Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Oh I hope mine's in the mail... The 8% color is lovely - I don't yet know what to call the 16%...

Quick question though: what sort of pen do you put the 16% in - is that in a converter? piston filler? and will it make a difference?

For the quick review/color swatches, I am using a vintage German piston filler, with a wonderful semi flex nib.. :puddle: . I don't worry about issues, cause I keep the ink moving. Clean/Flush between colors..

 

 

BUT... for real testing, meaning keeping the ink in your pen for days... I will recommend INEXPENSIVE and EASY to clean pens. Some testers are using Preppy's to be safe.

NONE of these are in the mail yet and won't be until the weekend. The envelopes just arrived within the last 30 minutes.

What color(s) will my fingers be? Blue Amber and Blue Cashmere gave me nice purple digits. Do the Reds and Greens stick to skin similarly? I hasten to add that any color fingers are a very small price to pay for these. Even without the next inks I'm waving my checkbook! SuSeMaI, take my money!

      @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

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it?

      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.
