Don’t even know what that is… I bet I start wanting it too lol!

I don’t have any demonstrator. Well … I did have one; Nemosine Singularity but it leaked so badly I had to get rid of it. For some reason I haven’t been as drawn to them as most people seem to be. Perhaps it will come.
Yours looks quite lovely there though 🙂

Thank you :). I have a Singularity that I don’t use too. It just felt very cheap. Sucks because there is an azalea color that just came out that I want to get… but I’m afraid it will just sit like my other one.

Here is a YT vid of the one he made from Leigh Reyes. TOTALLY handmade.

I will watch this! The other pen that seems to be getting a lot of buzz now is the franklin Christoph. Someone put up a cool vid of their demo. I want one!

Beautiful looking combination you have there!
My favourite: Pelikan M200 Clear Demo with Diamine Golden Sands. So beautiful with all the glitter inside. I have had this in the pen from March to October, refilling it every now and then and sometimes thinning the gold and “flushing” the feed with J.Herbin Lie de thé. It did not clog in all that time and wrote like a dream. Hhhm, might ink it up again. 😉

Awesome!!! That is great to hear about a Pelikan, I’ve been a little scared to try the shimmer inks in mine, what kind of nib are you using?
December 16, 2016 at 3:07 am
I use the gold plated steel nib that came with it, it is a wet F nib and writes well, even with all the shimmer.
I might add that I did try to move, use, shake the pen several times per day, like scribble in the morning, turn it around when it sat on my desk, used it for notes in the evening, etc. It may clog if you let it sit and dry out for days or weeks without ever moving it. So, I had no problem with the shimmer nor with washing it out, for which I removed the nib unit that is screwed in in these modern Pelikans.

That is great to hear! I might go ahead and try it with my m205. The pink I just tried is way too pretty not to have a daily use pen lol

This photo convinces me that I need a demonstrator.
Yes you do! 😍

TWSBI Eco just cleaned!
December 15, 2016 at 2:31 pm
Ooo what are you filling it with?
December 15, 2016 at 2:34 pm
Thinking kon peki.
December 15, 2016 at 2:35 pm
Beautiful! I’ve been wanting to get a bottle of that 🙂
December 15, 2016 at 8:22 pm
F-C “iCE” Yeah, those look really cool. I was contemplating a 65 in that style….or Emerald Green, 🙂
December 15, 2016 at 11:03 pm
How often do they go on sale? I’m thinking that will probably be my unicorn haha I want the ice version. I’m ready for that eye dropper on my life!
December 16, 2016 at 6:25 am
The PROBLEM is not a sale, the problem is production. They are REALLY popular and when they show, they don’t last long. When they show, you have to grab. At pen shows F-C has every nib option available in the 65 stabilis and I liked BOTH the pen and quality of their nibs. Their SS nibs are EXTREMELY good. Check out “Fountain Pen Day’s YT vid on that pen, it’s a good one.
December 16, 2016 at 12:09 pm
Wow thanks! If you see it pop up let me know :). I really want their desk size eye dropper with a Masuyama nib, sorry if I butchered that spelling!
