This Week’s Ink: April 20, 2013

It’s been almost a month since I’ve posted an update (just a day short of a month). The last time I listed my inked pens there were 16 in the list. I’ve got half that number now.

Four of the 8 pens have Montblanc Ink which I wouldn’t have predicted. I picked up Burgundy Red and Irish Green at the L.I. Pen Show and really like the colors. Especially the Burgundy Mist which is capable of replacing the discontinued Bordeaux as my favorite ink.

The Esterbrook was another L.I. Pen show acquisition and has been a constant writer with Burgundy Red ink since then. While not the most comfortable pen in my hand and the #9555 nib isn;t the smoothest, I just really like using the pen.

So on to the ink and pens…
