Noticed a strange looking pen in my *bay feed this afternoon - 171164399891. Seems to have Jules Verne furniture, but is advertised with a "resin" body. This is the first time I've noticed an attempt at a WE - have there been others?

I believe seeing a Kafka that had been faked as well. I know the Vernes has been a popular faked W.E. There are tell tale signs to see which are real, and which are faked though.

In order to appreciate the sweet, you must truly taste the bitter....

By the way, I did report the item. Hopefully someone isn't taken with the fake

That's definitely a fake. The pen is poorly made (the signature on the pen looks like a sticker) and it has an "iridium point" nib, which are big signs that the pen is fake.

Also, the serial number comes up many times when you Google it. I don't think the seller knows he or she is selling a fake, so I will contact him and tell him the bad news.

That Jules Verne type pen is definitely a fake. It's black with an Iridium Point nib and it's not a piston filler. It's an obvious and common fake.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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
