Hello! I just wanted to thank you for this review, which was really helpful to me. I've been given one of these beautiful pens for my birthday and am just waiting for the delivery of the particular ink that I want to use in it, so I haven't been able to try it yet. I'm getting impatient :)

UK-based pen fan. I love beautiful ink bottles, sealing wax, scented inks, and sending mail art. Also, thanks to a wonderful custom-ground nib by forum member Bardiir, I'm currently attempting calligraphy after years of not being able to do so due to having an odd pen-grip :D

Thanks for the vid! My 580AL is inbound and I am excited!

 

Cheers ~ Jack

To this and others, my apologies for the big hiatus. As noted I am young and I believe in the video I just started college and been going at it since then so anyway:

 

At the time I bought the pen directly from TWSBI because originally I wanted to buy it from the Goulet Pen Company however they were out of the Fine. I'll do a post-usage report some time later (Finals for me), but I love how springy the nib is (I doubt it's the Rose Gold plating). You could get decent line variation but nowhere near a Noodler's or Fountain Pen Revolution Flex. The supply should still be there as of this writing for both the Goulet's and TWSBI.

 

Also suggestion, use one of the J. Herbin Anniversary inks, I love seeing the sparkles swirl around in the barrel (and the ease of taking it apart alleviates any potential clogging problems). For me with a blue ink inside (54th Massachusetts at the moment), I call it the Atlantis Pen or Kida (after Kida of Disney's "Atlantis: The Lost Empire").

Thanks for that info - I'm now the proud owner of a bottle of Bleu Océan and of Rouge Hematite, but I've been hesitant to deploy them in my TWSBI 540/480 pens. Sounds like I should give it a go!

      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

      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.
