Oh, now that's funny.

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

Vis needs some CYAN-ide!

 

 

And that's punny.

Is there not a blue soft drink? It could well be called CYAN-ade...

I have a mix which I call CYANide. It's a 1:1 blend of Pelikan 4001 Turquoise and Diamnie majestic blue. You end up with a deep turquoise with a bit of sheen. Very nice.

Oh, why does this remind me of some ice cream I got a couple of years ago an ice cream stand across the river from me. The stuff was called "Blue Moon". It was artificial blue ice cream, cotton candy flavor, and it had multicolored mini marshmallows in it. And yes, it was as revoltingly sicky-sweet as it sounds.... :sick:

And then there's this old George Carlin routine:

"Why is there no blue food? I can't find blue food - I can't find the flavor of blue! I mean, green is lime; yellow is lemon; orange is orange; red is cherry; what's blue? There's no blue! Oh, they say, "Blueberries!" Uh-uh; blue on the vine, purple on the plate. There's no blue food! Where is the blue food? We want the blue food! Probably instores immortality! They're keeping it from us!"

"It's very nice, but frankly, when I signed that list for a P-51, what I had in mind was a fountain pen."

@dcwaites - that may be a good idea.

@lgsoltek - your moral compass isn't working.

@amberlea - funny and punny, as it should be in such cases :)

@mariom - actually, this color looks kinda nice. The ones I viscerally hate are cyano-turquoises (the likes of Diamine Soft Mint or Caran d'Ache caribbean Blue).

@inkstainedruth - while most blue stuff is inedible, blueberries, blackberries, blue milk mushroom are but then they all look more like bluerples than blues. Nice quote by the way.

      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.

      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
