Which Conway Stewart Are You Using Today?



Recommended Posts

Got a new toy today, CS Winston in Classic Claret, IM nib. I need to work on my photography skills, I guess, but you get the idea... ;-)

Congrats, on your new Winston..... IM nib....nice!....

 

maybe try putting pen near a daylight source when taking photo.....think will brighten up the pen so that we can really get a good idea of the color....just a thought....

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

I took some better images outside today. I still had a problem with lint... geez, taking pictures of my new pen was harder than I thought it would be ;-)

Much better, Baric!....now, I can see the nice color of your pen.......

 

As for the lint, you need one of those little cleaning cloths...like the kind for cleaning eyeglasses or computer displays....soft and lint-free....

then you'll be all set.....

 

Meanwhile, enjoy that beautiful pen.....

Lava Red? Is that a vintage pen color? looks sort of like Meteor. Very nice though...

Nope a modern one from 2005

Claret certainly suits the Winston, very nice choice of colour. If only they could make the Winston smaller to suit my hand!

Worth the effort though, Baric. That Winston is a beauty. :thumbup:

I've used up the Sepia, so now the 100 Series is inked with Diamine Ancient Copper. :thumbup:

I love Diamine Ancient Copper, what a gorgeous color.

 

Well, I ignored the whisper of common sense (and the groans from my checking account) and got another Conway Stewart to write with and enjoy. It's a Belliver Nebula with an 18ct IF nib. Smooth, just a hint of softness, I love that the converter screws in instead of using a pressure fit. And the finish is out of this world ;-). It has a sense of depth when you turn it it slowly and the light reflects off of the red and blue flakes inside the barrel. While substantially lighter and smaller (both length and barrel/section diameter) than the Winston, it's still a very solid pen in the hand. It's the same length capped (longer uncapped) as my Pelikan M600 but with a wider section, which is nice, and with more heft. I need to put it through its paces this weekend, which I am looking forward to.

 

This is not my image, but it is the exact same pen:

Bryant at Chatterley Luxuries/Pen Time was great to deal with. I may have to shop there again.

Beautiful in every way - the pen, the writing, the leaf, the photo. Thanks for posting!

Switched my CS 100 Coral Green's ink from Iro Asa-Gao to Conway Stewart Bodmin black. I had forgotten what a great smooth flowing ink this was. It almost feels like a "lubricating" ink. I feel like I should always have a pen inked up with it. Makes me want another color of CS ink.

      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.
    • Arkanabar
      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
