    Ink colour-matching my Moonman M200 pens

    From the album: Chinese pens

    The Schmidt steel F nibs on Moonman M100 and M200 pens, as well as the rebranded version on Kaco Edge pens, are just so consistent in how they put down befittingly narrow lines of ink. The cap seal effectiveness of the Moonman M200 pens aren't half bad, either. I filled these pens five weeks ago, and it seems only roughly 10% of the ink in the converters have evaporated in the meantime.

    Water resistance of assorted inks

    From the album: Ink performance testing

    I didn't really set out to test the water resistance of these inks; I'd wanted to compare the paper in two different Rhodia dotPad No.16 notepads ordered a couple of years apart, and these inks just happen to be in pens that are on hand and ready to write. Graf von Faber-Castell claims its inks are indelible. Well, I guess the water resistance of the three I tested here aren't bad. Even though it'd be a struggle to read what was written in GvFC Cognac Brown after a long soak, I must say what's left of the marks on the page are distinct enough to make the text legible if one really

    Cult Pens birthday offers

    The main event is the site-wide discount(s): 10% off the total for orders of value £40 or more¹, and 15% off the total for orders of value £75 or more². The respective discount codes expire on 26 May. Then there are selected items specially discounted, including Faber-Castell Essentio Carbon fountain pens (all nib sizes) for £13.33 ex VAT each — before applying a site-wide discount code! They're probably worth buying at that price for the excellent steel nib alone, never mind whether you may be apprehensive about (numerous) anecdotal reports that their gripping sections cracking. B
  4. I'm curious about a few colors in the GvFC line, but have not decided if I want to "pull the trigger" yet, so to speak. Seems like they are well-respected inks, but I can't tell if it's more because of the general impression of a high-end product due to the heavy-duty glass designer bottle, or if the inks themselves stand out in some way. (I must admit, it bothers me that they label their inks as "indelible", but the water resistance part of that is not near-100% like a true permanent ink would have. Almost all of their inks wash off significantly, but do leave something behind. People th

Few years ago company's introduced six inks. Last year they've added three new colors to the line. This year they've done the same. Three new GvFC colors hit the shelfs. Burned Orange Carbon Black Cobalt Blue Deep Sea Green Electric Pink Garnet Red Hazelnut Brown Midnight Blue Moss Green Royal Blue Stone Grey Turquoise Violet Blue Electric Pink is quite cool.Not as cool as Rohrer & Klingner Solferino but it has som
  6. Hi, I'd like to present you another review that I've made for polish fountain pen forum - that's why the text is not written in english. I'd love to prepare new scans (in english this time) but I don't have time. Anyway, I hope at least some of you will find it useful even tough you won't - probably - understand the text as polish is not the most popular language to learn But then I believe the colors have language of their own. I'm huge fan of GvFC products. Cobalt Blue hasn't disappointed me even though blue is not my favourite color. It's good ink with good properties, a bit pricey, yes

