Hi Daisy!

Welcome to the forum and Happy New Year! I am also located in Pennsylvania, fairly close to you! I live about an hour away in Hanover, but we sometimes take day trips on the weekends to Lancaster.

It is nice to meet you here! :)

So, I ordered a bottle of McCaffery's Penman's Ink in black. I loved it, of course - so nice to write with, and lovely fine hairlines. And, as expected, I did notice it affecting my nib. I didn't use it to the point of completely destroying it, but I wrote about one page with it, and by the end, I could tell a difference in the way the nib wrote, and it looked and felt different as well, more so than usual for that amount of writing. Still, it's a beautiful ink, and I'm glad I got a bottle to use here and there!

Thank you so much, Joy and Jane! I think I might order a bottle just to try and see, with the expectation that it will eat up my nibs and perhaps get a bit icky! I also like the way those amazing fine hairlines look, so I'd like to try writing with it just for that experience!

Wonderful tutorial! Thank you for sharing - I am sure this will be so helpful to many! I also do some of the steps differently, but I am excited to try your method - it looks great!

Thanks for the input, Erica! I haven't tried McCaffrey's...I've wanted to - I think the red-violet color looks so pretty! - but I've heard that people have had trouble with them growing mold, and the thought just icks me out, so I've been hesitant. Did you ever have that problem with McCaffrey's, living in Florida where it is so warm and humid?

Tools & Supplies / Iron Gall Ink

Does anyone have any thoughts to share on iron gall ink? I've never tried it, but am considering ordering some (Old World Iron Gall, particularly). I know it is known to be corrosive, but I am especially curious as to how severe/fast it eats away at the nibs. My go-to nib (Brause 511) is already a bit delicate, so I'm wondering if it will corrode it so quickly that it wouldn't even be practical to use them together.
