Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Hoping there's someone who can advise!

 

A vicar is looking for a fountain pen with a fine nib, that will be completely safe to use with his carbon document ink.

 

Any ideas or suggestions would be really appreciated!

 

Thank you in advance.

Platinum Carbon Desk Pen (made for it), any of the 3776 series.

 

I have been using the Platinum carbon inks for a few years with just a good flush every third fill in many pens (Lamy, Faber Castell, Pelikan) with no problems.

 

Of course Japanese nibs are finer than normal European so the med would be closer to a fat fine from Europe.

Slightly expensive, and not everyone likes the design but... A bullet-proof (and not necessarily Noodler's!) ink requires a bullet-proof pen! I roll with a Fountain K with carbon ink for school as it survives just about everything!

 

Whichever pen you choose, make sure you clean it too! Carbon inks can be nasty.. D:

For an English preacher,....buy English.... do recommend ESSR....Ecclesiastical Stationery Supplies Registrars Ink . 110 ml and very affordable. It is liked more than Diamine Registry's ink. It is a class Blue Black ink.

 

It's the old Stephen's Blue Black ink....saved when the conglomerate that bought up Stephen's ink gutted it, and sold the Factory land....as planned from the start.

One of the management got the wooden cask and recipe as settlement.

 

It was discussed for 40 pages here on the com.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:

How about a Parson's Essential or a Churchman's Prescriptor? ;)

Before we all get too excited, exactly what carbon document ink is the good vicar using?

I agree with David, but agreement aside I own the DP-800s (Carbon Desk Pen) and do like it a lot. It has a very thing body/section though so that should be something you consider first.

Hero #232 Blue-Black is my Waterman Florida Blue.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
