    Review: Helix Oxford

    This is a review of the Oxford fountain pen, from Helix. Helix is a British brand that, to the best of my knowledge, produces school supplies. The pen is inexpensive and available over-the-counter at stationery shops in the UK. You can probably get it elsewhere also. The review itself comes in two parts: traditional and aesthetic. For more on why I’m taking this approach, see the explanation in my review of the Conid Minimalistica. --- TRADITIONAL/NUMERICAL REVIEW --- Design and appearance: 10/10 Steel-coloured, metal-bodied fountain pen with snap-cap and black plastic section. Sligh
  2. Hello! It's just a thought but maybe there is someone living in Oxford or its proximity who would fancy meeting up, and sharing thoughts, experience and finds over a cup of tea or coffee? --karl

    Oxford Is Just Great

    About a year ago a colleague turned me on to Oxford notebooks, having used Rhodia and Clairefontaine for a long time before that. I love Rhodia, not just the paper but also the design in that wonderful golden yellow. It took me a while to get hooked on Oxford, but once the hook sank in... Some reasons why I've come to prefer Oxford: -significantly lower price compared to Rhodia and Clairefontaine (for example: three thick, 100-page A4 spiralbound notebooks can be had for 8 euros) -huge range of products -every Oxford notebook has margins (except the ones with blank paper), whereas Rhodia and C

    Help Identifying This Oxford

    Hello, I recently managed to get this wahl Oxford, while it was in a bad shape the nib was good an after a sac replacement and a through cleaning and minor polish it was back to its former glory. my question is can anyone give me more information about it and the model, and given that it came with an omas nib (super flex), would you say that it was a frankenpen? Many thanks Jack http://i.imgur.com/9bFIF7p.jpg http://i.imgur.com/UVaOkuX.jpg
  5. I am the proud owner of a Conway Stewart Oxford fountain pen (brown tortoise shell in colour) and I am trying to research the pen with respect to how many were sold etc. One rarely sees them advertised for sale second hand, as opposed to other modern Conway Stewarts. I have conversed with Bespoke British Pens who took over what was left of Conway Stewart and they cannot find any records. If anyone has any information historically on the CS Oxford, or if anyone owns one, I would be grateful if you could post it here. Thanks
  6. At the moment I had an opportunity to try three GvFC inks: Garnet Red, Hazelnut Brown and Moss Green. Garnet Red is boring and I don't like it at all. Hazelnut Brown and Moss Green on the other hand are amazing inks.

  7. Hey Folks I was in Tesco today and notices Oxford Optik paper is half price. It says the offer is on until 5th September, but the ones I saw where: Oxford A5 Wirebound £1 Oxford A4 Refill Pad £1.50 Oxford A4 Wirebound £2 Oxford A4 Project book £2.50 They had a lot of other offers, but nothing FP friendly as far as I know..... Not sure how long the stock will last, but gather up while you can. No other FP friendly paper beats it...Including Rhodia in my opinion. Ren
  8. This has always been an odd little paper. I've known for a while that it and Diamine China Blue don't get along. Whether it's coming from a super-fine nib or being slathered on thick, China Blue will fade away and be barely noticeable after about 24 hours on this paper. Well, I found a new ink it likes to throw down with: J. Herbin Bleu Myosotis. Here are the two inks fresh on the paper: http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/834/87vbp.jpg And after approximately 12 hours: http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/839/8j8l.jpg And approximately 24 hours: http://imagizer.imageshack.u
