I’ve been reviewing my Favorite 5 lists to see what may have changed. I was also deciding pens to ink up now that the inked pen count was getting low. That’s when I decided I have too many fountain pens. While I could argue it’s not possible to have too many pens in theory, in practice I do have too many. I bought each of these pens to use and with a pen count approaching 150 there’s no chance I’d use each pen at least once a year. Especially if I define “use” as writing a pen dry and not simply flushing it after a set number of days. So it’s time to thin the herd. I prefer removing the band-aid slowly so there will probably be a few more each week.
I’m tempted to pick a number and get down to that number but for now I’ll just work on making it easier to get all my pens in one picture.
