This isn't really a formal review, just a few minutes of video where I play around with this PHENOMENAL new ink.

 

If this stuff doesn't change your life (once you can get your hands on it; this stuff is as hard to come by as asparagus during christmastime), you need a therapist. It's AMAZING. It's like, "why use any other ink?"

Personally, I want your penmanship, but that sheen is pretty awesome.

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

Beautiful handwriting and lovely ink. I find watching people do calligraphy to be almost hypnotic, it's very meditative.

The praise of the praiseworthy is above all rewards.

You, as usual, are far, far too kind. It was staggering, but for that writing looks MUCH better in the video than in real life.

Were you able to get some of the ink?

 

 

My kids won't let me buy any more ink until the new year or I buy lots of presents for Christmas. They are SO MEAN. They even want to eat every day multiple times a day. Can you believe it?

My handwriting is nowhere near as good as yours, Pierre. But I have this ink in a Pelikan m100 with a 1.0 nib and I just LOVE it. Saw an exemplar at DCSS in August and knew I HAD to get my hands on some. One of the few times that I opted for a full bottle without trying a sample first, or at least seeing a swab (inks that aren't available as samples don't count here, I'm talking about when samples *are* available). And I think it's maybe the first time I chose the GPC option of "Notify me when this is in stock" -- I don't think I even did that when I broke my first bottle of Noodler's Kung Te Cheng (just kept checking their website every few days with complete impatience...). So when I got the notice I was right on it, and had the order in by 10:30 AM that morning. :thumbup:

      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.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
