Which Conway Stewart Are You Using Today?



Recommended Posts

I'm using a Woodgrain Churchill, and I have it inked with FPN Starry Night.

What a beautiful pen - and it looks great against that Clairefontaine cover. Is that an Age Bag?

I've just inked up a CS 15 that arrived today. My first CS. Exciting.

First CS? That IS exciting!

What colour,? How's it writing? Which ink?

 

Oh, and yes, it is an Age Bag.

Hello Gerd, Good to hear that you are still using the 388...but I bet it's not as often as those beautiful P75's! :D

It's a marbled green. Medium nib. Seems to write very smoothly. Inked with Diamine Jet Black.

 

Here's a pic of the pen.

Thank you Malcolm :-) I'm very happy with it so far. And it's even older than me - that's a miracle!! Lol

So far I have only used my (recently acquired) CS Windsor today. I was writing earlier and suddenly, no ink flow. Luckily, I had just run out, and refilled with its standard color, Diamine Royal Blue. I have lately taken to filling it with my Visconti travelling inkwell, and it makes the whole process so less messy!

Montague with ESSRI and CS100 with Diamine Racing Green. All the vintage ones are sleeping - resting until the day when they are needed.

My new Conway Stewart is having its first outing to work today. A day full of case coferences and meetings - that'll test its mettle!

Hi Marie...how did the 15 perform today?

 

That would be the later vintage 15. :D

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
