  1. InkShift – Pelikan Edelstein Jade to Onyx Pelikan Edelstein Jade is one of the few inks that I really hate – I simply cannot stomach its colour. So time to get creative and try to salvage my bottle. The Platinum Classic Black series gave me the idea to darken up the ink by adding some black. So I set out to try different ratios of two Edelstein inks: Jade and Onyx, shifting from one to the other. Below is a set of progressive mixes I used while looking for an interesting combination. Works great, and this is a technique I will surely use more often in the future. I liked th

    Ink Mix : Murky Waters

    Ink Mix – Murky Waters 3 parts : Pelikan Edelstein Jade 2 parts : Pelikan Edelstein Onyx I have a bottle of Pelikan Edelstein Jade, that turned out to be of a colour that's not really my thing (to put it mildly - I simply cannot stomach it). From the Platinum Classic Black series, I got the idea of darkening up the ink... maybe that could be a way to salvage my bottle. I tried a number of different proportions of Edelstein Jade and Onyx (documented here on the forum), to come up with a combination that I liked - Murky Waters. "Murky Waters" is brewed by mixing 3 parts of Ede

    Parker Superchrome Jade Green

    In keeping with my theme of doing things because I was told I can't... Parker Superchrome Jade Green! Yes, the slightly LESS deadly ink invented to replace Parker "51" ink! If you are not familiar with Parker "51" ink and the story behind it, please feel free to see my reviewsTunis Blue: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/354212-parker-51-tunis-blue/?hl=%2Btunis+%2BbluePan American Green: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/353661-parker-51-pan-american-green/?hl=%2Btunis+%2Bblue So, now that everyone knows why "51" ink had to go the way of the dinosaurs, let's take a l
  4. Hello Everyone, This is my first post on the FPN forums. I've been referencing them a lot; and I am happy to finally be posting something. I recently acquired a Parker Duofold in an online auction. I purchased a pen lot because one of the pens looked an awful lot like a Duofold. I am a novice when it comes to pen collecting, but I knew enough to take a chance for 22$. First I will give you the imprints - although they are shown in the attached pictures (I am sorry for the poor lighting) The Nib is imprinted with the following lines, across the its width: Parker Duofold Pen Canada A
  5. Good evening everyone once again. This is a light hearted review of a serious pen! Preamble (skip this bit if you find it boring): Today, I have been fortunate to manage to have the same day off work as my partner (our schedules NEVER match up). Couple of days before the bank holiday madness kicks in, so the great outdoors beckoned… So, with the great UK weather being unpredictable, a trip to the coast was off the menu, and I was in need of a pen case for a couple of pens I have, so predictably, a pen shop expedition was order of the day. As per usual, we headed out some 30+ miles to

    Five Pine-Y Sailor Greens

    Sailor makes such fantastic inks, especially greens. Spurred by the generosity of our very awesome Claudia, I've put together a five-way comparison of pine green Sailor inks. You know, for those of you who need a reason to buy more. Er, right. Thanks, C.!

  7. Wahl-Eversharp is an American pen manufacturer that started making their Pyralin (celluloid) pens in 1927. One year later they added the Personal Point, which was one the first interchangeable nib systems. For more information about the history of the Wahl-Eversharp company, see the links at the bottom of the review. This pen has excited me ever since I first laid my eyes upon it, sitting in an antique store next to a battered and bruised Esterbrook SJ that had seen better days. Twenty dollars later, I walked out with a dirty, unusable, and old Wahl-Eversharp. After some careful restoration,
  8. Hi Guys i have just today purchased this jade duofold jr. This will now be my third duofold jr however i have not seen these pens with comb feeds except where the nib has been replaced with a newer vacumatic era nib. That being said i do remember remember reading that parker started to phase out the christmas tree feed in 1928 which would be the right time period for this pen. I would love to here your thoughts on this. Can't wait to get this one cleaned up and ready to write! Thanks

    Mr Oster's Amazing Inks

    I first noticed Robert Oster's ink on ebay and wasn't too sure about it. Then I saw someone here had taken the plunge before me and the ink seemed good, so I took the plunge and contacted him. Customer service was truly excellent; he always responded very promptly and politely and was very helpful. I got seven inks in one package by ordering directly from him. I can't give a full picture review here as all my photographs are too big, so I have a picture of a comparison sheet below, after my thoughts. Moss Green: Very nice green with a slight grey aspect. Quite dark and a genuine 'moss' colour.
  10. Noodler's Nib Creaper, Jade: A day in the life. . . For me, writing on the move is a must. My journals need a hard cover, my pens have to put up with a lot of jostling, motion, and the occasional hard stop when I put my bag down too roughly, and given the hit and miss reputation Noodler's pens seem to have around here I thought the perfect way for me to review a Noodler's pen, as a fountain pen novice, was to take it out and about, and see how it behaves compared to my other three pens. So I filled it last night with Black Parker Quink (because you can't get more basic than that), wrote a te

    Sailor Maruzen - Jade

    Ok.. I just received some birthday presents from Japan.. Thanks to my lovely Nin(k)ja Traffiker.. This is Sailor Maruzen JADE!!!! :wub: It has a more gentle sheen (tone down) reddish-copper all over... You can't see it in the scanner.. Easy to see in person. Is not like some other inks that hits you over the head with it... example below... This is done with a scanner on Canson Tracing Paper (kind of like vellum).. Like Maruzen Akane, this ink NEEDS to be appreciated in person... pictures/scans.. will never do it justice. C.

    My First Flat-Top

    HI all, long time no post... Just felt the need to share. The local consignment place had an old jade flat-top sitting in their "marked down" cabinet yesterday, and so of course I took a look. It's clearly been used, but not mistreated -- brassing, some staining, color fading: I has them. But it also has a two-tone 14K lifetime nib, which was a pleasant surprise, and a sac the size of a small dirigible, though I know not to trust it and replace it before inking. No cracking or bulging, and a few mysterious rust-colored deposits adhering to the outer barrel and cap that wipe away with some ge

    Family Heirloom Info Requested

    My wife's father passed just about 25 years ago. In a box of 'stuff' that one of his daughters kept, this pen turned up. (see below for images) I took it apart, replaced the sac, and put it into working order. It is priceless to my wife; being able to hold the same pen that her father used working a milk truck delivery route in Pittsburgh, Pa in the pre-WW-II time frame is very special to her. I seek a little more information. From research I have done, I have determined that it is a jade Lifetime Flat Top White Dot. According to an article on Pen Trace that I found, the clip puts it som
