Fountain Pen Quest Trail Log – Nov. 6, 2017

Trick, no Treat

The week began on a bad note, with a halloween trick. I bent the nib on my favorite pen was bent. Since I didn’t notice the bent nib before starting to fill the Visconti Homo Sapien I figure it bent during the fill. The ink was low so the bottle was tipped and the nib at the bottom. I guess my grip on the pen was as firm as I thought when using the power filler. The nib actually still writes well but it’s time to send it off for repair.

Repeating Past Mistakes?

I had planned to continue my intermittent use of of a Traveller’s notebook as my paper planner/notebook. That changed when I ordered another Hobonichi Techo for 2018. I’ve used these in the past but not as a planner. After using the Travelers Notebook for awhile I think the Hobonichi will address some of the shortcomings of the TN (smaller, more space per day.) I’m probably both optimistic and foolish.

Paul wrote about the recent Scriptus pen show. He also mentioned it would probably be his last post since he’s not planning to renew his hosting plan when it expires in January. So if you want to catch on on ink reviews (and other great posts) your time is limited.

  1. It does look a bit like Gonzo from the Muppets though.
