This week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination was hard to choose, so I didn’t. The pictured Vanishing Point was used the most times because I took a lot of notes where the click mechanism was perfectly suited. It has a Pilot black ink cartridge. My problem is that I’m equally content with the currently inked pens. One did write dry and a couple others are close so it won’t be too long before new ink enters the mix. I avoided inking up any new pens since they would probably get used more than the others and I want to write them dry.
