    Where is the best place to buy pens

    I don't think Pilot makes a bad pen. You could do a lot worse starting out than with a Metro from Amazon for $15 and some cartridges if the vendor doesn't include them. Or you could buy the packet of of 6 or 7 Varsity pens in various colors. Then, when you realize you're falling down the...

    Ink Covered Fingers

    stirling makes a pumice-enhanced soap that works a treat. it's replaced lava for me - lava left a slimey feel afterwards that always required extra rinsing. mr. clean magic erasers work as well. Cut off a small square of it and throw it in your laptop bag/desk at work/wherever. easier on...

    Anderson Pen Inks?

    Yes, they are reformulated scribal inks. I've used some Scribal inks. There are a couple in the travelling box, too. They worked well for me. Some people complained of dryness, so Troy/Taylor/Tony/something with a T... made them a little wetter. He was active for a little while on...

    Traveling Ink Box

    Well, I can understand how the MB inks cracked their bottles. They were full. <sniff sniff> And I think my experiment with the snap caps can be declared a failure. If you can't package them in something else that will keep them from flexing or twisting, I say keep them to keep them from...

    How do y'all use all the different colored inks?

    Get some more colors. You won't regret it. If you're worried about not liking the color, go for samples. They're like rabbits! :) And as a note about WCS... they are out of blue, only the black remains.

    How do y'all use all the different colored inks?

    I write technical procedures and drawings and use the different inks to show different types of equipment or process flows. Or highlight certain points or sections. The color itself isn't that important, they cycle based on mood and whim. But I just ave a hard time putting an ink in a pen...
