A very cool nib a very kind friend gave to me :) I decided to give the Black Swan ink a try in it :)

    beautiful flexible nib!

    It is! I love it! ^_^ I never had a flex nib pen before. I've only used dip nibs, which I like a lot too but not as convenient.

    Oh...that's so cool. I've been looking for a flex nib pen too. Noodler's makes one too, but they are out of stock everywhere, lol. They must be cool, because they can't keep them in stock. I'm getting one when I can find one, they are pretty cheap. The ink is pretty too, I was looking at that color the other day on ebay. Might invest in a bottle. I like the army green too. How fun!

    Bonnie Nyachae It's hard to find a flex pen that isn't an expensive vintage or custom made one. My friend Mia let me try her Noodler's flex. It was pretty fun. Good if you want to see what it is like :)

    You should check out Goulet Pens (who I won this ink from as a prize.) They sell ink samples so you can try a lot of inks without investing in an entire bottle. Helps to get an idea of what you might like and try a lot of colours :)
    I can send you some of the Black Swan sometime to try though :)

    Ulli Geiger ;) I am very fortunate to have this. :)

    Gorgeous!!! I've always wanted to try a flex nib pen like that.
  • Bonnie Nyachae 4y

    Yes, it is hard to find one, You really have to be watching closely. Sometimes you can get one reasonable on ebay. I will check out Goulet Pens for ink samples.
    Yes, I would like to try some of the Black Swan, please do send some. I have an extra 5ml tube of Winsor Newton Caput Mortuum to send you, since you said you haven't tried it. Thought you might like it.

    That is a fantastic pen!!! Beautiful calligraphy, as usual.
    I love the Black Swan - use it quite often in my Noodler's flex pen. It shades so nicely.

    Wonderful! :D

    jadecat23 Thank you! :) It's exciting! I hope you will be able to try one sometime :) Have you used flex dip pens a lot?

    Bonnie Nyachae Great! I will send it soon. I do have a small pan of W&N Caput Mortuum, I like it a lot :) I have a thing for those reddish earth colours I think :)

    Karen Thank you :) Yes those Esterbrooks are lovely pens! I like that you can swap the nibs os easily. I like the Black Swan too. It's a lovely colour.

    congalaconga Thanks Fabiana :)
  • Bonnie Nyachae 4y

    Okay, thanks. It's okay if you have a pan of Caput Mortuum. I'll still send you the tube. I have 3 tubes, plus a full pan. I have a thing for the reddish earth colors too. But, I know that is too much for me to use up. :P
  • Gentian Osman 4y

    Bonnie Nyachae Thank you :) I'll put it to good use :D

    Romantic perfection :)

    Greek Salad Thank you ^_^ I love this pen.
