    Iron Gall Fp Inks In Steel Nibbed Pen

    I recently ordered a bottle of Platinum Classic Lavender black IG ink, and I am worried about it corroding my nibs. All of my pens are steel nibbed, even my monteverde Regatta Sport limited edition(my most expensive pen). Is this something I need to worry about if I regularly clean out my pens?
  2. An interesting article from Scientific American New Scientist (edited - thanks to those who pointed out the error), 1959, outlining the history of the development of quick-drying fountain pen ink, and how the ink and paper interact to influence perceived feathering or line spread. It also is clear how ink recipes can affect pen components or reliability thereof. http://bit.ly/Science_of_Quick_Drying_Fountain_Pen_Inks

    Corroded Nib

    Hello everyone, I bought this cross Century II at the flea market and although it writes nicely when disassembling it for cleaning I noticed it had a lot of dried ink and the nib seems to have been corroded on several spots and some of the gold (paint/plating?) Had transfered to the feed. It came with an empty cross cartridge of bb. Is this just product of leaving dried ink on the nib for a long time or are there inks known to do this?

    Lamy Fine Nib Corrosion

    I have two Lamy fine tip nibs that have corrosion on the inside. (See attached photo) They are the nibs that came installed on a Safari and an AL-Star. The one with the most corrosion has a lot of nib creep. The excessive ink on the outside of the nib led me to investigate. I am using Noodler's Polar Blue Bulletproof ink in the pens. I assume it should not be corroding nibs. I have a Lamy extra fine nib on one of the pens now, using the same ink. There has been no corrosion on the extra fine nib. Has anyone seen this before? Should I blame the ink or the nib?
  5. My Lamy Scala has started to show signs of corrosion or something similar on the inside of the body. I discovered it when the barrel clung to the back of the converter. Has anyone experienced this problem? If so, how did you solve it and how? I'm attaching some pictures that show the inside of the pen as well as the converter.
  6. I am looking for some current information (& opinions) on the subject of Noodler's Ink having a corrosive effect on fountain pen feeds and other plastic parts: 1. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/162268-noodlers-ink-chemical-corrosion/ 2. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/147963-noodlers-ink-being-corrosive-is-it-just-a-rumor/ & 3. http://gregminuskin.com/?p=2426. However, these are all nearly decade old rants. Has anyone recently been plagued by the destruction of a pen by ink? Was this ever more than a random incident??
  7. Sorry the photo is a bit blurry, I had a hard time getting an up close picture. Hopefully the pockets and scratches show in the picture. It almost looks as though some ink has eaten away at the feed. Has anyone else seen this in their Vanishing Points? I do use Noodler's Dark Matter regularly in this pen, but I don't think I've heard of that ink being corrosive. Could it be the trap door just scratching he feed? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Montblanc Leather Pouch Question

    Hi, I'm getting a Montblanc Meisterstück Classique pen in either gold or platinum (can't decide!) and would be grateful for any advice regarding my concerns with Montblanc's leather pouches. I already have a Montblanc Meisterstück 1 pen leather pouch but having read through some threads on this site I'm concerned about the risk of scratching the pen (especially as the 'precious resin' appears to be vulnerable to surface marks) and possible long-term corrosion to the gold plated parts such as the clip caused by the chrome tanned leather. I checked Montblanc's website which does not disclose
  9. 52 days ago I made this topic about a problem with my Waterman Carène: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/305762-to-waterman-carene-owners I wrongly assumed it was ink, but pen2paper raised the issue of chemicals on a leather case. I had a leather case made a couple of years ago and have been keeping the pen into it since. Then Force also came to rescue – people said he would – and recommended polishing with a polish liquid. Ghost Plane gave the final touch by recommending I used a cotton ear, since I was worried about damaging other surfaces of the pen. I must confess that I w
  10. I'm in the very beginning of the restoration of my grandfather's Sheaffer Touchdown Tuckaway. My grandfather died 32 years ago, and wrote with the pen until the day he died. It's been sitting in my mom's desk drawer since then, fully loaded with a beautiful blue ink (which I shall identify someday). One thing I've noticed is that the inside of the cap has a very little bit of greenish corrosion inside of it. Does anyone have any recommendations of good ways of cleaning that up? In addition, there's a small dent in the cap that doesn't affect the utility of the cap. It's about halfway up the c

    Hi There From Singapore!

    Hi there! I'm from Singapore, really into fountain pens but alas aren't really rich enough to buy the more drool worthy pens; I've just splurged on a vanishing point decimo on rakuten, and hopefully it willactually turn up.... So we're moving house, because the house is getting renovated, and we had to clean out all our junk to store it away for a year. The whole of last month we'd been packing and stuff -though OUR stuff, had been cleared out. My mother's stuff, is... well, still all over the place. So last weekend I had been clearing out some last bits of stationery and found what i thoug

    Nib Corrosion

    Hi All, I need some guidance. I just received a brand new fountain pen, Parson's Italix, and noticed some discoloration on the back side of the nib. I looked at it under a microscope and took a picture. It distinctly looks like corrosion and pitting which was somewhat surprising given the normal high quality of these pens. Please take a look and confirm that this is indeed pitting. Will it get worse owing to acid in inks. It is a steel nib. Should I return it? Best, Les
