This week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination is also my newest, which does give it an edge. It’s the Franklin-Christoph Model 20 with a medium nib and Graf von Faber-Castell Garnet Red. I was surprised I like the medium nib so much. I bought it with the intention of having it modified. I’ll probably still have it turned into a left oblique, but I’m in no rush.
