Write Time at 9: January 25th, 2011

Join us live every Tuesday night at 9pm EST for Write Time at 9! We talk pens, paper, ink, and random other things (writing related usually).




Link to Ustream for the vid.

I got a fun new pen, the Platinum Music Pen. I've been interested in the pen for over a year, and what inspired me to get it was that I wanted to get familiar with the nib before Noodler's comes out with their music pen here in a month or so. I have a Pelikan m800 and it's similar in a lot of ways, but a fraction of the price. In any case, it's a cool pen.

Nathan posted a video on Baystate Blue, and I shared my reaction to it. I inked up a brush pen and a Preppy rollerball tip that comes with the 4.5 ounce BSB. I'll be posting more detailed videos soon.

The Ink Drop theme for February is 'My Inky Valentine'....that's all we'll share because we want it to be a surprise! Let's just say they'll be inks great for writing a love letter to your Valentine :) They'll be going out on Feb. 1st, so it's not too late to sign up!

There's also been some interest lately in Noodler's Waterase ink, which is currently unavailable. We're working on that ;)

And lastly, we spent some good time on the Noodler's Flex Pen, how it's used and how to adjust it if you're having any issues with yours. The pen is able to be completely disassembled and has a fully adjustable nib and feed, so a little playing with it can give you just the right experience! I'll be working on detailed videos of the flex pen this week.

  1. I totally agree that you shouldn't have to have a nib adjusted on a $500 pen, as long as it writes like it should. I'm looking at you, Visconti!

  2. The Kuretake water brushes are available at Jetpens and often at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. There are a bunch of water pens that can be used with ink if you add a tight o-ring. I suspect that's what Nathan is doing there?
