  1. http://kaffehauz.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/pen.png The Pelikan M1000 is the largest fountain pen in Souveran range. It is a distinguished signature pen which features a flexible 18 carat gold nib with rhodium decoration. The M1000 has a brass internal mechanism, 24 carat gold plated trim on the Pelikan clip and rings. This model is Pelikan's signature Green striations with black cap and filler knob - the Black stripes are actually transparent, so when the pen is held up to light, you can see the level of remaining ink. Also, you can just about see the mechanism moving through the stripe

    Noodler's Dragon's Napalm

    This is the first ever Noodler’s ink I tried. I got a sample as a part of Goulet Pen’s Ink Drop. It is hardly the most mainstream colour, but it turns out it is not as unusual as it seemed to me when I was making the hand-written notes below. When I was writing the notes, I used an artificial lighting and as I later found out the ink appears quite different on daylight. Under a typical incandescent or even fluorescent light, Dragon’s Napalm it appears almost pinkish. However, in daylight its colour is much closer to, in my opinion somewhat more universally usable, peach or light orange. Drago
  5. Knowing that there are many other reviews about first impressions, and tests in depth, I would like to add my general ideas after using this pen regularly for the last 6 months... I will not go into design, box, looks, etc. I liked them, obviously; otherwise I would not have bought it. I just focus on how it performs as what it is: a writing instrument. The excellent. (As in top of the class). Most intriguing feature that outperforms my expectations, is the material. That lava thingy. It is in feel and durability like a basaltic rock, yet very light. http://s21.postimg.org/autra6h47/20
  6. This has recently been posted by Project Gutenberg, which is digitizing everything in the public domain that they can get their hands on. Scientific American, Vol. XXXIX.—No. 6. [New Series.], August 10, 1878FOUNTAIN PENS. For several days we have had in use in our office examples of the Mackinnon Fountain Pen, and find it to be a very serviceable and effective instrument. This is a handsome looking pen, with a hollow handle, in which a supply of ink is carried, and the fluid flows from the point in the act of writing. The necessity of an inkstand is thus avoided. One of the difficulties here

    De Atramentis - Jeans Blue

    This is a really fun greenish blue ink. It reminds me of what concentrated ocean water from someplace tropical might look like. It is like a mini Caribbean vacation in a bottle
  9. This is a page from the most recently filled pocket journal. I'll go through the pro's and con's with it after the pictures. And too acknowledge that another member from a year or so ago gave me the idea of making the Aquiline Font an 'everyday hand' and that I practiced it in the journal, I would like like to post a link to that thread https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/215433-aquiline-two-font-identification/ This is the pocket journal wrapped closed with the tie. Despite that being a theme over the last two journals, I actually prefer them to not have any.

    De Atramentis - Vanilla

    This is my review for De Atramentis Vanilla. Before I start to talk about the ink I would like to apologize for the kitten paw prints on the review itself. On the other hand, my current batch of foster kitties highly recommend this ink This ink is just a wee bit dry with an extra fine nib, but I didn't notice that until I finished my written review.

  13. A great ink in a loud pen, I've written a review on this pen-ink combo. Here are the scans and a few pictures of the pen and ink bottle. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1lvqj_OqInM/UZaWtFbQ-JI/AAAAAAAABzQ/R1bra4AF0rU/s1600/comeback+post+50,000_0004.jpg http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-F7Y_NqHasH0/UZaYBsi3odI/AAAAAAAAB1c/Khj33xGBgyA/s1600/IMG.jpg http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-2avBWXbinM0/UZaWuydIkRI/AAAAAAAABzg/0mp8BZnWisE/s1600/comeback+post+50,000_0006.jpg http://4.bp.blogspot.com/--58pqBTWUlw/UZaW9k00fwI/AAAAAAAABz8/4CKL80R_JVM/s1600/DSC07867.JPG http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-rjOKSijOR5Q/UZaXCzB_gqI/AA
  14. This is a long-term review of the Pelikano Junior. What that means is that it reflects my accumulated experiences and impressions after having used it for about one year. My initial impressions of the pen were very positive. While it comes in very ordinary packaging, just a plain cardboard box with blue and gold Pelikan logos scattered about, it comes across looking simple and fun. Besides the pen, there is a strip of sticky paper for writing my name on and displaying on the pen. Also included is a colorfully made cartridge of blue ink covered with cartoon characters. It's definitely geared fo
