Fountain Pen Quest Trail Log – April 29, 2018

My fountain pen usage was below average this week, which is frustrating because I started the week with 15 inked fountain pens last week. The Sheaffer Balance Oversize did go dry, but that was more because of the lack of ink that I loaded into the pen. It wrote three or four pages then went dry. The other pens are still going strong. I’ve been picking two each day and using them throughout the day, so they are getting used, just not heavily.
