Vintage pens-Handmade books-Silly statements

Fill ‘Er Up!

Posted by Dirck on 2 October, 2013

A very long line at the post office which, being rather late sending off a pen (sorry again, Andrew) I couldn’t just stomp away from means little time for today’s entry.  I am thus going to post something that takes little time to look at.

This was apparently seen at the Michigan Pen Show (and stuck onto Youtube by Edison Pens who have recently been doing some pretty cool similar stuff with GIFs).  As a demonstration of the durability of the mechanism, it’s certainly thoroughly exceeded all expectations.  There’s no mention as to whether it’s the original seals, which is not impossible, but I have to imagine that it’s not the original mysterious green fluid.

Hey, wait… mysterious coloured fluid?  That means SCIENCE is happening!

Today’s pen: Sheaffer Sovereign II (not with the vacuum-fill rig)
Today’s ink: Diamine Evergreen (rather darker than the mysterious fluid)
