Noodler's Blue Upon The Plains Of Abraham - Bupa

Recommended Posts

I have yet to receive my Noodler's BUPA ink but I thought I'd relate a story.

 

As a Canadian, in Elementary School I learned about the historic battle that took place on the Plains of Abraham back in 1759 between The Brits and the French. I recalled the description of how the British troops scaled the treacherous cliffs leading from the St. Lawrence River up to the plains, under cover of dark to surprise the French.

 

I even recall pictures drawn showing steel jawed British troops climbing the near vertical "to fall is certain death" ramparts.

 

Then I visited Quebec City.

 

A four year old could stroll up to the plains and hardly break a sweat. I suspect the most difficult thing the Brits had to do was stay quiet.

 

:lol:

Haven't been to Quebec City, but I do remember going to seen the remains of Expo '67 in Montreal (after it got renamed "Man and his World"). And that my parents breathed a huge sigh of relief that they could find a motel near the exposition site, so my dad didn't have to brave the traffic in downtown Montreal a second time.... :o

Oh, if anyone wants some, let me know. Wonder pens has it in stock for $16.50 Canadian (mine came in the plastic bottle.) I can order a couple and ship out.

It's also easy to order directly from Wonder Pens. They ship to the US without problems.

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

Anyone else find that this ink feathers excessively? I needed this ink like I needed another $20 sitting on a credit card, but I got suckered in to the Canadian Exclusive branding position.

Nope, my bottle doesn't have any problems feathering. It actually works quite well with cheaper paper, though I mostly have put it in finer nibs.

Maybe thats my issue. Out of 40-50 pens I probably have a single fine nib from my early days of collecting before I was aware of nib size.

 

Ill have to dig my collection out of storage and find a fine to try. Due to space these days i just keep a handful of my favorites out and theyre all medium.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
