It is not necessarily my favourite pen in terms of writing experience, but when it comes to beauty it is the one that jumps to my mind. I just marvel at it each and every time.

Wow! Never seen one like that, what's it called?

How about your top three? Five?

I can't narrow it down that far or even close to that so here are just a few random samples.

Wow, some real beauties there, Jar! The stand-out for me is that green floral maki-e - it's gorgeous.

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

Hello Jar,

 

You posted a pen, perhaps Standard brand. Fat with gray marble and a gold stripe.

 

As you know, I started a thread about fat sections. Your pen looks like a winner. Please tell us more about it.

 

Thank you,

 

Alan

It's the Faber-Castell caps that get me. They should be ridiculous but actually they're beautiful. The maki-e pens win the Jar collection beauty contest according to the camera, but a more modest pen can be spectacular in the hand. Sensational selection.

Hi, it is the Montblanc Dumas, the correct signature. The pen is based on the dimensions of the Montblanc 139.

Modest really can rule and be spectacular. I really enjoy very simple but very well made designs as well.

What is the second (uncapped) pen? I like the fat section.

Thank you,

Jar, your photographs and your fountain pens are mesmerizing--all of them! What kind of pen is this blue one (found with the painting of the bird and morning glories)?

Moderation in everything, including moderation.

What is written on this pen? Pretty cool.

There are simply too many, but OK I will play along. I think my most beautiful pen would be the Waterman 42 below. Honorable mention to the Astoria and the lapis Parker Duofold.

I've never met an ugly pen, just ugly nibs.

Really nice set, I keep gravitating towards Carènes and that iconic blue Pelikan.

      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.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
