This week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination is my Black Stonewashed Kaweco AL Sport with a extra fine nib and a Kaweco Red ink cartridge. This pen snuck back up on me. I had decided to sell it to make room for the new brass model. I inked it up to test it out before selling. It’s been inked since and wasn’t put up for sale. I’ve been carrying it in the pen loop of my Taschenbegleiter. It can be annoying at times but I don’t worry about dings in the pens so I may keep it there.
Speaking of selling pens, in the blatant self-promotion department, three of the pens are left, the Vanishing Point 2012LE, the Kaweco AC Sport and the Edison Herald.
