Wonderful update Brian. Was just thinking that when I get my pen I'll probably go neck to these pics to try and locate it in the group shots based on the orange striping. Pretty nerdy but I'm sure I'm not the only person that will be doing that. :-)

In the end, I'm sure that I'll have a "complete lineup" shot. So you might be able to locate your pen that way.

Hahaha - I was thinking the exact same thing when I was looking through those pictures. You can count me in your nerd tally. :)

Yeah, I am falling in love with this Neon material from the shots. I love how the orange is on some of the threads on some of the pens. I'm sure when the ebonite pics happen I'll fall in love with it, too.

Made me think of this, one of the greatest things on the internet, which I cannot resist sharing:

That bonus chunk is just going to be the icing on the cake, fantastic !

Wow that is great about the bonus chunk.

The pens look fantastic so far. The lighter bits on the black acrylic seem sort of pearlescent ?

Can't wait to see the ebonite pens start! This whole process is so intriguing.

No, that's not blood. That's Noodler's Antietam.

Correct. The Neon is pearlized, so it will have a lot of depth. You can't really photograph this very well, but you'll understand when you hold then pen in your hand and rotate it.

 

Also Ebonite is schedule to be here Tuesday! Now of course, customs delays can happen, so hopefully Tuesday!

Keeping my fingers crossed that you don't have to go through the headache of customs delays or anything like that. :D

Usually ebonite goes through without problems. We'll see.

I can imagine there will be an awful lot of holding and rotating - gazing at the patterns.

 

Just hope there isn't a subliminal message "buy Edison pens" embedded in there behind the orange neon threads.

      @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
    • A Smug Dill
      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.
