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.
