Interesting, I haven't had good luck with glass nibs. But then again I got a vintage pen. Maybe I will try it when I am in taiwan next.

I have a dip glass pen. Very tricky to use. You have to rotate it just right, and it is very ink sensitive. Some inks work - some don't.

Can't believe how expensive those ones are!

35000+tax is indeed really really expensive for what it is...... Like seriously? It costs as much as a used MB 149 or Pelikan M1000...... Only so slightly cheaper than a Izumo. WTH

I say its more a return to the realm instead ; glass nib fountain pen was actually pretty mainstream in the just post war era in Japan and Taiwan cause then the Mfr was unable to source proper material for making nibs and even if they find some it would be in restricted supply as well as being too expensive, the glass nib was used out of necessity; not any artistic or creative ambitions. Of course the situation only last really short while until everything economics get back into track.


Still I do not think the current vogue make much except for being fashion and hype, and te price being asked for is simply out of this world

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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
