I had been up to a dozen pens inked at one time during the month but I’m back down to eight, which is the same number I started April with, although some inks and pens have changed. Only four pen & ink combos remain from April 1st. I was itching to ink up a couple more as the month began but I’ve resisted so far although that was made easier since I like the mix that is currently inked.
As usual the writing samples are in the same order as they appear in the photos. Except for the Esterbrook Dip-Less which isn’t shown in the tray. You can follow the link for that one in order to see photos of it. The writing samples are on Tomoe River Cream paper.
