My favorite fountain pen & ink combo this week came as a shock to me. It was the Omas 360 Vintage (Vintage in name only) with Pelikan 4001 Blue-Black ink. This pen has been temperamental since I got it and has always been flushed in frustration. I’ve even had the nib worked on. It’s a new pen with this ink. Were my first three ink choices the only three this pen won’t like? Is this the only ink the pen likes? The pen will be reviewed eventually but I’ll need to use it some more so it’ll be a month or so.
The Washington D.C. pen show is this week, Thursday through Sunday. I’m not able to go, even though it will no doubt be a good time, with a lot of vendors who skipped last year when I was there. Definitely worth the trip if you can make it. The Facebook page seems to have more information that the website.
