  •   happyeclair Darn it. Terre de Feu is now on my list of inks to buy! Haha 3d
  •   prayerworksart Wow 3d
  •   leighpod @happyeclair it is a little hard to capture, but it can be paler than this. Another great ink, more dramatic than Terre de Feu, is Diamine Ancient Copper. :) 3d
  •   happyeclair I should really go to the next pen meet and test out more inks! Thanks for the tip. I'll be on the lookout for it. @leighpod 3d
  •   leighpod @happyeclair invitation to hang at my place and geek out over ink with @cnuguid stands. 3d

leighpod Athena is the house brand of Maruzen in Japan. The ink is new. The pen is from World War II. Whenever you pick up a fountain pen, even a new one, you become part of humanity's writing history. 6d

leighpod Made a reservoir/overfeed from thin brass sheet that we use as a shim for nibs. These lyrics were written with one dip. Not bad. 6d

leighpod Hey Blue, here is a song for you. Ink on a pin, underneath the skin, an empty space to fill in. 1w

  •   platypusaroundtheworld Which Danitrio is that, please? first time i've been tempted by one! 7d
  •   leighpod @platypusaroundtheworld the #danitrio is the Hanryo size, pretty much the smallest. The design is called fukiyose, the Japanese word for "different kinds of colored leaves blown together by an autumn wind". (Google is my friend.) 7d
  •   platypusaroundtheworld Thank you, leighpod! I am adding it to my list... 6d

leighpod A hack attributed to @sbrebrown, and what a great one it is! Brause Rose nib in a Noodler's Ahab fountain pen. 1w
  •   oliveleafcalli Great mod! 1w
  •   emre_caliskan I tried Noodlers 54 Massachusetts, it worked as well. Great shot! @leighpod 1w
  •   sbrebrown Wonderful calligraphy! I'm glad you enjoy this Frankenpen 1w
  •   indigo_inferno Wow! 1w
  •   ricaespiritu It will start to rust if you keep it more than 24 hours. I fell in love with the brause rose nib when I learned that it fits on both the ahab and the konrad. :D 1w
  •   jgrasty @leighpod do you have problems with the nib corroding since that type of nib is made of cold rolled steel? 1w
  •   leighpod @jgrasty Yep. This time I am testing how long it will take. :) 1w

leighpod More Anais Nin: "It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken." 1w
