This Week’s Ink – Nov. 18, 2012

Photo of pens inked for the week ahead

There weren’t any pen or ink changes last weekend, but pens began to run dry as the week began.

  1. Gate City New Dunn with a medium nib and Noodler’s Apache Sunset remains one of my favorite pen/ink combinations.
  2. Gate City New Postal with a fine nib and Pelikan Brilliant Black Ink. This has been my main writer for the last few days. It’s a nice writer and its huge ink capacity means it will be around awhile.
  3. Franklin-Christoph Model 02 Intrinsic with a medium italic nib and Waterman blue-black ink. While I linke this pen I haven’t been drawn to pull it from my case for quite a while.
  4. Sailor Pro Gear Imperial Black with a fine nib and a Sailor black cartdridge.
  5. Waterman Edson with a fine nib and Waterman Florida Blue ink.
  6. Sailor 1911 (Burgundy) with 21kt gold medium nib. It’s filled with J. Herbin Lierre Sauvage ink.

The seventh spot is left open since I’m expecting a new pen and a couple nibs early this week and I’ll want to ink them up right away.

I do have a couple other pens inked up but they don’t travel with me. My Franklin-Christoph Model 66 Desk Pen always has ink and is within arms reach at my desk.
