Sunday Notes and Links

Franklin-Christoph Model 20 medium nib with Noodler's King Philip RequeimThis week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination was my Franklin-Christoph Model 20 in Tiger Red acrylic with Noodler’s King Philip Requiem. I just love the color of both the pen and the ink. It’s a standout among the pens I have inked, which is why I wrote it dry this week.
