Hello FPNers, It’s been a long time since I posted here, as I fell out of love with my many fountain pens for a while due to inky fingers. But I’ve recently returned to the fold and ordered a new pen, a Pelikan M600 in blue, fine point. I would have probably bought medium point, but fine was all the retailer had left in time for my upcoming birthday, so I went for it. I’ve been reading quite a bit since and discovered that Pelikan’s fine is wider than most, so perhaps it was serendipitous. In any case, to get the most out of my fine-point Pelikan, I’d like to know what brands of bottled ink are the wettest, so that my fine-point pen will write as juicy and broad as possible. Thanks in advance for your feedback. Gary
I do love my Japanese pens, design wise and nib size, but as they are known to be, mainly dry writers. My perfect pen would be an absolute gusher while being able to produce a fine line. Yes, I know that there are methods to increasing the flow mainly along the lines of tinkering with the nib (I've been both successful and unsuccessful) or having a pen Meister do it. There just seems to be a thought lingering in my mind about of it is possible to adjust the feed instead of the nib (or both). I've been searching and there hasn't been much at all about this. Is there anything that I can do with it which will make a difference or not? Thanks.
3nding posted a topic in Inky ThoughtsHi everyone, Does any of you know of a dark, well-behaved, black ink that is common and easy to find and slightly wetter than Pelikan. I don't want anything as wet as say Aurora Black or J. Herbin Perle Noire, although I love those blacks. I just need something that will make my pen work just a little better because I am in between being too wet on some papers and too dry on others. I already tried Noodler's Black so I'm looking for something different. Thank you all very much in advance, 3nding
Hello all, I'm a new poster to FPN, longtime reader. I'm looking for suggestions on how to make my Baystate Cape Cod Cranberry wetter. I know it doesn't play nice with other inks, and I just ruined a preppy by adding a drop of dish detergent to the Baystate ink already in the barrel (it's an ED). I've successfully added a drop of dish detergent to other bottles with desirable results. I've even done it to my bottle of BSB and it's working well - though in hindsight it was a huge risk, and it was likely liquid hand soap, not dish detergent, if that makes a difference. Anyways, does anyone know how to make Baystate Cape Cod Cranberry wetter without junking it up? Thanks in advance!
