Hmm. I suppose some of you may not have a blacklight.... :D So here's a photo using mine... Written by the EF nib of my new Karas Kustoms Fountain K Mini:

That's indeed random, LOL. Maybe we can try guessing what that ink is.

 

 

I'm going to guess Magic Dragon since I had it loaded and that nib/writing appears correct.

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

Fiddler crab has an amazing blue sheen. *On papers that sheen.

Nope. Just shine a blacklight at your monitor.... ;)

 

Is it even possible? You are joking aren't you?

 

​If I happened to see something different from what has been shown on the screen then it'd be real ghost not Blue Ghost, similar to the ability to tell the color of the gem stones in black & white movies.

Well, it's possible to shine a blacklight on your screen... :lticaptd: But yes, I was joking.

If if the blacklight revealed something not there under normal light, I would first assume you accidentally splashed some UV-reactive ink on your screen, and if that wasn't the case, I think I might run. :yikes:

I choose this one

Monteverde Napa Burgundy.

 

I got two samples over the weekend. This and Diamine Merlot. Haven't tried the Merlot yet. Comparing to some of my other reds - the paper is Tomoe River. In this photo I used my Platinum 3776 Century Bourgogne with B nib on the Pomegranate and Napa Burgundy. The Classic Red is a Parker 45 with a fat nib. (collar says M, I think it is wider)

 

I am writing a pen pal in England with the Napa Burgundy to try and get a feel for it.

Here it is with Uluru Red too! Although in the first word or so it is extra wet- so it puddled.

Another great week!

I don't use a spreadsheet either and I also kind of know which ink is kept where in my drawer of shame so I used my son as a random ink generator. I presented him with my upturned swatches and asked him to "pick a card"

 

He chose Diamine Ancient Copper.

 

I loaded it into my red Ahab, oh boy, :( it hates it. Poor starts after only a second or so of pausing for thought. The ink feels draggy in it. The lines aren't crisp. Yuk :sick:

This MUST be an Ahab thing. Ancient copper is a gorgeous ink that behaved impeccably in my Vac 700 for nearly a whole year. So instead of photographing the scrappy page written with the Ahab I'll leave you all with the fond memories I have of it.

 

Just as soon as the last of my Mont Blanc Leonardo Red Chalk is used up in it I plan to reload Ancient copper in it again . . . :)

Finally, someone who did not have an all positive experience with the random ink. Although in your case it's the pen that is the problem, it would seem. Well, maybe that might be the case for me too, with the JFK, because now that I think about it, I did like it when I diptested it... OTOH the Dollar that I have it in usually has better than average flow... all of them do, so far. (I'm getting the ones I lent to my students back and am writing them dry, and they're all very good writers).

Hope it goes better in the other pen...

Blue sheen?! Ooooh I need to see it!

 

You can almost see it in this scan. I'll see if I can get a picture later.

      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
