Sunday Notes and Links

Photo this week's favorite pen and ink

Pelikan Souverän M805 Stresemann with R&K Blau-Schwarz LE ink

This week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination is a repeat of last week’s choice. My Pelikan M805 Stresemann and R&K Blau-Schwarz LE ink. The pen is nearly empty so they probably won’t be back next week as I plan to switch up the next ink. I know, boring! But when I get hooked I stay hooked.

Some links of interest (so not boring)…

KAWECO – canetas e coisas // A Kaweco that’s not a Sport and is very business-like

Pen Review: Pilot Custom 74 – The Pen Habit – // I like the aesthetics of this pen a bit more than Matt. It’s much better (IMO) than the designs I’ve seen at retail in the U.S.. I especially like the green. If the trim wasn’t gold I’d probably be considering this pen.

The Nakaya elastic nib FAQ. – Leigh Reyes. My Life As a Verb. // Elastic nibs are new to me. If I have heard of them before it didn’t stick, and it seems like it would have.

Finding Journal Inspiration – A Penchant for Paper

NUUNA GRAPHIC NOTEBOOK REVIEW – The Pencilcase Blog // Interesting notebook. Dotgrid is my preferred paper when lined isn’t appropriate and matching the dot color to the cover is intriguing. Unfortunately the price and fountain pen ink issues make it a non-starter for me.

Minimal Sketchkit – Pens! Paper! Pencils! // Nice!

Maruman Mnemosyne Notebook Review – The Ink Blob // I’ve tried the brand once (different notebook) and liked it. Not sure why I didn’t get more.

Paper review – Field Notes Cherry Graph — The Purl Bug // Graph ruled paper is my my last choice which puts me in the minority it seems. If you’re in the majority these may interest you.

How-To: Clean a Pelikan Fountain Pen – The Pelikan’s Perch

Franklin-Christoph: Eyedropper Mania! — The Gentleman Stationer

Scribble Pen Scam – Backstage Media – The Tech Files – // I hate to waste a link on this, but if the Scribble pen has caught your interest as it’s tried various launches then you need to read this. And never consider Scribble again. It was also discussed Thursday’s Pen Addict podcast which is where I found this link.

Check out all of this week’s links at Fountain Pen Links. If you’re looking for information about a specific pen or ink be sure to visit Pennquod.
