This Week’s Ink – January 6, 2013

There were quit a few changes from last week. I dropped from 17 to 13 inked pens. A couple of the repeat pens got new ink. The Sailor Pro Gear Imperial was my favorite pen of the week. I started using it so I could review it, but I soon began reaching for it because I wanted to use it. So much so that I added a third Sailor pen this week. There were also a couple new inks. The Iroshizuku Tsuyu-Kusa is a new ink from me. I also pulled out a long forgotten bottle of Noodler’s Walnut to give a try. Both brands were mentioned when I asked for inks to try in pens being reviewed.

So let’s get to the pens…

Writing samples are below, click any image to open them in the gallery.

The Faber-Castell E-Motion was refilled with the Iroshizuku ink so I could give another ink  a try in the pen. It’s the first time I’ve used the brand. I had a couple samples and picked the blue over purple, even though I’m not a fan of blue. I do kind of like this one.

I finished the first three brown inks from my sample collection. I loaded Noodler’s Walnut into a new pen. When I first started I had planned to try the different brown inks in the same Edison pens so the nibs would be similar. That plan was thrown to the curb because I wanted a new pen in the mix and a Sailor medium nib seemed to be a good choice. The ink bottle is over 8 year’s old (I labelled it 2004). It was kept tightly sealed in a light free drawer and seems fine.

So these are my pens and ink for the week ahead.
