Sunday Notes and Links

Sheaffer Crest on Doane PaperMy favorite pen & ink during the past week was my Sheaffer Crest with a extra fine nib and filled with Sheaffer Red ink. The extra fine nib puts down such a thin line that it went another day (with about six pages of notes) after the converter looked empty. Between the color and the nib I forget all about it being a thin pen. A couple pens also went dry and I’ve resisted the urge to ink up replacements. So I’m down to eight inked pens which is low for me. What’s left has plenty of ink so I’ve been resisting the urge to ink up more pens.

Some articles of interest from around the web…

The Washington DC pen show is finishing up today. I wasn’t able to attend so I’m living vicariously through these posts along with Twitter and Instagram:
