  1. Ink Review: Birmingham Pen Company Twilight Background: Birmingham Pen Company (BPC) started as the brainchild of two brothers – Nick and Josh. Initially, Nick and Josh worked with third party ink producers in England and Germany to produce their inks. BPC started making their own inks over a year ago. While some changes have been made, their new formulations include “Crisp” inks designed for everyday use on all papers, “Swift” inks that are a bit wetter, starts up quickly and works well on premium papers, “Rich” inks which have high sheen and saturati

    Wancher Red-Violet (Ebine)

    Here is another sort-of pink ink that was generously donated by amberleadavis, famed Inky! En-Abe-Lawyer. Wancher is a Japanese concern dealing in pens and inks since 1987. This particular ink comes in a rectangular plastic bottle and is my first experience with the brand. With a heavier swab application, Evine can appear more burgundy. In the Kaweco lookalike Wing's 3007 it's more a soft, dusty pink. In contrast with De Atramentis Goat, Ebine seems a bit more dry going onto the paper, but not to the point of an unpleasant writing experience. Not at all water-resistant ... dries quick

    Diamine Oxblood

    Another quickie ink review, on one type of paper only, while I'm testing my (Extra) Fine-nibbed pens and trying to figure out what I want to do with my full ink reviews... Flow: Well/'wet' enough, such that writing produced with the Platinum DP-1000AN with EF nib does not appear dry, and the differences in colour intensity from the various EF nibs I used are not as pronounced as with other inks. Feathering: Effectively none on the Rhodia paper I used, even though the nib on the Sailor 11-0073-120 desk pen is so rough it tore through the coating on the surface of the paper, and got so

    Nib Tuning/adjustment

    I recently acquired a 146 Bordeaux and that has a scratchy nib. I took a look at the nib with a 10x loupe and it appears the tines are not properly aligned. Does anyone know if Montblanc will tune the nib if I send it in for servicing? Or will they consider the nib damaged and require me to do a nib exchange? Note: I'll be sending it in for servicing anyways since it's scratched all over the pen, just worried they'll write-off the nib and make me get a new one. In which case, it would be better to send it off to get adjusted and ground down to a fine first.
  5. Hi all, can anyone help me to identify the following pen. A slim, burgundy pen with silver cap, having an ink window and piston filler... (I taped the filler because it was slightly leaking because of some small cracks) For further details please check the pictures. I'm rather new to fountain pens and have no clue about the brand, country of origin, age... there's no sign of any brand on the pen itself. I'm suspecting there might be some clue on the nib itself, but since I'm rather new to fountain pens I don't really know if/how I can remove the nib. Unscrewing the nib/feed section was n

    Waterproof Burgundy?

    Hi All, Since Noodler's Waterproof Burgundy is no longer around, is there any waterproof (or incredibly water-resistant) burgundy ink on the market?? I've got waterproof inks in every major color except burgundy and it's driving me crazy! I'm also dreading the thought of having to mix my own with De Atramentis Document inks. Thanks!

    Is This Legit? Can Find It Anywhere

    Hello everyone, thanks for the help. I recently won an Ebay auction for a burgundy Montblanc No. 12 and wanted to know if this model even comes in burgundy.
  8. Early last year when my interest in the Japanese store-exclusive inks by Sailor began, and the inks were generally available, a generous FPN member sent me a sample of this ink. I think I'd seen a review or two and thought it looked very good. I didn't get a chance to try it out until recently, as reds are not my favorite. But this one is a nice deep burgundy color and quite pleasant. Pen and Message used to take reservations for the custom inks, but have abandoned that as it was taking too much of their time. Now, it'll just show up on the website (maybe) someday when it's back in stock. Th

    Heat-Set Aurora Optima Feed?

    Has anyone tried heat setting the Aurora optima feed? Technically it should be possible because the feed is made of ebonite. Are there any caveats, warnings that you guys have run into while trying to heat set the feed? I have heat set several other pens like my piston filled OMAS milord and Indian pens like the Airmail 71J and 69EB with good results, so I know the process. I just want to make sure I'm not doing something that could harm the pen's finish, material etc. as this is my first Aurora. Thanks in advance!

    8 “Pinkish” Inks

    I've been wanting to try some kind of pinkish ink for a while. I didn’t want a pastel or cotton-candy pink, but other than that I was pretty open, so after going through the FPN boards and using the Goulet swatch tool, the eight finalists ranged from burgundy to magenta to purplish and reddish pinks: Diamine Syrah, Pilot Iroshizuku Yama-Budo, Rohrer & Klingner Magenta, Rohrer & Klingner Solferino, J. Herbin Rose Cyclamen, Pilot Iroshizuku Tsutsuji, J. Herbin Rouge Bourgogne, and Rohrer & Klingner Fernambuk. Although I liked some of the colors, I didn’t see myself using pink enoug
  11. This is a review (full review here) of the old Monteverde Burgundy. The new bottles are not available in my country (still looking for someone visiting America who I can ship it to economically) so I cannot compare the old with the new. I bought this bottle early last year (when our currency didn't bottom-out yet against the USD) to use for annotation—I'm a law student. For this purpose it is quite good with excellent dry times paired with a Plumix and it contrasts well with black printed text. It is quite a muted colour though, so its usefulness in annotation work relies more on colour cont

