Sometimes in spite of researching the hell out of things on the web small details escape; in this case I hadn't realized the Sailor Pro Gear Standard was smaller than even my shortest M400... No complaints though, luckily it's still big enough for my large hands, the section is nice and thick and the nib is a dream... So in case this helps someone out there...

I assume you have them (L to R) Sailor, Pelikan, Parker, Waterman? Is that correct? With them all being black, it makes it a bit more difficult....

 

Nice pens anyway.

Yes, it's hard to tell the size when only the pen is pictured, with nothing next to it for scale. I learned this when my M250 arrived and I saw how relatively petite it is; like pseudo, I was fortunate that it fits my hand well unposted.

It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

Thanks, yup, that's the order, it's easier to make them out by their nibs.

      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.
