I managed to snag Red Rebellion and black. I have always wanted an ebonite pen and the material has not disappointed. The nibs however really required adjustments!

Definitely adjustments to be made, yes.

After playing with my Neponset for over a week, not much has changed, but I have some further observations. I'm still inked with Baystate Blue. This combination feathers and bleeds through both with Rhodia dotpad and Rhodia R series paper, to an extent that I have never seen with any other nib/ink combination. The nib is still very rough, although the flow is a little more even than it was at first.

 

I think it's time to clean the BSB out of this pen and to try a different ink. Anyone having good luck with any ink in particular?

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

Using Stipula's Calamo Borgogna in my Neponset. Performs well.

 

Regarding BSB - I have some in a Gama Kuyil with a Goulet medium steel nib and, while it flows wonderfully, it also feathers on Rhodia similarly to the way you described.

I got the John Muir, which is white with orange/red. It wrote well right out of the box. I guess I got lucky and the color of this pen is gorgeous.

Kind of late to the party here but it seems like the Red Rebellion has had what I would call an obvious color change and size change from this time back in 2014 vs. now. This is one of the colors that are still sold and readily available. The newer version seems to be a dark (real) red color vs. what I call a brownish red color and it’s slightly shorter in length plus the converter is a different design. The feed looks a little fatter on the newer version also. I recall at some point they changed the nib & feed insertion from directly into the body to a white holder for them which then screws into the section. Just saying!
