Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll.jpeg


The Rev. Dodgson’s famous nonsense-verse ‘Jabberwocky’, copied out on to a piece of A4 paper from a narrow-ruled ‘RHINO’ pad.

I bought the pad in 1997. The paper is uncoated. Its mass per m2 is not marked.


The pen is my Pilot ‘Metropolitan’, with its ‘CM’ stubby nib.

The ink is Pilot ‘Blue/Black’.


I think that the pen’s feed would need to be slightly ‘wetter’ for me to get the best results from this nib.

At the moment, the line that the nib is laying-down makes the ink appear to be a little bit pale.

i.e. the feed is not feeding enough ink to the nib to give a fully-saturated line, and to fully-showcase the ink’s colour.


The nib does glide smoothly over the paper, but IMO it would be better if it were wetter.
