Esterbrook Dip-less in an empty #407 inkwell

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.

  1. Thanks Ray for the should out. Glad to see I’m not the only one puzzled by this. I just recently picked up a TWSBI 580-AL from Pendleton Brown with his tuning. WOW was it nice.
