No “This Week’s Ink” this weekend and an abbreviated Notes & Links. A couple pens went dry but haven’t been re-inked or replaced. On Friday a water pipe broke in an apartment above me and I’ve been mopping and drying since then. Luckily I worked from home of Friday and was able to move all the electronics out of the way of the water. One thing that dig get swamped was my empty box storage closet which included the fountain pen empties. Guess I have an answer to the question of whether I should keep the old boxes, at least for some of them.
I’m almost done with the Sailor Pro Gear Imperial Black review. I just need to proof read it and get some photos. Hopefully the sun will still be out later today and I can get some photos.
Now for the links.
Most of you probably already read these sites, but I decided to list the sites I’ve spent the most time reading lately. This isn’t comprehensive, just the sites I been visiting lately, and I hope to put together a more complete list in the future. The link is just to the most recent article I liked, be sure to look around.
Inkdependence recently had a review of Noodler’s Antietam which got added to my want list. It’s similar to two colors I like.
The PenAddict has a website with reviews and weekly links (in addition to his podcast). I wouldn’t be surprised in 100% of you already visit the site. Brad was nice enough to link to several of my posts over time and sent a ton of traffic here (Thanks Brad!). Saturday’s links included one to a review of Noodler’s Lexington Grey. I’ve always liked black inks but have only recently begun to appreciate grey as more than watered down black. Another ink for my want list.
Looking for more to read? Inkophile publishes links to interesting articles nearly every week.
Inktronics is another regular for me. I linked to a pen review last week, but he also does notebook reviews such as the Palomino Luxury Notebook.
Ed Jelly has great hand written reviews. His latest is Diamine Majestic Purple. I don’t have a need for another purple, but I still read and enjoyed the review. Ed just started writing stationary reviews for FPGeeks (congrats Ed!). His first in on the Clairefontaine Classic Side Wirebound Notebook.
