  1. We have a thread for watches and pens, nibs, desks, pets, but not any what is dedicated to ink bottles. So here it is! Share your photos, feel free to comment on others'! http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5519/9303702252_9714a6944d_z.jpg http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2857/9303696568_eb0656817e_z.jpg http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3826/9303700788_9d2cd50d95_z.jpg Here is an old one: http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5045/5304571608_6e97468fd9_z.jpg
  2. Does anyone else notice that the quality and nature of penmanship changes depending on the nib, pen, ink, and paper?? Here's a sample of my sloppy handwriting. Practice in progress. Rhodia Paper.
  3. 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:

    Pilot Falcon Feed

    At the moment I am writing an article on the function of flex nibs. Trying to explain why fps still write after the front of the flex nib has lifted off the feed I realised that I am making too many assumptions (I have some ideas ). I am using a Pilot Falcon as an example because I have some overall photos and I like its nib. In order to understand the function of a flex nib combined with a Pilot Falcon I would need some photos of the feed only... or if someone has a spare one (just the feed)... it does not need to function, only the front end needs to be undamaged... to have it in my ha

    Hello From Denver! Lot's Of Pictures!

    Hello everyone! I'm Mike. I live in Denver, Colorado! About a year and a half ago I moved back to Denver (and the U.S. for that matter) from Australia. I am an engineer and was working in the field. Now that I have an office role I've dropped the field pencil and picked up the fountain pen...and I'm LOVING it! As engineers do, I've been researching to no end, learning as much as I can. I'm really glad I found FPN as it has been an incredible resource (unlike many forums out there...)! I also happen do be big into photography as a hobby! The Visconti Michelangelo rollerba

    Ink Reviews - Accurate Colour

    Hey guys... new to the forum, joined a few months back but, just now posting stuff. Was looking at reviews for inks and noticed the colours seems a bit off. I did read the sticky here about why colour differs, which I fully understand because I went to school for art, then graphic design, then part time for photography, also worked in IT for 10yrs so, I have a decent idea of how colour works and how monitors aren't always calibrated properly. Anyways.. not a complaint post. I love all the reviews. Very helpful. A trick I use for photos that works with scanning as well, is to use an 18%
  7. I would love for this to be made a pinned topic so all who enter can quickly find tips on photographing their pens.
  8. Starting this purely because I'm still gloating over basking in the afterglow of receiving my new D600: http://www.pbase.com/image/152455444.jpg That's a Tokina 12-24mm DX lens on it, backed by a Kenko 1.4x converter, which has the effect of turning it into a 17-34 mm FX lens. Just as well because having bought that chunk of fun I'm skint, so my DX lenses will have to do for a while. There's a bit of vignetting under f=15 mm nominal, but even at 12 mm nominal it can be cropped out to leave a 19 Mp image rather than the camera's 10.3 Mp native DX crop. The pic, BTW, was taken with my de

  10. Here are some short writing samples from pens ground into some form of italic nib. Unfortunately, one of my pens, ground by Greg Minuskin, is still in Italy for repair. I have to say, the colours aren't as vibrant as they are in real life. I hope you like it! http://i1279.photobucket.com/albums/y529/lovementos/001_zpsf0d7144d.jpg
