For me lately it is Italix fine cursive italic nib with Tomoe river papers, when I use them together, I called it "Writing Orgasm". I hope this is not too inappropriate haha. :P :P :P :P

 

Do any of you have similar feelings?

Yep, love my Goulet 1.1 italic nib in a Noodler's Konrad on cheap copy paper. With Noodler's Black. Great writing and as inexpensive a setup as you are likely to find.

 

Enjoy,

Yours,

Smooth paper (clairefontaine or rhodia), a wet ink (at the moment it's Sailor Jentle Grenade) and my TWSBI Vac 700 with 1,5mm stub, this thing is soooo smooth I could write all day with it :wub:

What a strange world we live in, where people communicate by text more than ever before, yet the art of proper handwriting is seen as a thing from the past.

Wet Pelikan M200 +Apica + Pelikan 4001 Turquoise = Joy.

Rhodia + Clairefontaine are smooth, but they seem to hard bring out the worst in my nibs :(

My LAMY Safari 1.1, or TWSBI 580 with Noodler's Heart of Darkness on Clairefontaine Séyès French Ruled wirebound A4 notebook.

 

As good as it gets.

Waterman Carene with Noodler Nikita in a Fabriano book and I was in heaven, then I did Parker 45 + Parker Permanent Blue on Clairefontaine and I haven't purchased a pen since - haven't even looked or considered - it has been something else.

Parker 51 / DC Supershow Blue / Crane Kidd-finish paper. Only family gatherings, sex, and birth of a child are better.

I find my pens write so much better on Apica too, especially fine nibs. On Rhodia they hard start a bit, but hard start a lot on Clairefontaine.

Pretty much anything pen I own on Tomoe River. I'll use my Rhodia and Clairefonatine for letters and looseleaf, but my journals and work notebooks are all now Tomoe River.

Love Apica!

Franklin-Christoph, Italix, and Pilot pens are the best!
Iroshizuku, Diamine, and Waterman inks are my favorites!

Apica, Rhodia, and Clairefontaine make great paper!

Rhodia and Tomoe River paper are my favorites! Then to top it off I like using my Left hand Oblique nibs on them! and as of late I am liking my Sailor inks to round out the bases!

I've been using my Doric and Waterman 94 almost exclusively lately. I'm pretty much a Rhodia only guy as far as paper goes anymore, occasionally Clairefontaine but I find it's not quite as smooth as their Rhodia branded paper for whatever reason. I also really enjoy the dot grid :)

 

As far as ink goes, I've been through too many to name lately but 9/10 are Diamine, and I recently re-discovered that regular ol' Quink Black isn't half bad either. I especially like it in the Jet Black Doric, snazzy.....

Pen: a p51 cursive italic

Paper: dollar tree composition books and writing paper. Dollar tree is softer and smoother to write on than rhodia or clairefontaine. It's very much like Tomoe river in that regard. However dollar tree paper holds line variation, the ink shades and appears more vivid compared to Tomoe. I've always loved the soft feel of Tomoe river but have been disappointed in its tendency to widen the lines, compared to rhodia/clairefontaine, reducing my italic line variation. Dollar tree to me is the best of both worlds. It does not hurt that it's dirt cheap too. Penny a page anyone? :)

 

Edit to add: excuse me I meant half a penny a page :))

Wow, that's some endorsement!! Guess that I am going to drive over on my lunch break and see what this is all about.

Yes a dollar is not a lot to lose if you don't like it. Be sure to look for the made in India label. One caveat: while pens with controlled flow, like my p51 and Japanese pens like platinum and Nakaya do fine with this paper, super wet pens, like my broad mb149 or my super wet parker 45 will show some bleed thru. So it's good to keep this in mind.

Sounds great. I have a 51 and an old Waterman which are both quite restrained. Thanks again for the rec!

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
