  1. I got lost in the reviews . . . I need a new journal and I would like to be pointed in the right direction. What I use: A5UNlinedsmooth-finish paper (like Rhodia)ivory or creamNO show-through, NO bleedthrough. I use flexible nibs and need a paper that can handle itlies flatcover is not as important but would like a nice cover . . . Where should I look, please advise! It takes me about a year to get through 180 pages both sides, so I can afford better quality. I use Rhodia pads to jot ephemera down, my journals are keepers.

    Victory Af (Iv) Repair Question?

    I won a Victory AF (mark IV?) on ebay recently, I knew the pen had a slightly damaged barrel which doesn't bother me (although I may look at ways to repair that at some point), the seller didn't know much about pen but thought everything was complete. The pen arrived this morning as is exactly as described only it's missing the pressure bar, I know this is an easy fix but have no idea what size would fit the pen, can anyone advise me please? http://i62.tinypic.com/25hzcrb.jpg Picture showing the damage to the barrel, I think as some point it may have been a cigarette burn that someone has sanded smooth, it's a small indentation, I may look into a way of either filling it or just matching the colour to hide it a little. http://i61.tinypic.com/2vn4az9.jpg The nib has 20 8 on it, I don't know what size that is as I'm going to soak and clean the pen before trying it, I was surprised to find that the sac is still really supple and I'm tempted to keep it but I'll probably order a new one when I get a pressure bar. The pen looks black in the pictures but it's actually a really dark blue EDIT: I'm currently cleaning the pen and now realise that the damage isn't a sanded smooth burn but actually a filled hole(still possibly a cigarette burn from the size) it looks like it's been filled with wax or something of a similar texture. I've never heard of a repair using wax, if it is I may either use heat to removed it and either find a better way of repairing it or redo it in wax and get a better finish.
