Wettest pens by Gregg Gibson
I am feeling very frustrated because I have tried a number of fountain pens and none of them are nearly wet enough for my taste. I find the Waterman Phileas and Laureat for example far too dry, as are a wide selection of cheap vintage pens I've got on ebay. I've always used Sheaffer cartridge pens,...

Review of Waterman Charleston by sbsawler
I love the Charleston; the writing is smooth, the pen weight and balance is great. I use it daily for the past couple of years and only recently begun to have a problem. The part of the pen where your fingers grasp when you write (i.e. between the nib and the barrel) is starting to have play. It...

Rotring Core question by Bob Lablaw
I bought one a few days ago, and I'm not crazy about the ink flow. It's a bit dry, which makes it a bit scratchy too. I've ordered a converter for it, and will put different ink in it, as well. (I bought the Rotring cartridges.) Is it reasonable to expect anything different? Is their ink not...

College rule? by JimL
Just an idle muse question. The packages of paper cut and punched for three-ring notebook binders for school children (and old children like me, gathering cheap scratch paper in the back to school sales). -- The pages are lined, and one of the two sizes of lines is labelled as "college ruled." ...
