The number of fountain pens that I have inked up at one time has been steadily declining. I had 15 pens inked in September while I started November with 11 fountain pens. I dropped another four and will start December with seven fountain pens inked up.
I wrote five pens dry, and returned all five to storage, and only inked up one new fountain pen – the Cherry Bamboo Pilot Vanishing Point.
On to the pens. As usual, the Esterbrook Dip-less isn’t pictured otherwise the pens are in the same order as the writing samples. Links are to reviews or “This Just In” posts if they exist.
