  1. I've been collecting Levenger True Writer (TW) pens, mostly FPs, since 1999, when they first were introduced. I've got 84 of them (some duplicates), comprising about 2/3 of what's been issued; the ones I didn't get either I didn't want or I missed their availability. I'd like to post photos of the collection. In this new Topic, I don't see the ability to post photos, as the "Post Options" on the right of this typing box (when typing) doesn't show the box for "Enable HTML," for some reason. I'm hoping that after this initial post, that box will appear so I can post photos. Even using the U
  2. I love the in-between-ness of the tertiaries; they're complex, blended, impure, not one thing, nor t'other. Those yellow-oranges, red-oranges, red-purples, blue-purples, blue-greens, and yellow-greens. So all you ink lovers out there who love the tertiary colors: let's hear / see your favorites in the in-between ranges. Here are the colors I have loaded in pens at the moment:
  3. So, let's say I want to make a word document where I want to type up the document in Pilot Iroshizuku's Kon-Peki... Is there a way to look up "soak up" the color (like you can do in MS Paint) from a website or anywhere for that matter, and then paste it into the specifications of your custom color in Microsoft Word (or whatever you're using)? Or if there isn't, can anyone think of some creative ways of solving this problem? It would be awesome to be able to type up some of my word documents using my favorite fountain pen colors. Thanks!

    List Of Sailor Pro Gear Colors

    While the 1911 is my go-to writer, the distinct shape of the Pro Gear has a special place in my heart. The goal of this thread is to encompass Pro Gears of every color ever released. This makes categorizing a little bit easier for us Sailor fans. The following models are included: Pro Gear King of Pen, Pro Gear, Pro Gear Realo, Pro Gear Slim, Pro Gear II, Pro Gear II Realo, Pro Gear II Slim, Pro Gear Mini, Pro Gear Slim Mini. I need your help! If you have colors to add or find errors (i.e. duplicates) in the list, please leave a post below. Solid Colors 12th Anniversary Blue & Gold A
  5. Lazarus like, I appear on the board to ask the question... ...Have we got a thread like the one I started for the Lamy Safari (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/22180-lamy-safari-colours/page-1) that similarly catalogues and brings together all of the known variants of the Kaweco Sport? I have previously owned and enjoyed a vintage (since lost on a trip to HMS Belfast) variant called the 'Ranger' which was a sort of 'Army Green' colour. I was inspired to ask the question having seen this on my Instagram feed: https://milligram.com/milligram-kaweco-collaboration-skyline-fine

    Twsbi 580Al New Color

    Have they announced anywhere when they're going to release a new TWSBI Diamond 580al and what color it's going to be this time? I'm about to buy a new pen and am wondering whether it's worth waiting for a while or spending the money on a different pen (in case I don't like the new al color).
  7. Hello! I'm buying an Edison Pearl later this year. I still have a lot of time until the purchase but I REALLY can't decide on the material. Do you mind uploading some pictures of yours? Don't need to be Pearls. I know the Edison Pen Company has many pics but I'm looking for less profissional pictures .

    Inks That Pair Real Good

    I'm a biology student, and all my notes involve a bunch of illustrations, diagrams, labels etc. This semester I've been using two LAMYs with some stock standard LAMY blue ink and a bottle of Herbin's Cafe Des Iles. on it's own LAMY blue is boring as hell, I can certainly see a lot of use for it but it's by no means an exiting color. Cafe Des Iles on the other hand is like writing with rich, silty, honest dirt from a healthy creekbed. But I digress. The two inks play off against each other in a way I simply haven't ever seen before. Neither demands attention from each other, Both keep from be
  9. Hey Everybody! if you're anything like me, you have a very specific way that you like to arrange your collection of inks on your desk or in a drawer etc. Time to show them off! Ill begin by posting mine and a list of the inks there. Please don't mind the tequila in the background.... Thanks -M. Inks: Lamy Blue Lamy Blue-Black (my first ink) Montblanc Leonardo (maybe my new favorite) Montblanc Toffee Brown (my everyday ink for my Montparnasse) Diamine Turquoise Noodler's X-Feather Noodler's Rome Burning (awful) Noodler's Forest Green Noodler's American Eel Black (my everyday

    Parker '51' Aerometric Color Poll

    Hi All- I got to thinking the other night (while trying to fall asleep) what was my least favorite '51' Aero color and thought it would be interesting to see what all of you thought... so, which is your least favorite?
  11. Considering the ever expanding colors and editions of the Lamy Safari/ Al-Star lineup, I was wondering what colors are the most sought after here on FPN. Do you own that particular favorite or are you looking for it? In my personal case, it's got to be the Coffee Al-Star and the NK-edition Charcoal with red clip. What's yours?

    Inky Blendings

    Do you blend a lot of your own ink colors, or are you happy with what is commercially available? If you blend, are your blends within brands or do you mix brands? And what are you aiming for in a blended ink, is it just to experiment or are you trying to fill what you see as a gap in commercial colors? Apologies if these have all been covered elsewhere, I did search...thanks.
  14. What motivates your pen buying/collecting? Do you look for trophy pens, those rare special vintage ones? Limited editions? Favorite colors, brands, or models? Do you hunt for specific pens? Prefer new over vintage or vice versa? How does price figure in? I know these are many questions, but I am trying to answer them for myself as a new pen enthusiast just starting out. I seem to be rather disorganized in my thinking, and want to pull back and try to figure out what I really like and want in a pen. All input appreciated!
  15. So, I've decided to get me one of these. I can't really make up my mind between Forbidden City, Olde Salem or Victory Garden, although I've put the other colours in my poll too. I'll give it a few hours then order away!

    Black Ink Changing Colors

    I have a Hero 616 pen and a bottle of their ink, not so sure what model since I just picked it up in China because of it's price, which is like a dollar for 15ml. I used it in my 616, which has a sac refilling system, and after the ink flows down into the bottom, the top turned orangish red from the remainder of the ink. Is that what black ink do or what?

    Inks That Match Your Subject?

    Hi, me again! Now, next year, I'll be taking five modules of History and a German module at University. My question is... what inks do these modules make you think of? Public History (How History is perceived by the public) - my first thought was brown. Probably an indication of how dull it sounds! Piracy and Privateering - might use my Waterman's Green for this. Thinking About the Past - purple, possibly? TBA TBA German - Red?
