The cap is blue and the pen body is green ? It is an interesting combination . :thumbup:

I love Fountain Pens, with hooded nib in the classic style, Parker 51/61 type .

Jinhao 992, inked with Diamine Macassar

You appear to be enjoying the 992 Eli, or are you just trying to find a matching ink? :lol:

With five pens presently inked, I have to assign a task to each one of them. They're decent writers, but build quality is disappointing: cracks, leaking converters, nibs sticking out, etc. I wish I bought a pair of Lorelei (well, I have one already) instead of a six-pack of 992's.

Ahhh, we live and learn.

I hadn't bought a 992 as I didn't really fancy them, although I had considered buying one as everyone else seemed to be jumping on them.

 

I defo won't be considering them now :D

Thanks Eli

Eli, I agree that the Lorelei is a far better quality pen. I do think the nib on the 992 is a decent nib, and using the nib in another pen.

This Hero 1202 - first of my recent acquisition splurge to arrive. I'm fairly sure I thought it was a piston filler - I think it was late at night when I ordered. Anyway, inked with the dreaded BayState Blue because... why not?

Its been put into use filling up my journal - pleasantly surprised at how nice it feels and writes. Happy days.

Writing with my newly aquired Jinhao Y3 with a brass/rosewood barrel.

Really an interesting pen, but it must be pretty new because I can't find any reviews of it online. Has a fine nib and writes really well. Currently inked with Diamine Blue Black.

This is the first time I've seen this pen too.

I really like it.

It comes in a few different guises I see.

Another one for the list.

 

Thanks Haun :D

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
