A Year Later: Refilling Rollerballs with Fountain Pen Ink

A year ago, I decided to try three rollerball alternatives that I could refill with fountain pen ink.

The Kaweco Sport Flex Mod Failure Report

I’m not responsible and definitely not an expert in this field.  A friend has been challenging me to grind a reversible fine/stub nib for quite some time now. I finally took him up on the challenge. After some trial and error, I have come […]

Noodler’s #41 Brown Cheap Paper Review

Noodler’s #41 Brown Cheap Paper Review Let’s start this review with a Japanese EF nib in the form of the Pilot Penmanship. It is a bit light, but almost no feathering. I’m unsure if I would use this ink regularly in such a fine nib. Let’s move up to an F to M nib found […]
