This Week’s Ink – Oct. 21, 2012

Photo of this week's pen
The pens in this week’s daily carry.

It’s Sunday, that means picking and inking pens for the week ahead. Well that’s the theory, but it’s the same pens this week as the last two weeks.

Actually, the Stipula went dry and I haven’t refilled or replaced it.

The Sailor Pro Gear Imperial Black also went dry. I refilled it with a Sailor black ink cartridge. The Scribal Workshop Kraken Black ink was finicky. I wanted to like it but it was too temperamental. The ink change helped me eliminate the pen as the cause. I went with the ink cartridge because I needed an empty cartridge and I hate to waste ink. I want the cartridge because my ear syringe doesn’t make a good seal for flushing the pen.
