Fountain Pen Quest Trail Log – May 27, 2018

It’s memorial day weekend here in the U.S., which makes it the unofficial start of summer, even though summer doesn’t officially start for another few weeks. A couple days of 80º+ temperatures, although it’s supposed to dip into the low 60’s today. The humidity has yet to take hold, so it’s comfortable enough to sit on the porch and do some writing, without sweating all over the paper.

It’s all relative, but my fountain pen usage did pick up this past week, although it’s still low. Mostly lists and notes, but a few brainstorming sessions and article drafts were thrown into the mix. My favorite pen & ink were the Fisher of Pens Hermes, with its fine nib and Iroshizuku Shin-Ryoku ink. The pen was written dry. When it went dry my usage of the Sailor KOP picked up, even though it’s a wider medium nib.
