A new life form in Canyon Rust...

Recommended Posts

Opened the mostly-full (less-used) Monteverde Canyon Rust - whoa, something "other" - a viscous shiny mass, edge-to-edge, stared up at me.

 

How to bring back? Or can it be?

 

I do have distilled water and Photo-Flo here.

Looks like bacteria to me. I'd chuck it out (onto the street, not in the sink)

Oh it was tossed in the trash right after those pics were taken and sent to Amazon for a full refund!

My "Goop" had no surface features that allowed photographic illustration, sadly. I thought a Q-Tip would stand up straight when inserted but, no - almost - but a Q-Tip slowly leans against the throat of the bottle. Members will have to take my word for it.

No one to blame. I've had this ink for several years (?) Let's face it: I poked the ink some time in the past with something that grew... OK, where did I put that flamethrower?

An old bottle of Diamine Antique Copper I had years ago turned into a blob of glup. Tried to crawl out the bottle and attach itself to my brain but I was too quick for it. Or so I remember. It could have reformed my memories ...

I got a replacement bottle from Yafa the distributor in 2019 for my gooped Horizon Blue and read they fixed the bad batches.

 

Depending on age, might be worth checking with them if no luck with the retailer.

 

Maybe ink needs vintage labels!

😆 If you tend to be a bit crustier than you used to, it may be a sign it got you.

Oh, that explains it.

Most retailers will replace it right away and every manufacturer I have ever worked with has quickly made it right.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

      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
