Currently Inked – August 19, 2014

August is half over and there’s been some changes in the ink that’s in my fountain pens, although not to much changed in the pens themselves. Contrary to my typical practice I’ve kept a couple pens in the rotation but changed out the ink.

The Esterbrooks were inked because the nibs are for upcoming reviews, one of which went up yesterday. Three of the pens are still inked with recently reviewed ink – the Ivanhoe, Pelikan and Franklin-Christoph. I like the ink so don’t want to flush any of it, but the pens never seem to get much use due to the competition.

The Edison Menlo and Pilot Custom 823 both went dry late last week. I plan to re-ink them but I’m still debating what ink they get next.

The writing samples are in the same order as the pens, except for the Esterbrook Dip-less which isn’t in the picture. Follow the link if you want to see pictures of it. As usual, links are to my reviews of the pen or ink if they exist.

    • Hi Azizah, it came with a bottle of turquoise so you’re not alone in this thought. And even though I have another pen inked with Peacock Blue (which is a turquoise ink), I’m not a fan of turquoise. I admit this does put me in the minority.

      Thanks for reading,
      Ray