    Noodler's Beaver

    Long ago, back in 2013, I traveled to visit friends and didn't want to take ink on the plane. So I bought a bottle at a local shop. I'd only had one ink at that time, a black, so I wanted something different. The shop didn't have a large selection but there were maybe a dozen Noodler's inks to choose from. So I ended up with Noodler's Beaver. This isn't an ink that you hear much about on the forum. I don't really know why. A lot of times when I look at my writing with this ink it almost looks like a muted burgundy than a brown. It almost reminds me of KWZ Brown Pink, but it doesn't have the ki
  13. This is my second favourite ink from Pen & Message shop after, obviously, Cigar. I have been wanting to use this for a while now, but kept using other inks that i have. Writing Sample: http://i.imgur.com/MfwZVGE.jpg Close-up: There is some sheen, but if you use a hosepipe BB nib, you should be able to get more sheen out of it. Due to my handwriting being relatively small, i cannot use such nibs. http://i.imgur.com/05Ihxnm.jpg They recently changed the label of on the boxes, so here is an obligatory picture of both the boxes. http://i.imgur.com/9Pz2h4D.jpg This is my favour
  14. I found this one for a suspiciously good price... it looks like a Burgundy Cruise Collection but the trim is gold, none of the Cruise Collection have gold trim. And yet... here's what looks like a genuine (but vintage) Montblanc burgundy with gold trim that has a similar shape: http://www.ebay.com/itm/EUC-BOX-Montblanc-Classic-Burgundy-Bordeaux-Gold-Ballpoint-Pen-VINTAGE-RARE-/172121724109 So -- what are your thoughts. Is the 'mystery' pen real or fake?

    Noodler's Mix De Lune

    Hi there. This is my first post and effort, so please excuse any mistakes or errors. It is on the cheapest notebook paper. Like many, I've been seduced by J. Herbin's Poussiere de Lune, but was disappointed with its lack of waterproofness. Having a selection of Noodler's bulletproof, waterproof and semi-waterproof inks on hand as well as a painter's eye, I thought, why not? Here is my first effort at trying to replicate JHPDL with 4 Noodler's inks, a sample vial and blunt tipped syringe. the recipe (ALL Noodler's): North African Violet - 30 drops (or 1/2 ml) Black Swan In Australian Roses
  16. On the 30th of October, I received an email from Brian Gray saying my pen was dispatched. I was waiting desperately for it since then. However things took a wrong turn when I saw that my pen went to Brazil instead of meeting me here in India. I waited for a couple of days and called Brian and requested him to take a look at it. He immediately contacted USPS and found that they filed their paper work to Brazil instead and asked me to wait for a couple of days more. He asked me not to worry about it and if required he said he will make another pen for me from the same material or will offer me t

    Papier Plume - Burgundy Ink Review

    First review. This is of Papier Plume's hand-bottled ink, Burgundy, which can be found at papierplume.com or in their shop in New Orleans. It's a nice ink that performs well in italic or flex nibs. My review was color-corrected to represent an accurate scan of the ink. Feathering of the ink is actually zero to very minimal, but my image resolution makes it look a little higher, unfortunately.

    Identify Sheaffer Pen

    I'm pretty new to this fountain pen business, but managed to get hold of a sheaffer nib/front section (i.e, nib, filler, grip) and thought I'd try and figure out what model it is. it's burgundy, with gold trim just above the nib, and above the grip. the grip is burgundy plastic. the nib is gold, and in a 'classic' style (i.e., not the sheaffer distinctive targa/imperial kind). engraved on the nib it has 'SHEAFFER', then 'F - 4' below, and finally 'M' at the bottom. any suggestions or insights would be appreciated. many thanks
  23. Hi everyone ! Have you ever held the perfect pen, I mean the pen that is perfect for you, that suits all your needs. The first time you wrote with it, had something different that you cannot really explain perfectly. Well that is the case of the Montblanc Classic. It is pretty similar to the 221 and the Genreration, fitted with a medium 14 k semi-flexible nib. Here is my review, the more objective way possible. The look : Very classic, vintage look to it. Does not look like the modern Montblanc's and it is a good thing ! very original for a montblanc but if you step away from theses bra
  24. Hello dear FPN community! I am still on my way in assembling my "perfect" writing instrument.. And recently i received the replacement for my burgundy parker51 hood. But i found its color being different from barrel. Please explain me, what can be the reason of that and also if i will order barrel in future, how do i specify the color so it will match the new hood. Some clarification: the barrel doesnt have any imprint, the hole is at the back. On photo you can see the old barrel with a new hood and color difference is well shown there (spent 1 hour making photos).
