#07 LEE is safe and sound in the pen cabinet, awaiting a couple pens to run out of ink before the first inking here, likely this week. It's a beaut, with outstanding grain variation in the briar swirl. Thank you very much, Brian.

I got my #39 LEA last Monday. It is a wonderful pen. I think I know where I might be doing some more collecting now. The 1.1 nib is great too. I have Liberty's Elysium in it right now and it lays down a wonderful line.

#48 LEE has been used every day since it arrived: looks great, writes great. Now I just need to figure out the proper use for ye olde bonus chunk.

My Briar Swirl # 10, filled with Levenger Cocoa Brown, has seen daily use for the past week. I bought mine with the 1.1 italic nib. The pen is beautiful to look at, and a pleasure to use. Thanks, Brian!

#7 Neon received. Drooled over. Not inked yet. Looking forward to it.

My LEE Briar Swirl #05 arrived last Monday. The grain is beautiful. Inked up with Waterman's Serenity Blue and writing with it daily. It works great and it smells good too. I'm looking forward to joining the 2014 FPN Group Buy. Maybe a LE Extended Mina?

I've been enjoying my #5 LEA Morgan all week. I inked it with Noodler's Cayenne, which plays off the Neon stripe perfectly! The EF nib is a delight.

 

Thanks, Brian, for making a wonderful pen.

#38 LEE here. Been using it with my LEA 2012 Pearl

 

That's my roster (but I also have the 2013 Badger & Blade Herald Grande).

 

Since I'm posting again, what brown ink are people having success with? I found Noodler's Burma Road Brown a bit dry and went to Noodler's Rome Burning. I found it to be way too light in color (and then remembered I made up a sample with just a couple drops of black in it to darken it). Has anybody tried perhaps Herbin Cacao du Bresil?

Galileo Manuscript Brown is one of my favorites.

      @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.
