  1. Not unlike how things are in New Zealand, postage costs in Australia are almost prohibitive for exchanges and giveaways even when just sending stuff domestically, especially when they involve pens, which Australia Post has explicitly stated are not to be sent by letter post, which is far cheaper, but must be sent in parcels (Parcel Post minimum cost A$7.95) that are not subject to being stomped on by automated mail processing machinery. A better way may be to pass around a box of surplus and not-my-cup-of-tea-but-may-be-someone-else's items of up to 3kg, using a flat-rate prepaid mailing bag
  2. Milligram has been offering its stock of black-covered Bloc Rhodia No.18 80g/m² lined (A4-sized, 7mm-ruled, with blue horizontal lines and a red vertical margin line) notepads on clearance for a week now, for A$5 each [/and/] with a “buy 3 for the price of 2” offer. The effective price is therefore A$10 for three, or $3.33 each when you buy in multiples of three on a single order, and that's if the purchaser is not eligible for any other discounts (such as the "Friends For Life" discount of 10% site-wide) that apply. I imagine it may be obstacle to some (or even most) prospective customers t

    Mabie Todd & Co 'swan' Ink

    I recently went down to an antique shop and I happened to find some 'Swan' Ink bottles, made by Mabie Todd & Co in Sydney Australia. One bottle was labeled "PERMANENT BLUE BLACK" while the other was "VIVID RED". They appear to have what is most likely dried ink in them, though there is a chance that the permanent blue-black one contains iron oxide sediment at the bottom considering it is most likely an iron gall ink. Is it possible that I could receive some information on them (there doesn't appear to be much about it online), as well as whether it is safe to reconstitute the ink inside of

  8. Hi everyone. I live in Castle Hill (Northwest of Sydney, Australi), originally from China. My first fountain pen is a red Lamy Safari EF, purchased in high school, loved it so much, I even enjoyed taking notes and doing assignments, just so I get to use my Lamys. Stopped using fountain pens (or any pens really) when I was in university doing my IT degree, almost everything was done online/on a computer, totally forgot how a fountain pen feels. It's about 2 years ago, youtube randomly suggested a video in the "up next" and automatically played, its the one that features the Spencerian customi

    The Australian Fountain Pen Community

    The Australian Fountain Pen Community is a small one and pen makers, ink makers and retailers are part of that community. They play their role in the community by providing products and services that enable and enrich the passion we all follow. When I first became interested in making ink back in 2013, there were no Australian made fountain pen inks available and the range of imported inks was limited and expensive. Now we have Robert Oster with his amazing array of colours, Bookbinders, Van Diemens and Blackstone. And now, there is a steadily increasing number of enthusiastic pen makers, ma

    New Blackstone Scented Inks

    Coming May 2017 The fountain pen experience is much more than simply putting a pen to paper. The right pen, the right paper, the right ink and the right environment can all combine to create an incredibly enjoyable and uplifting experience. Sometimes the unpleasant smell of some fountain pen inks can detract from this experience so we've created a range of scented inks to add a new dimension to the fountain pen experience. We've chosen a selection of uniquely Australian scents and tested them thoroughly to ensure the scents do not interfere with the free flowing and well behaved charact
  16. Hi! I'm new here and it's my first time posting a subject so I hope it's all done well... Anyhow, I live in France and love most things Australian including Robert Oster Signature Inks. Two of the inks I love are Kada Kada Dark and Light which are exclusively sold in Australia by Pensive Pens. After crunching my numbers, I realized that it was financially ok if I ordered straight from Pensive Pens 8 inks by RO including the Kada Kada duo. Initially, my plan was to order: - Kada Kada L - Kada Kada D - Fire and Ice - Deep Sea - Green Diamond - Astorquiza Rot - Grun Schwartz - NG's ora

    Scents Of Australia

    Scents of Australia Blackstone Inks have released a set of inks called Scents of Australia. FPN member Jamerelbe has already done a set of reviews on them, as has member Lgsoltek, so I thought I would do a comparative review, between the six inks, and a couple of others for comparison. The six inks are Australian Bush (khaki green), Blue Gum (dark teal blue), Blue Cypress (greeny blue), Red Kunzea (red), Wild Orange (orange) and Brown Boronia (brown). The scents are floral, but apart from the Wild Orange (which has a citrus-y smell) I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the other scents. The

    Orange Zest - Robert Oster

    Robert Oster is new player in fountain pen ink market. He operates through ebay shop. The inks are sold in 50 ml PET bottles with a tightly secure twist cap. I don't know who makes the inks for the shop, but the colors look interesting and fresh. At the moment Robert Oster inks are available in billion colors - I lost track how many. Sample of Orange Zest was given to me by Nikaa. I remember the ink performed very well in her Sailor 1911 nib and I expected the same in my pens. The ink delivered.

  25. I recently acquired a Visconti Australis Opera Master LE for multiple reasons. I like Visconti.... and it was half the price of most other Opera Master size pens. I like the rose gold, and it has a gold nib, versus the current palladium nibs. I do not know much about it. It was mint, NOS, in original box with all paperwork. It was limited to the Australian market. It is made of Black Lucite and rose gold. It has the Double Power Filler, and a 18k gold nib. It even came with a letter opener. Does anyone have more info about this pen? Why was it called the Australis? When was it relea
