This week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination is the Franklin-Christoph Model 02 with Pilot Black ink. I didn’t do much writing this week since I was under the weather for most of it but this was the pen I picked early in the week.
It’s the Labor Day weekend here in the U.S., the unofficial end of summer. I compiled this post a bit early, any late links I miss will be next week.
Some links of interest…
Review: Lamy Logo // Too slim for me, otherwise it seems like a nice fountain pen.
Welcome to Pencil Month! — The Purl Bug // Ink fewer pens! Carry a pencil! Say it ain’t so! But seriously, a pencil obsession is one I understand even though it never trespassed into my fountain pen obsession despite my attempts. I still listen to The Erasable Podcaston a regular basis.
Sailor Professional Gear Slim “Sapporo” – Calligraphy Nut // Another nice but too small fountain pen.
Pelikan Souveran M400 White Tortoise – Broad Nib – Ink of Me Fondly // Continuing the them of beautiful pens too small for my tastes.
Field Notes: Item Numbers — Three Staples // Great, something else to obsess over with Field Notes.
Stationery Store Series: Dymocks of Sydney – Palimpsest // I like reading about B&M stationery (or pen) stores. I’m close enough to NYC to be able to get to some (that are still around), although it would still be a daylong adventure to make the travel worth it.
Review: Montblanc Meisterstück Solitaire SE Classique Fountain Pen @couronneducomte @montblanc_world – Gourmet Pens // Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. She bought the pen because it was pretty, all that red gold makes me wince.*
The Architect Nib (and how I still have a blog) – and what about // A nib grind that’s received a lot of attention in the last few months. This time reviewed by someone who typically used the thin nibs I like.
Our Favorite Notebooks for Fountain Pen Use – JetPens.com // An article I missed when it first appeared but thanks to An Inkophile’s Blog I recently caught it. Yes, a retailer trying to move product, but still a wide range of good information.
