Operation Exterminate Bsb Stains

Recommended Posts

As several of you have followed the tests performed by LGSoltek and myself about getting stains out of pens, I thought I'd give it a try with a TWSBI stained with my beloved Bay State Blue. I'll try and add the links in the coming days to show off the results of other inks and pens, and I'll repeat this experiment with some other pens that have been stained by BSB, but for now, here is the story.

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

So, after an attempt to clean the pen, when EvoL returned the pen, I could not get the pump to move. As you can see this is a pentastrophy and a prime example of why you should not share pens with people who don't understand pens.

He broke the cap first, which is how the ink dried out.

Somehow, he broke the feed. Now, don't blame the ink because I've never had this happen with any of my other pens or my TWSBIs. Blame the ex husband (that's what I usually do). :P

The lovely folks at TWSBI worked on it for me. I could have paid for a new barrel, and I offered to let them keep it as a warning to others, but instead, they fixed it up and returned it to me with a new feed and a new cap. Everything else is original.

Now, the barrel is really stained. The last ink in it was BSB, but Akkerman Shocking blue had already left it's blue trail.

Oh my.

 

What did this poor pen do to incur such wrath?

 

I'm going to use that sample of Doyou that you sent me on the Lamy that's just as stained.

The pen was the victim of a newbie. I had it inked with BSB and it was great.

EvoL ex husband borrowed it and fell in love. He used all my ink. So, I cleaned it out and had it inked with Shocking blue. He didn't like Shocking Blue because it wasn't as "shocking" as BSB, so he cleaned it and then inked it with my thankfully small bottle of BSB. (He may have contaminated the ink and caused a chemical reaction.)

 

He returned it to me broken and dried out in January 2016 (7 months later). Nevertheless, we will have a great time thanking the nice Folks at TWSBI and a great time enjoying our experiments.

So this is Operation Exterminate BSB? Excellent. Calling all wizards, mages, druids, ink-wise men/women, united confederation of ink-stain terminators, etc... what sort of hocus pocus do you have to efficiently remove stains?

You will see!

I'm gonna be frank and say that I really enjoy the blue barrel color! It looks pretty and I would get a pen that comes like that.

Can you divorce him a second time without having to marry him again?

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now.

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
