Today as I'm getting ready to start week 8 I realized I scanned this but never posted. My inky love affair of the week.

I'm even worse than mhguda -- I didn't get the uploads done till this afternoon (but my excuse is that I spent several hours yesterday afternoon in an ER, after having a severe dizzy spell at an antiques show; nothing major, but I have to call an ENT specialist tomorrow morning because it's apparently an inner ear thing).

But in the meantime: fpn_1487639919__iotw_2017_7.jpg

Sadly the scan makes this a little redder than it really is (the paper is Tomoe River, and is cream, not white).

ETA: And the ink smells divine as well -- just like heirloom roses. Sadly, no recipient would get to experience it, because it's so fugitive, but for the writer? :wub:

It was the first Sailor ink I bought. Even though it has somehow fallen out of favour, it's still special to me in some way.

(It's probably also the ink of my first ink review :blush: )

 

BTW Tas, I accidentally mixed something that reminds me of Cigar/Rikyu-cha. Are you still making mixes to match that colour? I mixed KWZI Aztec Gold and Grey Plum and got something quite lovely (I don't have C or R with me to compare though).

Interesting, I use it a lot less than I used to.

 

Remember my Cigar mix? Must've had 7 or eight inks in it. Bonkers. I've stopped most of that now but would love to see your Aztec-Plum mix.

That makes two of us. It sounds definitely interesting and unusual.

As I said I don't have Cigar or Ricky with me, so I'm relying on my memory...

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      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
