Sunday Notes and Links

My most frequent pen carry this week
Parker Vacumatic and Pelikan M805 in a Nock Fodderstack XL

I didn’t have a favorite fountain pen and ink combination this week. I didn’t do as much writing as usual. The two pens I typically carried were my Parker Vacumatic Maxima with Montblanc Bordeaux ink and my Pelikan M805 Stresemann with R&K Blau-Schwarz LE ink.
