Nothing dropped off last week’s list, although a couple pens are nearly dry. But the list did expand with some recent arrivals that I wanted inked up right away. So right to it, the currently inked pens are:

The Faber-Castell E-motion is about to run dry of Oxblood. I really like the ink and the pen but I want to do a review of this pen so I’ll be giving another ink a try. But I’ll be sure to find another pen for the Diamine Oxblood.
Those last four pens are all new to me this week, although I already reviewed the Cross Bailey. The Platinums arrived a couple days ago and I just inked them up and initial impressions are very good.
The Edison Nouveau just arrived today and I’ve barely written with it but it looks even better than the photos.
The Edison Nouveau Premiere has been the only temperamental pen of the bunch. I last used it on the 26th when it was dry for the first letter. Today when I went to add it to my inked pen list it didn’t write. The nib was dry and almost all of the ink was evaporated. I lowered the converter to get the rest of the ink into the feed. So it will be dry soon.
