Sheaffer Balance II Aspen

Most of my writing was done at home this past week so I got to use my favorite pen of the them all. In fact it tops my Fav 5 list. The Sheaffer Balance Aspen is a gorgeous pen but it’s history of being fragile keeps it around the house. The ink is Montblanc Permanent Grey.
Some links I found interesting this past week…
Pelikan made some announcements which will almost certainly end up costing me some money. FP Geeks brought news of the Pelikan M805 Stresemann. A beautiful pen with the only negative being the price. I compared the M800 and the M1000 at a pen show this year and decided the the M800 was the pen for me. This one has the looks to match the writing experience and may make me open my wallet for it’s high price. The Pelikan’s Perch brought news of the M200 Café Crème Due. Other than “in 2015” and approx. $154) there’s not much info.
