  1. So I was flushing my e95s out today before changing inks, and the nib fell off into the water. Didn't damage the nib at all, but a thin layer of what looks like epoxy was on the underside of the nib. Most of that flaked off while I was drying the nib contemplating what to do. Thinking as to repairs I've done, resetting an inlaid nib is beyond what I have tools or knowledge to do. I was thinking shellac, but that's fragile and I can't imagine it standing to writing. Has anyone had experience with the Pilot support center in Florida? I'd gladly spend some money to get it fixed- this pen has kind of been my right arm during the pandemic.
  2. Hi everyone! I've been lurking around FPN for a while now, and this is my first post! I wanted to share something interesting about the Quink Permanent Blue. I couldn't find any green Quink anywhere, so I tried calling Parker to see if they stocked it, or could point me to a retailer that did. They didn't and told me all they had was black and permanent blue. I had always wondered why permanent blue had "permanent" in its name when it is not waterproof at all, and fades fairly easily. So I asked them, and got an interesting answer. Apparently the "permanent" Quinks have metal incorporated into them that essentially gets embedded into the paper. When the ink fades, or is rendered illegible due to water or whatnot, you can get what was originally written recovered professionally. Did anybody know about this?!?! I've used Quink as my everyday writing ink for ages, and had no idea. I was mindblower. Is this a feature found in any other inks?? Very interesting, or at least IMHO.
  3. Hi Everyone My name is Michael Marchesan. I am an engineering student who regularly uses fountain pens. I love doing almost all of my writing on engineering paper but found that it does not take to fountain pen inks very well. After doing some research, I did not find any Engineering Pads that were suited for fountain pen inks. But instead of stopping there, I decided to write to Rhodia proposing a new idea in product development and they took to my request well and created a post on their blog "Rhodia Drive" and the idea is a hit with viewers!! If they can get enough support from the public they will consider actually putting this idea into manufacturing and distribution! So PLEASE!! Spread the word here on FPN, YouTube, and to anyone that you know that would like this idea! PLEASE comment on the link provided from Rhodia Drive so they can see the product being supported by us! http://rhodiadrive.com/2014/10/13/who-would-like-to-see-fountain-pen-friendly-rhodia-engineering-paper/ Also, special thanks to Brian Goulet of Goulet Pens who mentioned my inquiry in his latest Q&A which tripled the # of comments on the Rhodia Drive Blog. He mentions the idea at 21:29 in the link provided below! We need as much support as we can if this idea is to be developed so please do anything you can and this idea will come to life!!
