Levenger TrueWriter and L-Tech

Hello dear readers,

It’s been a while since I last made a real update to my blog. Sorry about that.

When you see me posting quotations and profound thoughts, I’m doing that just to keep the pulse alive and the vital signs going, lest this blog be left for dead.

Today I want to talk to you about the Levenger pen acquisitions I’ve made of late and the discoveries I’ve made while tinkering with their nibs.

Brause “Blue Pumpkin” Nib

Hello one and all.

I wanted to share with you some of my experiences with a newly discovered (to me) dip nib by Brause, called the No. 361 nib. It goes by various names, the “Steno” nib, or the “Blue Pumpkin”.

Let me just say that the 361 is an amazing nib! It’s super flexy and needle-point fine. So you can achieve some really stark line variation with this thing.

Kaweco Ice Sport and Dia2 Nibs

Hello dear readers,

I have been lagging on updating my blog with new entries for several weeks now. I have many ideas but can’t find the time to put them all to life.

Today I want to share with you a recent discovery I made about Kaweco pens.

Lamy Vista Eyedropper Conversion

Here’s a video I did some time back of an eyedropper conversion of a Lamy Vista pen.

On the face of it, a Lamy Vista is not a pen that seems a good candidate for eyedropper filler conversion, given the large viewing windows on the sides of the barrel.

But with some water sealant glue and some determination. I was able to plug all of the holes and make the entire barrel into a giant ink reservoir.

I was pretty proud of this when I made the first one.

I’ve done 4 of these so far, and each one is perfect. Not a single drop of leaked ink.

This video is done in two parts.

Part II of this video is available here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSMhsTKSbL8)

Enjoy..
