Hi and welcome to the FPN

 

There's a lot to learn here, so you have come to the right place to gather and share information about pens and inks and...

Welcome !

 

At first, we used berry juice and a sharpened stick. It was slow, messy, and bugs ate your homework.

Then, we used lamp soot and water, with the sharpened quill of a bird. Ink flow was very inconsistent.

We have come a long way, in controlling the leakage of ink onto paper. Enjoy it.

 

What do you use for everyday writing ?

Hello northern neighbor and welcome to FPN!

 

FPN is certainly the most congenial and multinational FP resource on the net.

 

Best,

Dear everyone,

 

Thanks for the greetings. Nice to meet you all. :)

 

In the past, I primarily used word processors on PC's to write.

 

I like to use the Cross fountain pens as "everyday" writers. I'll probably change this habit later on.

 

I live in the Vancouver area.

 

I've already made a couple of postings:

1. I'm confused about the AU 750 marking and AU 585 label on MB149.

2. I'm wondering what the pH is for the MB black ink.

https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/253125-ph-of-montblanc-mystery-black-ink/

 

Yes, I agree that there is a lot to learn about fountain pens from others. Unfortunately, none of my grade schools taught anything about fountain pens.

 

Have a great day,

On the MB nib, the number is percentage. " 750 " means " 75% pure ". " 585 " means " 58.5% pure ".

From high school, you must recall that " AU " is the Periodic Table symbol for gold. Since 24 karat

is 100% pure gold, 75% = 18k, and 58.5% = 14k.

 

Why can't the Germans ( :wub: ) speak English, like everyone else ?

Thanks Sasha,

 

Yes, I know the following already:

750/1000 = 18K.

585/1000 = 14K.

 

But, the sticker on the cardboard box shows: 585 and the nib shows 750. It's inconsistent. Have you ever heard of this problem before? Are the newer 2013 model MB149's supposed to have 585's or 750's?
