This week’s favorite wasn’t the most used since it’s pretty much desk bound and I didn’t do much writing there this week. The Edison Huron Grande sat unused for far too long before I inked it up with R&K Blau-Schwarz a week ago. It’s bright red, white, and blue colors are the exact opposite of my usual desk pen, the all blank Franklin-Christoph Model 66. I use it a an eye dropper fill so there’s a lot of ink in that large barrel so it will be around for awhile.
