Which Conway Stewart Are You Using Today?



Recommended Posts

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.

And another pen to use it?

Well there should be one under the Christmas tree (if only I can get out and get a tree! More snow coming down now).

cs montague with a fine nib filled with MB Mystery Black. My first cs and I am loving the smooth nib!

 

I am now debating whether to get another CS; possibly a Belliver

I think you'll like the Belliver. Has a nice size and weight as the barrel is lined with brass. I have one and am getting another soon.

Congratulations on that Montague, m0rr1s. I've always thought it looked very stylish and sophisticated. :thumbup:

Hope you managed to get out for the tree...and maybe we now know what might be under it. :D

Still haven't been able to get our tree. The tree seller in not even that far away, down the road to the roundabout in Lisbon, where for the past 3 years we have purchased a live b&b tree which goes into the yard in January. With the snow and work schedules, we just haven't had time yet. Hoping to get there today to see if they have what I want, and perhaps go back on Sunday.

 

The pen however, is already put away for Christmas!

Good luck with the tree, Rick...we're fast running out of time. Still, as long as the pen is there...

Today they were a hard rubber 330 Scribe and a late 475 with Made in England stamped around the barrel. Both black. The Scribe has a scratchy nib but is still a reasonable writer.

 

Wonderful time Christmas, so many cards to write and so many pens to put to use!

I'm a big fan of the 475! :thumbup:

My "Medical Sciences" LE from Kevin Chang.

 

Essentially a Belliver with a chased ebonite body. The nib I have on it at the moment is an exceptionally springy IM that was crisped up by Pendelton Brown. It's inked with Sheaffer's Skrip Black.

Well, we were finally able to get our tree late yesterday afternoon. The only Canaan Fir (live with root ball) left on her lot, it was a monster of a tree. The two gents struggled to get it in the back of our van, and my wife and daughter and I struggled even more to get it out of the van, onto a sled (still snow here), dragged across the front yard and up and in through the front door. Now comes the decorating, and hopefully I will find a nice CS under it come Christmas morn.

 

Happy holidays to all my CS mates, and especially to Mary and her family, as well as to Bryant and his.

My little green CS 15 has entered my pen rotation again today and I'm very happy. In between times, I forget just what a fab little pen it is to use. It positively romps across the page. I sit in meetings, surrounded by people all using their notebooks (electronic) and laptops, as we are a "paperless" organisation. And there's me, a confirmed anachronism, taking copious notes with my 50 year old CS, and all the happier for doing so.

And when their electronics crash or "upgrade" out of usefulness, we'll still be enjoying our lovely CS.

 

Exactly! I try not to look too smug when they can't get a wi-fi connection to access meeting papers :rolleyes:

Inked my Winston medium italic up with OMAS purple on Sunday and used it properly today

 

Very comfortable to use for such a big pen. I am very pleased with it.

Thank you warblerick for the advice. I bought a Belliever in Meteor. The nib seems better than my CS Montague! It looks like I will be saving for another one...

      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
