My favorite this week was my trusty Franklin-Christoph Model 66 with R & K Blau-Schwarz LE. It’s been awhile since I used the pen but it wrote right away as always. I had forgotten what a pleasant writing experience it provides.
I wrote the Sheaffer 300, Omas 360 Vintage and Pelikan Piazza Navone dry this past week and enjoyed them all. None were re-inked since I want to bring so new pens into the rotation. I’ll decide which ones to ink up once I return from today’s Commonwealth Pen Show.
