Ambiiiiiiition!

Posted by Dirck on 11 April, 2013

Please, if you will, imagine a large bearded man dressed like a stetl-dweller singing out the title.  It will complete the effect.

I’m about to go and renew the plates on my vehicle, and rather than leave you with nothing to read on a Thursday, I want to urge you to go over to Flounder’s MindThots and read of his mad scheme and determined efforts to amend a common or garden Chinese cartridge pen into a vacuum-filler (like a TWSBI 700).  To consider the thing is audacious, and to bring it off… well,  I’m astonished out the far side of amazement.

Today’s pen: Waterman Phileas (which has a more moderate sort of modification– a bold point reshaped to a 0.9mm stub)
Today’s ink: Diamine Rustic Brown (chosen to cause nervousness in low-end bureaucrats)