Carbon Black Cobalt Blue Deep Sea Green Garnet Red Hazelnut Brown Midnight Blue Moss Green Royal Blue Stone Grey Another one of three new colors is the line is Midnight Blue. As I started to develop some taste in blue/blacks I was eager to try this one. I've tried it and I'm not satisfied. The ink, contrar
  8. I won't add much to previous fantastic reviews of this ink, such as the ones here: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/335816-gulf-blue-graf-von-faber-castell/ But I will add my subjective impressions of using this ink and some more scans and photographs. Graf von Faber-Castell makes a luxury line of inks in beautiful, heavy glass bottles that will decorate any writing desk and will draw the eye. Despite the high price, the bottles contain 75ml of ink, so price per ml is actually reasonable. Considering other brands that sell in 20-30ml bottles for lower prices, but you get 2
  9. I am always on the lookout for new fountain pens with italic/calligraphy nibs. I had recently bought two Graf von Faber-Castell pens and had their nibs ground to cursive italic by Mike Masuyama at the San Francisco Pen Show in August. I was enormously pleased with how these nibs performed. So, when I got an email from La Couronne du Comte in September announcing a new GvF-C Tamitio Calligraphy Fountain Pen set with 3 italic nibs, I didn’t hesitate to order. Actually, it turned out to be a pre-order. The pens had not yet been produced. Then there was a further delay due to production or qualit
  10. After a long & strong fight with the penavarice-devil , I finally gave in and bought a GvFC Intuition. I went with the 'terra' - the red-orang-ish barrel. I have also replicated the content with some additional pictures in my blog as the images are reduced to a small thumbnail after a short-while. Below is a link to the same: Graf von Faber-Castell Intuition Review Here goes a review of the same: The Intuition With a covetous eye on this pen, since the time I had got my FCD Ambition and then an orange coloured Ondoro fountain pen, it indeed required lady luck's blessings, to get t
  11. Disclaimer: I enjoy doing mini ink reviews for my personal reference, and I'd like to share them with others if they might be of help to gain an insight into the ink's appearance and performance. I generally don't have time to put together super comprehensive reviews, like some of our fantastic reviewers here do (thank you so much for your hard work!), but hopefully these mini reviews will still be useful as another point of reference. Graf von Faber-Castell - Deep Sea Green Recently I became interested in GvFC inks. They seemed overpriced before, and I was severely disappointed with
  12. Hi fellow Graf von Faber-Castell enthusiasts, We made an interview with the Count von Faber-Castell and perhaps you find it interesting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSMiGR6cFqQ P.s. don't forget to subscribe to the channel for more cool videos regarding writing instruments!
  13. I was recently looking at my profile and debating whether I should add a favorite ink. One of my favorites when using cartridges has always been Graf von Faber-Castell's Hazelnut Brown. Graf's inks no longer seem to be available at the U.S. stores I normally order from (Goulet, Pen Chalet). The manufacturer's site doesn't seem to have a direct-to-consumer sales option. The ink does still appear to be in production, and is available at JetPens, but it seems slightly ridiculous to order a European ink from Japan to go the Americas. Does anyone know the status of these inks in North Amer
  14. Brown is one of my favourite colors. I always have at least one fountain pen filled with brown ink. I’d like to compare two premium brown inks that I own. It’s a pity I don’t have new Organic Brown ink by Caran d’Ache because it would suit well this comparison of premium inks. Anyway take a look at HAZELNUT BROWN - Graf Von Faber-Castell http://imageshack.com/a/img854/1536/kdgi.jpg TSUKUSHI - Pilot Iroshizuku http://imageshack.com/a/img849/6075/ybvo.jpg The colors of both inks were inspired by colors of nature: Hazelnut Brown aims – quite well in my opinion – to reflect the

  16. I like unusual style, especially when it goes hand in hand with quality. Functionality is important as well. For me both design and function work together to produce a useful product. When it comes to stationery products I find it beneficial that the product is both pleasing to the sensibility while fulfilling my need for the product. This is a hard task for designers and engineers who sometimes come at odds with these contrasting principles, which in the end is dictated by cost effectiveness. It could be that the most cost effective product compromises on aesthetics, or a beautiful product do

    My second CRV ever. Thank you, amberleadavis! I'm glad I got to see so many inks. I had never seen any of them on paper in person. These are not all the pages, I'm trying to come up with things to doodle in the other pages. Seitz-Kreuznach Palm Green and Pelikan 4001 Dark Green. Seitz-Kreuznach Palm Green + Rohrer & Klingner Verdigris
  20. This ink is a really neat brown. It flows consistently well, has no problems with cleanup, and is decent on lubrication. It's a really good all-rounder ink if you don't mind it not being permanent. Or, for that matter, water resistant at all. On a ten-point system, 10 being the best: Flow: 8 Lubrication: 6 Dry Time on Tomoe River Paper : 20-25 sec Shading: 7 (Depends largely on the pen) Bleed: None. Ghosting: Just a bit, nothing too heavy. Color: 7 - I like it a lot, especially in my Monteverde Invincia with a Pendleton BLS Nib. Its a very nice brown with good shading in this pen. Overall:
  21. ​I just received a very beautiful Graf von Faber-Castell Classic in the mail today and I noticed that there was a spring in the converter (picture attached to show detail). Any idea how it might have gotten there and what I might do to remove it? Or would it just be easier to contact GvFC's warranty service and ask for a replacement converter? ​Thank you!

  24. I am happy to share a review of the Graf von Faber Castell Elemento Fountain pen, which is incidentally my first limited edition fountain pen. I have also replicated the content with some additional pictures in my blog, since the images are/will be reduced to a smaller thumbnail after a short-while by the image hosting service. Below is a link to the same: Review of Graf von Faber-Castell Elemento ELEMENTO L.E To be honest, the Elemento seems so alluring, ever since I have got an Intuition.
