  1. Hello everyone. In follow-up to the topic of protecting ebonite and celluloid (cellulose nitrate) started in this thread: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/332509-experiments-to-re-blacken-hard-rubber/page-2?do=findComment&comment=4301019 I've been going down the rabbit hole of researching HALS and other chemicals that offer protection against UV light-induced oxidation. Something that would act as a moisture barrier would be nice as well. HALS and related chemicals can ostensibly be purchased, but the myriad variations and solubilities have me baffled. I found a resource on conservation of paintings https://www.conservation-wiki.com/wiki/VII._Additives but it doesn't really answer my question: what would be safe to use on a vulcanite and/or celluloid pen that would protect it from UV light and water, and can I apply it safely to these surfaces? Any help would be appreciated. And please be gentle - biochemistry was my major in college but that was decades ago. Nick

    Green For Spring! Please.

    Hello. It's been a while. I've been in the market for the 'perfect" green for years. Such a difficult color, so many variations. I'll never have "perfect", but want close. I have the Mont Blanc 'Irish Green" & "J.Herbin Lierre Sauvage in the darker shades. Others much lighter or "Off" green such as J.H. "Verte Olive" & some w/ blue or turquoise hues. I want something along the lines of the first two I mentioned, but a hint or two lighter ai'm looking at "Kwly green & their "Meadow Green". One other is the Noodler's Eel series Gruene. They have the non-el, but I swear it looks lighter than the regular Gruene. I just need more greens in my arsenal. Any aficionados or lover of greens: I need your advice please. I'm open to other maker's as well... Thanks & Best, LeRoy This post is not letting me make corrections above forgive me.. That was Kelly Green before Meadow Green. LWL
  3. Hi there, Once again I am on the hunt for a fairly specific type of pen. I'm taking a holiday and want to take a cartridge-using pen with me - but the ink I want to use is in Long SI cartridges, and none of my pens take them! Plus, I wanted a pen to use with my diary's pen loop anyway. So it must fit the following: Slim Takes Long Standard International Cartridges Preferably non-metal grip section Western fine / Japanese Medium nib available Accepts a convertor would be a bonus.I've considered: The Pilot MR - the European version takes SI, IIRC. Kaweco Sport - but I think this only takes the short ones?Any suggestions?
  4. I'm not starting an ink war, please don't ban me. I recently got a bottle of bulletproof black and have been using it in a brand new faber-castell ambition. Disappointingly, the ink writes like a grey instead of a black. Sometimes, it even writes like a light grey. Only sometimes it's black. The problem is not with ink flow because I squeezed more ink into the feed with my converter, still, without increasing darkness. Is someone else experiencing this problem? Please help.
  5. Greetings, I am a antique and vintage clothing dealer, and I have recently found an interesting mechanical pencil that I would like to learn more about. I have attached a few pictures of the pencil. I have already learned about the business that is stenciled on the side, and am more interested in the pen itself. Particularly in the small glass tube that I found inside.
  6. Since I'm going to university after this summer, I thought it would be a nice idea to buy myself a new fountain pen. I've always been extremely fond of my Sheaffer Sentinel which I got from my dad, but I'd just like to have a second pen in the price range from €0 to €60. I've been looking at Sheaffer of course and I like the Agio. But the Diplomat Traveller also drew my attention as a nice looking pen. I don't like thick pens, or complete plastic (read: Lamy) ones. But what's more important to me is the weight (light), feedback (real smooth) and writing (fine). When I was younger I owned a Waterman Kultur which I think was rather scratchy and an even scratchier Schneider. Any advise would be appreciated!
