Yeah. Looks like the rest of the feed is pretty well gummed in there too. Might just replace the pen.

Yikes, sorry for your loss!

But I have to agree. The Murasaki Shikibu is a nice color.

 

Diamine has a few purples, I haven't tried them though.


I have the Diamine Imperial Purple and like it quite a bit.

 

 

Tangster, yikes. I don't think the Century 2 feed is supposed to be removable. You might be able to find a new section with the feed and nib installed, though. I've seen them for sale on eBay before.

Any reason why you wanted to remove the feed?

Easier to clean. If you mean why I want to remove the feed now it's broken, if I can get it out I'll try and find a replacement feed.

Ugh, I keep forgetting to post pics of what most people use in class and stuff. (cheap dollar store 10 pack pens) :/ I always use this .5 g2 I have (I've used it since last year, even keeping it through college summer programs a such). biggrin.gif (some kids use .7's)

Alright...but the ammonia solution and soaking can clean pretty well...usually.

I usually go with warm water that has a couple drops of dishwashing fluid in it and let it soak overnight. It successfully brought 4 vintage pens from the 70's and 50's back to life for me.

Anyone tried arm writing recently?

 

I tried yesterday, its pretty relaxing, and my grip on the pen was loosened (read: more comfortable). It also opened up the writing. The letter forms were not pretty, but they were consistent.

 

Next thing I guess would be to learn controlling the arm movement with some help from the hand.

I try it every now and then. Makes my writing too big to be suitable for notes though.It's more annoying than anything else in my opinion. I prefer a wrist-forearm style with finger movements for small flourishes...possibly dictated by the fact my arms tend to stick to the desk and can't be relied on to move in the small increments needed for fine handwriting.

What you're mentioning is the proper way, and the recommended one, where the arm makes the bigger movements and the fingers make the finer movements.

 

But, using the arm alone sort of 're-calibrates' the motor control. And its relaxing for a change.

Looks interesting, but pretty expensive for a ball pen.
