    I used a 1831 Schaeffer Mini with a 14k semi-flex fine nice to create some product tags in Copperplate. Does that count?

    This pen originally a fountain pen but in my hand I feel like using many pens as did pens.
    This is a new pen I have added to my pen drawer and it is a desk pen by Wahl Eversharp . So it is going to be another dip pen in my pen lot.
    It is wring well after I fixed and re-sacked polished and clean. So this century old antique pen is having a new life now.

    I again used this Metal dip pen holder with a Geo.W. Hughes Shoulder dip pen to practice my drills on Copperplate scripts.
    The ink I used is my own home Made walnut ink " I named it as Thames River Ink "

    Pen holder is beautiful, too.
    My other pen is a Montblanc.

    And my other blog is a tumblr!

    Either it wasn't checked in the box at the bottom of the Manage Attachments box and inserted inline or it wasn't inserted inline into a post properly. You have to use it or you lose it after an hour. When you see it in your post as code it will have an attachment number and then appear as the image when you post your reply or post. Always check the Preview to see if it's there before you press post reply. If it's not in the right position you can copy the short line of code and move it somewhere else.

    Your attachments are all viewable in your Settings (left hand column) and can be accessed and deleted there.

    This is a beauty. Love this nib and very great nib with a light hand if not this nib on a wrong hand, will eat every strokes while it travel through all the lettering.
    I love the feeling of all antique holders even some pens are very short in the hand. Very nice writing too Robalone!!!!

    Woo, lovely instrument. Excellent writing 👍🏻👍🏻 You've certainly got the flourishes on those caps sussed !
    Always amazes me that people actually used these things probably daily , and may not have given it a second thought.
