Ink and Pen Notes: Caran d’Ache Geneve with Kaweco Red and Pelikan Edelstein Tanzanite

Caran d'Ache Geneve medium nibNow that my Caran d’Ache Geneve review is finished I decided to flush the pen, even though I’ve been trying to write my pens dry. As I said in the review, the pen is a nice pen and a nice writer but it doesn’t grab my attention. I know I’d always be picking one of my other pens to use.

I had been using Pelikan Edelstein Tanzanite (also a cartridge) before the Kaweco Red and I had some annoying skipping problems with the ink. It was so annoying I swapped the ink.

I inked the Geneve with Tanzanite on Dec. 6th and in Dec 12th I got tired of the skipping and swapped it for a Kaweco Red cartridge without cleaning the pen.

The pen wrote well with the Kaweco Red cartridge. It’s your basic good nib with your basic good ink. Nothing spectacular but a problem free writing experience.

I take the photos with the pens shows any all signs of use, I don’t clean the nib or the photos. The macro shots sure do highlight all the dirt and dust. But the pen was writing just fine before the photo shoot.
