Karas Customs Ink Fountain Pen uncapped

My favorite pen of the last week was the one that just arrived this week. The Karas Customs Ink with Montblanc Mystery Black is almost through its first converter fill. It’s a big pen, and while it is heavy it isn’t as heavy as its solid steel bar looks make it out to be. I still haven’t used it for longer than about 20 minutes at one time, but I haven’t felt any fatigue.
Some links I found interesting this past week…
