Sunday Notes and Links

Franklin-Christoph Model 25 with a bottle of Sailor Storia Ballon Green
Sailor Pro Gear Regency Stripe extra fine with R&K Blau-Schwarz LE
Pilot Vanishing Point Cherry Bamboo with medium left oblique nib and Pilot Blue ink (cartridge, not the bottle shown)

I didn’t play favorites this past week and I ended up writing three pens dry, although one was a bit of a cheat since it just had a partial fill. I’m down to six inked fountain pens and that includes the dip pen sitting in the inkwell on my desk. I haven’t actually checked, but this has got to be the lowest number of inked pens in a long, long time. I haven’t been anxious to ink up new pens because I really enjoy what I still have inked.
