This week’s favorite pen was the Esterbrook Dip-less which I Reviewed on Monday. I finished cleaning a #407 inkwell and dumped in a bottle of Sheaffer Red to match to pen.
I did a lot of writing this past week and emptied several pens. In a break from past habits I’ve been switching inks but not pens.
Some links of interest…
A couple 2014 DC Pen Show recaps:
- D.C. Pen Show 2014 Recap! — The Gentleman Stationer
- DC Pen Show 2014 (Massive Post!) – Inkdependence!
- An Introvert Goes to the Pen Show – From the Pen Cup
The Commonwealth Pen Show is coming to Somerville, MA, (near Boston). It’s not the same place or organizer as last year’s New England Pen Show. I missed DC but it looks like I’ll be able to make this show since it’s a relatively short drive and hotel parking is free. It Sunday Sept. 28th only.
I enjoy seeing what other people pick as favorites or what they have currently inked:
