  1. Papier Plume - Streetcar Green I ordered a bottle of this along with, a couple of other inks, based on Jackokun's excellent review: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/308298-ink-view-upcoming-ink-street-car-green-by-papier-plume-nola/ Unlike many an ink this hasn't had a large number of reviews so I thought I'd attempt one, with a few paper tests. Papier Plume are based in New Orlean's and don't have a European distributor, but thankfully they do offer international shipping, and their shipping rates are quite reasonable. They sell a range of 15 standard inks in 15ml, 30ml and 50ml bottles (the Moss Green is lovely), but also produce a series of New Orlean's specials in 30ml bottles topped with a wax seal. These are produced in relatively small batches, although there's no indication that they won't be re-issuing them. Streetcar Green is named after the colour of one of the local streetcars (or trams as we'd call them in the UK). Colour: Neither a blue-green or a yellow-green, this is definitely a grey-green, and too green to be mistaken for a green black. It's not a bright colour, but 'restrained' rather than dull. Flow: Very wet-flowing, but pretty well behaved. I had a little nib-creep. Saturation: Moderate. It doesn't looked washed out, but I wouldn't attempt to water this down. Lubrication: Moderate. The nib doesn't feel like it's skating across the page, but there is some lubrication. Shading: Paper dependent, but on good paper there's nice shading, that's readily apparent but not so heavy as to be distracting or overly busy. Sheen: None whatsoever - not a hint of gloss or colour sheen. Rorschach Test: No idea, what you're seeing in this, but it's a fairly accurate colour scan. Paper tests - all carried out using a Bock 1.1 stub in a Namisu Orion: Cheap Copier (scan doesn't fully bring out the green): Tomoe River: Cheap Cardstock (Ryman's own): Rhodia: Lined: Water Resistance: As well as being reasonably quick drying (10-15seconds depending on paper), there's a fair degree of water resistance. The green vanishes, but there's a very readable grey text left after 10 minutes soak. Verdict I like the colour - (the blot and Tomoe River scans, are probably the best representation on my monitor), and it's a nicely behaved ink.
  2. Here is my contribution to the thread, a few pictures I took last week. You will find more on my boutique 123stylo.com, opening 1st of October :-) Any comments are really welcome! I'm trying my best to capture the pens beauty, without photoshop editing. Cheers from Switzerland! http://i1078.photobucket.com/albums/w499/123chrono/IMG_2607%20-%20copie_zpspo41piza.png http://i1078.photobucket.com/albums/w499/123chrono/IMG_2540%20-%20copie_zps5vfu5spl.png http://i1078.photobucket.com/albums/w499/123chrono/IMG_2668%20-%20copie_zpsmuhx8uk3.png http://i1078.photobucket.com/albums/w499/123chrono/IMG_2248%20-%20copie_zpsue1uvznr.png http://i1078.photobucket.com/albums/w499/123chrono/IMG_2238%20-%20copie_zps5hpbsiwc.png http://i1078.photobucket.com/albums/w499/123chrono/IMG_2434%20-%20copie_zpsz1dvwcdt.png http://i1078.photobucket.com/albums/w499/123chrono/IMG_2436%20-%20copie_zpsmttaiqby.png
  3. I was recently looking through my stationary and stumbled across a fancy-looking pen. Since I have no clue what the pen is other than it's a ballpoint I was wondering if some kind person could identify it.. Here Are Some Details: It's mainly back with gold rings at the top and center, it has a gold tip and clip with a blue ocean-like background in the middle which then fades back into black. On the clip it reads L'Plume which I can only guess is the brand. But when I search that on the internet all I find is fountain pens by that brand and can't find any information or pictures of this pen... Thanks - Hope someone can help!
