I cleaned the rim of the bottle before closing it and this is what

    Recommendations for a warm medium-dark brown ink!

    My two favorites are Pelikan Brilliant Brown and Robert Oster Cafe Crema, both are excellent inks.

    Thanks, Wim! (Been there, done that, and I know it can be a bit nerve wracking. Thanks for the hard work.)

    What ink(s) are you waiting for in the mail?

    Ohhh, how long did it take? I ordered on March 17th and they are still languishing in Melbourne.
  9. Dear members, I had purchased as an impulse buy a Parker Maxima that was made in the United Kingdom that has a large size 50 Parker nib. I love the way it writes, but the problem is that it is leaking from the nib. I discovered that the feed is missing two of the fins. Now I am stuck with the pen that keeps leaking unpredictably when I write. Does any one happen to know if such a feed can be purchased in the aftermarket? Or is it made custom? Or do you at least have the dimensions including the length and girth of the nib in millimeters? Please help. Thank you.

    Database mishap - fixed

    Dearest Members and Visitors of the Fountain Pen Nuthouse, Today, around 10 am EDT, 3 pm GMT, we encountered a database problem, caused by a fix gone awry, and fhad to restore a backup. Earlier today we applied a fix to a bunch of annoyances, but one of those was not entirely correct, and it started deleting posts and members. Fortunately we made a back-up prior to doing these fixes, and we have now restored that back-up, iand applied all fixes again except the problem one. We may have lost a few posts and data as a result, as there was a two hour lag betwee

    Database upgrades finished

    Looks like it. I normally do not see anything at all in that spot when no ad is displayed. Unfortunately the standard rules for displaying html and css are generally not as standard as it may seem. Maybe check out a different browser and see itf it is caused by the browser or not. Warm regards, Wim
  17. @NikaaYou asked for some photos of the latest nib, so here it is.

    The new 2021 Parker 51

    I have never seen that deluxe 601. Stunning. As for the regular 601, it isn't bad for the price, and I do love the vintage colors. Unfortunately, perhaps because it uses the vac system, mine has once or twice "burped" ink onto the page. Also, I find the fill system fragile and one that makes cleaning a bit more of a challenge. Finally, it does not come in medium (to my knowledge). On the whole, it just doesn't inspire confidence as a daily workhorse. That's what I thought the new 51 would be--alas...

    Recommendations for a warm medium-dark brown ink!

    MB toffee brown Herbin Cafe des Iles Diamine Saddle Brown Robert Oster Golden Brown or Aussie Brown (may be too dark) L'Artisan Pastellier Callifolio Canelle or Havane (may be too light) Or start with something like Diamine Espresso (which is gorgeous) and warm it up a little with a bit of burnt sienna or something similar? I think there are a couple of Monteverde browns that might work, but I haven't tried them myself so I'll leave them for someone else to recommend.
