It’s been three weeks since my last “This Week’s Ink”. Between a refill of my favorite of the bunch and putting others in storage I was down from 11 to seven pens. So I inked up one new pen for the week ahead. The Sheaffer Balance is my latest addition so I was eager to ink it up.
My favorite of the bunch was the 1942 Parker Vacumatic in silver pearl with nickel trim. I like it even more then the comparable ’39 Vacumatic in golden brown. They write similarly but I’m partial to the silver coloring. The pen is almost empty and it’s time to give the pen some time off so the others have a chance. But it won’t be much time off.
So the currently inked pens are…
Franklin-Christoph Model 66 (Extra Fine) – Rohrer & Klingner Blau-Schwarz // Edison Huron Grande (Extra Fine) – Montblanc Irish Green // 1942 Parker Vacumatic Maxima (Fine) – Montblanc Bordeaux // 1939 Parker Vacumatic Maxima (Fine) – Rohrer & Klingner Sepia // Sailor 1911 Sterling (Fine) – Montblanc Bordeaux // Edison Collier (Extra Fine) – Namiki Blue // Platinum 3776 Century (Fine) – Platinum Brown cartridge // Sheaffer Balance Full Size (Fine) – Iroshizuku Fuyu-syogun
