Currently Inked – September 2017

This Currently Inked is extremely late but at least the month is less than half over. I actually started writing it as August ended and I’ve updated it to be current. My update was more deleting than actual updating so I could get it posted and in the past.

I had a bit of a pen party to coincide with the Washington D.C. Pen Show since I wasn’t able to attend the show in early August. I inked up 16 fountain pens for the party. Ten of them were inked from the Diamine Music Ink collection. I’d used a couple of the inks but most were unused and it was time to give them a try.

The Diamine Music Bach was the only ink I hated. It crept everywhere and I’m still trying to get it out of the converter where a purplish sheen continues to cling to the sides. It was the only party pen to be flushed early.

Because of the pen party I started September with all the fountain pens that were inked up when August began. After September began I did write a couple fountain pens dry. The Pilot Vanishing Point went dry although I immediately popped in another Pilot Black cartridge. The Aurora Optima went dry a couple days ago and I’ll be flushing it out. If the party pens don’t go dry this month I’ll probably have a pen flush part at the end of the month.

I started the month with the following pens and inks.
