This week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination was my Esterbrook Dip-less with Montblanc Corn Poppy ink. I have to admit it won by default. Most of my writing this week was done direct to keyboard. The convenience of this pen meant I used it whenever I was at my desk and not banging on the keyboard.
