For whatever it's worth it, I wanted to share a few samples of inks.
I've been exchanging some thoughts and opinions on inks with Carry (I hope I spelled her name right) from Reid's Stationery in Calgary. She had fun testing some of my and her own inks, and was so kind to share her efforts with...
Thanks for asking James! Like the phoenix from the ashes (literally), still alive and shaking!
Nowadays, my problem (for my own surprise) is to make a rotation of 20-30 inks work... And I definitely "need" a few more pens to test those (and 80 more) inks in.
De Atramentis Midnight Blue is my favourite Turquoise - the shading is incredible. Then comes Noodler's Turquoise; it's a very well behaved ink. And finally, the too bright for daily use but pleasantly cheerful Ku-jaku.
The original Parker Gel is my favourite; the needle tipped Itoya is my second choice before Monteverde and Visconti. Schmidt is the last in my list.
I looove watches! I'd been keeping an eye on one of those OC for the last few years. I used to have about 35 watches, a few of them G-Shock and Edifice which I don't have anymore. So, finally found an excuse to buy this OC. And I love it too. It's much lighter than the stainless steel Edifice...
I'm a big fan of affordable Orient watches.
If you insist on buying a chronograph, there are plenty of great choices from Citizen, Seiko and Casio in your price range.

I've been making my own yoghurt from 2% cow milk for long time - 4 liters almost every week.
1. Boil the milk in a pot and let it cool down to 46-48°C. The consistent temperature throughout all the stages is very important, it's almost everything in the process of yoghurt making! The amount and...
I just read through the last couple of pages on this thread that I'd missed. Besides Dave's great offer, there's very interesting information here that helped me comprehend a few things about the knives differences, particularly about the Santoku and the Nakiri.
I'm an occasional cook, my wife...
:w00t: That's my face after the first use of the new brush!
Rudy did a great job with this one as usual. The D01 2-band knot is flawless. No surprise, it's a soap destroyer. Typically for this Shavemac grade, it feels very stiff and scrubby but without a hint of scritch.
Here are a couple of...
Thank you everyone for the support, good wishes, and the offers!
Brucered and penmanship have sent me a huge box with shaving supplies which cover my needs for now. I just have to look for a couple of more razors on the BST.
I'm going to use my new brush from Rudy tomorrow, and will post a few...
This July will always bring bad memories to me. As some members already know, I lost all my shaving related stuff and all my belongings in a fire accident recently.
Yesterday, I went to the post office to collect my mail. Much to my surprise, there were a couple of unexpected packages waiting...
