Currently Inked Pens and New Ink - Feb 12, 2017

Currently Inked Pens and New Ink

My fountain pen usage stayed about steady with the previous week. Which means it was about normal for me. I did write two pens dry on Saturday. The Visconti Homo Sapien and the Aurora Optima. Neither one has been replaced. A new bottle of ink (Akkerman Dutch Masters 09 Steenrood “Red Stone” van Vermeer) made it’s way to me once the snow was cleared. I’m debating which pen to put it in.

Pen Shows & Clubs

The Los Angeles pen show is at the end of this week, from February 16th to 19th. (I wrote the same sentence last week, but this week it’s true.)
