This week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination was easily my Parker Duofold c.1928 with Aurora Black ink. It’s been far too long since I last inked up the Parker (over a year according to my records) and it’s been a joy to write with. It’s been mostly long form writing (several full pages as opposed to short notes) and the pen is very comfortable and the nib is smooth. It’s fine nib is a little wet but I’m growing to like that more and more.
