  1. Hello, I'm looking to refill a Pilot V Board Master dry erase marker with blue or black ink. By construction this pen can be refilled as its end is easily unscrewed to a small plastic cartridge. The thing is I don't know which ink to use as it needs to be : 1/ compatible with the felt tipe 2/ compatible with the board to be dry erasable. Anyone has ever tried that with success ? or with bad luck ? Any tips or ideas ? All help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks and have a nice week-end.
  2. Hello all, I'll start this post - or thought excersize - with a question: - Do you feel that current fountain pen industry is slowly moving toward re-introduction of proper flexible nibs? It occurred to me, while watching fp reviews online, reading etc - that in each one of them there is at least one segment dedicated to "line variation" (ex. Stephen Brown, Matt ...etc) or "Flexibility". Also, a lot of excitement is raised around any pen/nib claimed to have "that vintage flex feel". As my comment on one Aurora 88 review by sbrebrown on YouTube states: "Maybe I am an idealist with unreal
  3. Oh the woes of fountain pen economics! It really is only the larger companies that have the real ability to produce a cheap fountain pen that is a profit maker rather than a loss leader.

It does seem to me though, that good old fashioned capitalist greed unde

    The Best Oblique Pen Holders?

    Hey guys! After seeing just how extreme nib sizes can be, I was curious if there was a "silver bullet" of oblique pen holders. In other words, is there any oblique pen holder out there that will fit most nibs? Thanks!
  6. I'm new to fountain pen, and I was surprised that there wasn't more retractables in the low end price range. The posts in that thread helped me understand that the R&D for it is prohibitive. But it also made me realize that I'm on unfamiliar ground, so I'm going to ask about the lay of the land. There seems to be quite a few pen makers, but what's the market share between them look like?
