Happy Fountain Pen day! Today is Fountain Pen day. And I give you another hack.
Goulet Pens just started carrying this inexpensive Nemosine Singularity fountain pen with a #6 nib. Now, I don’t really quite understand the numerical system for nibs. My favorite pens for writing and drawing are Lamy Safari in EF and F. I have a set of interchangeable nibs.
Anyway, I had an idea for the Nemosine and it’s #6 nib. Noodler’s makes a #6 flex nib. I posted a comment on Goulet Q&A asking whether the Noodler’s nib would work on this pen. One of the staff answered that they didn’t know but might give it a try. I went ahead and ordered the pen and the Noodler’s nib. I did my own swap and it works fine. I don’t see a lot of flex, but it’s Ok.
I write daily in my journal (more of a “Commonplace book”). It’s a Circa notebook from Levenger. I use a Lamy Safari fountain pen. The link goes to Goulet Pens but Daniel Smith Seattle store now has a limited selection. The UW bookstore did have them but not sure whether they still do.
My favorite inks:
DeAtramentis Document Brown (for writing)
Platinum Carbon Black (for my sketchbook). It’s permanent and it dries in a flash so I can paint over it with watercolor.
