Notes & Updates
I’m writing up my Franklin-Christoph Model 40 Pocket review (look for it on Tuesday) and I’ve run several inks through the pen. I’ll cover them in the pen review, but I’ve updated the ink notes for Montblanc Burgundy Red, Sailor Jentle Epinard, Private Reserve Invincible Black and Noodler’s X-Feather with my experiences using them in a Needlepoint nib.
Holy Smokes Batman! My WordPress stats tell me that Saturday set a new record for page views in one day on this site, breaking the old record of 774 set back in March. Thanks mainly to links from the Pen Addict and The Well-Appointed Desk to recent posts. Thanks!
