As Noodlers just announced on Facebook, they hope to send out the new H.O.D bottles with Charlie pens by the end of May to the dealers. I am signed up on Gouletpens.com to receive notification when it comes in, just wondering who else is reallllly excited to try out this limited number pens (140 were made).

I signed up for an alert when Gouletpens gets them back in stock. I'll buy two!

I'm still trying to figure out how to list all my pens down here.

I'm really pumped to try this pen and ink. I've been wanting to try HOD for a while and have been holding off till I could get one with the Charlie.

Goulet has the HoD with free Charlie Pens in stock as of earlier today. Er, I mean 1414 (2:14 pm) yesterday. Insomnia sucks.

And some Charlie's will be in with the new FPN ink coming in June.

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

Yes. They will make announcements when it gets closer to time. We (or FPN) have done it many years.

Here is a link to Mr. Tardiffs video:

I hope this pen gets good feed back, because he states it may become a permanent pen in the bottles!

This video is so awesomely dramatic. I love Nathan.

And I've got a bottle in the mail too (hit the payment button yesterday afternoon). Looking forward to trying the pen out.

The ink? Well, I'm not much for black to begin with. I have two bottles of black (Conklin and Delta) that were swag from DCSS, one each year -- both unopened. And a nearly full bottle of Noodler's Old Manhattan. Not to mention a bunch of ink samples, a half-used bottle of Quink Black (modern), a couple of bottles (one large, one small) of vintage Quink Microfilm ink, and a mostly full bottle of Pelikan 4001 Brilliant Black.

Oh, and I forgot to add the Pen & Ink brand non-shellac India ink (although that's more greyish).

I'm quite excited for this new pen, especially the ebonite feed! I love being able to make a pen obnoxiously wet to accommodate my huge stub grinds!

I got a couple of bottles of Noodlers HoD and the Charlie pens in the mail last night. Been wanting to try this pen out for months now.

Ive been drawing all day with one of the pens. Perfect for what I do and love the ink volume.

Although I have discovered that HoD ink is not my favorite ink for cartooning. Getting very slight feathering. Probably stick to Noodlers black for cartoons. But the pen is a keeper. It will be in my travel bag of pens for sure as an everyday drawer.

Interesting. I wasn't getting any feathering in my ink journal entry (paper is a Piccadilly sketchbook from B&N and it does weird stuff to ink colors sometimes) -- but was getting a tiny bit of show/bleedthrough when the Charlie nib was heavily flexed.

What I'm NOT getting is black. I don't know whether it's because (a) the pen is new and I had to prime the feed a bit by sticking the nib under running water briefly; (2) the nib unit wasn't quite dried out from when I flushed it last night; (3) the pen just isn't drawing correctly (i.e., a QC issue); (4) the ink bottle needs to be agitated/shaken up a bit in order to get the dye components mixed back in; (5) this is just a matter of it being a different batch of HoD; or (6) this is just a case of the paper being weird with inks again.

I do like that the ink seems to be pretty water resistant. But I don't think it's going to be "the new black". It might not even be a substitute for Noodler's Old Manhattan (FPH exclusive) which is *also* an eternal ink.

On the plus side, I like the cap color on the pen itself, which is sort of a dark teal with swirls of purple/red in a similar intensity, so the swirling is very subtle.

Do you do something to the feeds?

Yep! It's a little thing I do to lots of pens with removable feeds. I take a very very sharp knife and run it along the feed channel. It is much easier with ebonite feeds, but it can still be accomplished with standard #6 plastic feeds. Also, I also take the liberty of cutting some extra grooves in and make the connection point with the back of the pen wider, so more ink will flow.

So they write super wet then? Or how does that change the flow?

The feed mod makes the pen pretty wet. Opening the tines a bit then creates a crazy wet pen, as the feed can now support it. The feed mod is also important if you have big, wide stubs like a 1.8mm that you want very wet. Normally, the feed would starve the flow.

      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.
    • Arkanabar
      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.
    • A Smug Dill
      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
