Esterbrook Dip-less in an empty #407 inkwell
Esterbrook Dip-less in an empty #407 inkwell

This week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination was my Esterbrook Dip-Less pen. I wrote very little with my fountain pens this week so the convenience of this pen won out when I was at my disk.

Some links of interest…

The DC Pen Show is happening this weekend. Unfortunately I’m not attending, but here’s a couple write-ups as the show began. One from The Gentleman Stationer and another from Gorgeous Ink.

Franklin-Christoph Model 02 Intrinsic! – Inkdependence // I also like this pen and have two, one original and after the slight design changes. I don’t really like the frosted ice finish but I really like the looks of this particular pen, which isn’t on their website.

Announcing United Inkdom – Pens! Paper! Pencils! // A nice idea worth reading and watching. Their first review is the Kaweco Brass Sport

OHTO Rook – Calligraphy Nut // I bought one of these years ago, absolutely worst nib and pen and ever owned and the only one I threw out as not worth the effort to fix. Glad to see some can be good pens.

Tough Love: Pilot Falcon Edition – Super Fun Time // Not every review is positive

The SG50 Fountain Pens – A Roundup – On Fountain Pens // Happy 50th Singapore. I’m surprised to see so many fountain pens celebrating SG50

Apica CD11 A5 Notebook – Pete Denison // I’ve tried, and liked, the Apica notebooks but I’ve yet to work my way through one.
