My Menlo Pump Filler in blue and gold striated acrylic. 1.1 stub nib. We were relocating to WV, so I had it done in the those colors. I used it to sign the sales paperwork for our place in NJ...a treasured pen for sure! :D

Menlo at the moment. Darn near perfect. Sometimes I don't even use the pump. I fill it up after a good cleaning with a syringe. It's my avatar to the left. Might be the best enginered pen I've seen in a long time. Love it.

I have put a steel F-nib in my Collier. The gold M-nib was too broad for me and the inkflow was not good. It's a pity. But the steel F-nib is great! Inkflow starts instantly when the nib touches the paper.

Pearl based on its size and shape.I have a translucent Menlo Draw Filler and, as cool as it is to watch the ink fill and slosh around, it’s quite tedious to clean especially where it’s been stained (since it’s translucent).

I'm glad some folks have updated this thread. I have a number of Edison pens all of which I like, but my favorite style is the Beaumont pneumatic. It just fits my hand perfectly. Unfortunately, some of my favorite inks don't play nice with the latex sac, so they get to have an extended vacation with Brian Gray for repair. So now I use Montblanc and Visconti inks in them, and we'll see how that goes.

Pearlette in the "Fingerpaints" finish, with a steel nib in M.


I bought the pen on impulse when it came out as a "Production Model", and I find myself reaching for it way more often than I expected. It is both small and light, but posted, it feels like a much bigger pen.


A close second is the new Brockton model, which is a nice combination of short with a medium-wide diameter that is super for pocket-carry but feels full size in the hand.


I find the Grays make a super pen at a fair price.

      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.
