Hi, Jamerelbe. I've always preferred plastic/acrylic/resin over any metal as the primary body of a fountain pen. My preference is based on look to the eye and feel in in hand. So, my own preference favors the Delrin or Acrylic versions (equally light) of the Decograph. The Decograph aluminum versions, though, are light (but not as light as the others), and one can't doubt their exterior durability compared with plastic/acrylic/resin. The battleworn Violet has an interesting look, but I'm not in love with the look, although purple is one of my favorite colors (especially when I was younger); I guess I prefer anodized aluminum over raw aluminum for eye appeal. I liked the performance of the pens, so I also wanted examples of each material in favored colors. I hope this explanation helps you.

 

Thanks @donnweinberg, that's a real help - now I have to decide whether to buy a Decograph before the current sale ends (a few models still sitting at $100 till midnight June 30!), or whether to hold off and hope for a future sale... I think you've convinced me to hold out for an acrylic version - though the red-with-black-furniture Al model looks pretty sweet!

Thanks for the nice photos. Do you find the copper pen comfortable to write with? I've never tried very heavy pens so I'm curious about how the weight affects writing.

I haven't written with the Copper INK model yet, but I'll post here after I do so. I surely won't post the cap when I write with it.

I just got myself the Decograph in Delrin (full-black 'stealth' model) with a Titanium EF nib.

 

It hasn't disappointed. I find this pen to be nicer than the photos would imply and the photos show a handsome pen. What I refer to is the precision and low tolerances in construction. It's a very nicely made pen.

 

The Titanium nibs tend to be wetter than SS options. As a result, this Tit. EF writes like a SS F. As with all the nibs on my KK pens (I have a Ink Copper and Aluminium), this nib is nicely tuned and writes well.

 

It makes for a great EDC pen.

      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.

      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.

      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

      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
