I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

Not another contribution to this thread, but…

 

My wife dragged me Christmas gift shopping for her young cousins (which is a term that confuses me), and we ended up getting a set of the Kontour game for one of the ten(?)-year-olds, and a set of Rory's Story Cubes for her younger sister. (Last year we gave them Pilot Plumix pens and blank Paperblanks journals in which to draw.)

 

I've been trying out the idea of Kontour with fountain pens, and it's not bloody easy to do actually!

Looks fun, though! :)  Sort of like Pictionary.

Wow.  Makes me glad I'm not from a culture where I have to know this sort of thing - I have to use a spreadsheet just to figure out how the whole numbered cousins thing (first, second, etc.) and "n times removed" works - it makes sense when I'm looking at the spreadsheet, but an hour later, I can't remember it anymore!

Not being able to draw circles or even curved lines, when trying to convey something pictorially, is hard! Especially if you're only allowed 15 (straight) lines in total.

These two lists capture all(?) of the terms the Chinese use for different types of cousins:

and that's before factoring the ‘rank’ within a family unit or generation into the term of address for an individual.

I agree with that.  I'm not too awful at Pictionary, depending on the word, but that limit + the time-limit would be very challenging.

      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
