Sunday Notes and Links

Rotring 600 Lava and Athena Sepia InkThis week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combo was the Rotring 600 Lava with Athena Sepia ink. Both are new to me. The Rotring 600 has an extremely smooth nib, so smooth I can forgive it for being a medium. The Athena Sepia ink has a nice color and puts down a line true to the nib width.

For a full list of the fountain pen related articles I read this week you can visit Fountain Pen Links. The ones I especially enjoyed are:
