This Week’s Ink: February 23, 2013

Oops. I just noticed that last week’s picture was wrong. It’s fixed now. That’s what I get for not taking a new picture. It’s worth mentioning because the pens from this week are all carry overs from last week. The Vac 700 will get an ink change. For today I’m carrying it around with water to see if it will leak with the blind cap open for writing (not yet). I still haven’t decided what ink to put in it tomorrow.

The Liaison Cobra did go dry but I put the rest of the sample in the pen, then I ordered a bottle.

Despite the cost, I think Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu-syogun and Shin-ryoku will always be inked in one of my pens and I have bottles of both. (Note to literal net – that’s one pen each, not mixed). I really like the color and properties of these inks.

The Platinum Century 3776 gets little use, but true to Platinum’s claim, the nib stays wet, ready to write.

Here are the pens. As usual, links are to posts about the pen or ink.
