new rapidographs and inks

6 May

. . . after a long time, I got the time to pull out my old rapidographs.

and yes, the handlebar moustache is growing 🙂

It was a pleasure to open them completely, leave them soaked overnight in diluted soap water and clean them up the next morning. Opening a rapidograph does not require to be a rocket scientist, but putting it back in the right order, without damaging the slender nib is a challenge.

I bought an orange and a brown ink. excited to use them frequently now that the vacations have set in 🙂
