Edison Huron Grande Extra Fine Nib and R&K Blau-Schwarz LE ink

This week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination is again my Edison Huron Grande with R&K Blau-Schwarz LE. As my other pens run dry I’m left with fewer pens & inks that stand out. So the often used Edison Huron Grande rose above my boredom of constant use. Since I was at my desk a lot this week I often reached for this pen and ink over other choices.

Some links of interest…

Review: Jinhao 3000 – Year of the Tiger — Alt. Haven // A little to gaudy for my taste, but it’s certainly a lot of pen for the price.

Aurora Optima Fountain Pen Review – Hey there! SBREBrown // Another Italian pen, but easier for me to resist than the Omas Ogiva.

Vintage Pen Primer, Part II: The Parker 51 — The Gentleman Stationer // *This was on my list for my first pen show. But once I saw them I couldn’t get into the hooded nib.
