Pendleton Brown Gives My L2K The "voodoo Treatment!"



Recommended Posts

Photos from sending my L2K to Pendleton. When I sent him his questionnaire about what I wanted done, I wrote, "I'm right-handed, use light to medium pressure, and to just do 'the voodoo that you do!"


I told him his name reminded me of the "Bookman" episode on Seinfeld. "Dude, you're like the guy Kramer talked about; "you're the ice cream guy named Cone!" Great guy and the work speaks for itself, no?


Great guy, excellent communication, and I would send him a pen again in a heartbeat and without reservation!


Thanks again, Mr. Cone! :D

Yes indeed! I do love my voodoo-ed Lamy 2k as well...never leaves my rotation

Glad to see you did a before and after (or did Pendleton do that?). The results are dramatic, and you can't ask for a better guy to deal with than PB.

If there's anything I want as much as a BLS oblique, it's Mr. Brown's handwriting and flourishes.

10 years on PFN! I feel old, but not as old as my pens.

Very nice, wondering about nib size as well. With as broad as Lamy 2000s run I would guess a fine though.

Someday!

 

And since postal services cost so much this days I'll have to send him a 2000 in every width possible: a fine, medium and broad should do it.

 

Someday...

I absolutely adore Pendleton's work. He is an absolute pleasure to work with.

That looks darn good! What size nib did you start with?

"I have nixed all Noodler's inks in large part because of their feel, but also their behavior, etc. When I put Iroshizuku or Sailor ink into my pens, it's like the ink, pen, and paper are having a 3-some with smooth 'n sultry 70's jazz playing in the background." ~ Betweenthelines

That's great to hear. I had asked Pendleton Brown to smooth the nib on my then-scratchy Lamy 2000 in late 2013. He told me at that time he was no longer working on them. Glad to hear he's changed his mind.

      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.
