Sunday Notes and Links

Franklin-Christoph Model 66 with R&K Blau-Schwarz

Franklin-Christoph Model 66 with R&K Blau-Schwarz

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.

Some links of interest from the past week…

  1. Thank you for the link! The Lizard actually looks quite nice (which I can finally say, having seen it in person), and the vintage red torties are WAY nicer than this one, in my humble opinion. That said, I’m crazy about how comfortable it is to use. Sigh.

    • Hi Azizah, even though its probably the same resin, the red looks cheaper to me than the black. I liked your review because it confirmed what I had been thinking based on the photos.

      Thanks,
      Ray
