This week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination is picked because of it uniqueness. The Franklin-Christoph Model 19 (aka 1901) with Sailor Storia Balloon Green ink. The Model 19 has a broad stub nib from Mike Masuyama. A broad nib of any sort is outside my comfort zone but the stub gives the pen some character. While not a pen I’d pick as a daily writer it provided a nice change of pace.
