  1. What are/is the wettest pen/nib you own, share some information about it and your experience using it !
  2. I understand how to make a nib write wetter - one way is to scrape out the ink channel in the feed just a bit (I had to do this to my 1st two Kaweco Sports). But how do you make a gusher write drier? Other than using a dry ink, I mean.

    Curb Your Omas Blue

    I don't know whether I received a bad bottle of Omas Blue last year. All I know is that I've owned two bottles of Omas Blue, and the second one was the worst gusher imaginable. It's misleading to call the two inks by the same name. Diluting it with Waterman Florida Blue fixed it. (WFB never looked better. But I digress.) I tried a 2:1 mix, Omas over WFB, but that was pushing it. The flow was still too heavy: too much partial bleed-through with too many pens on too many papers. At 1:1, every pen/nib I owned could handle it. If this seems strange, lucky you. It means you didn't buy this stuff, whatever it was. In any case, read on. (If the image colors on your monitor differ from my descriptions, heed my descriptions. Carry on.)

    Inky Learning Curve

    I test my inks in a notebook using a dip pen. But now I'm realizing that I need to also test them in pens before I jump in and buy some. I bought a fine black Preppy at the Chicago Pen Show and decided to fill it with Organics Studio's HMS Beagle. Bad decision. Right away the lines it was making were very wide and the pen was leaking ink practically onto the paper. Of course I have a whole bottle of it. Obviously the Preppy was the wrong pen for it. I turned around 180* and cleaned and filled the Preppy with Noodlers KTC. So far it's behaving itself quite well, but give it time. Now I have to figure out what pen I have can handle the HMS Beagle. Maybe something will come in the mail that will need a free flowing ink like that. I have some Chinese pens winging its way to me.
