Greetings From Texas

After a few months lolly-gagging on the forums, I finally took the time (and initiative) to introduce myself.

I'm currently a postgraduate and a reborn FP-user (from my early teens, where I actually acquired a bit of $$ buying and selling pens on the Bay) who realized that if I'm going to spend the next 10 years studying and scribbling down notes, I might as well enjoy every minute of it!

I just wanted to say hello and show you a few pics of one of my favorite pens so far - a TWSBI Micarta

One of things I love most about this pen, is that its unique material allows for some 'customization' to be done to it.

A few months ago, I bought and sold another Micarta that had some 'gold' work done to the characters and numbers on the cap. (I thank the first owner of that Micarta for giving me the idea!)

On this Micarta, I wanted something a little more subtle, yet still eye-catching, so I colored in the etchings with J. Herbin's 1670 RH. Reason? to get that cool sheen of course!

In normal light, the writings just look dark/black as normal. But in a specific light, they will shine that bright green that we are all familiar with in the Rouge Hematite ink. And thankfully, on the pen, the non-waterproof ink is pretty resistant when I tested it with water on the pen (so at least it stays on there and not my hands lol).


I'm mostly glad that they are only green in certain light, though, because it would be a little obnoxious if they were constantly shining green IMO.
So here are some links to the pictures, some in the light, and some out of light.

Btw, I also applied Noodler's Dragon's Napalm to the entire pen, to give it a little darker/redder hue. So far, the ink has not gotten on my hands at all.


Let me know what you think!

Hi Jorge, nice to see your introduction. A belated :W2FPN:



I have no TWSBI pens, myself. I like the look of this one.


Be sure to post this in the Chinese subforum as well, as TWSBI is from ROC and the folks in the forum there might like to see your pictures, too.


Enjoy the forum

Welcome to the FPN. I don't have a TWSBI either, I too have heard that there are a lot of happy owners. Thanx for the pix.



If your out-go is more than your income,


Then your up-keep.


May be your Down-falll!!!
