Esterbrook #8440 Superfine nib and Pelikan Blue-Black

This week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination this week was my Esterbrook J with a #8440 Cartography nib and Pelikan Blue-Black ink. I wrote the pen dry and immediately re-inked it. It’s not a nib I can use all day but I like the ultra thin line it puts down.
