Fountain Pen Quest Trail Log – March 3, 2019

My fountain pen usage ticked up a bit recently. I wrote one pen dry. My Fraklin-Christoph Model 03 Iterum (review), with its extra fine nib and Montblanc Meisertück 90 Years Permanent Grey ink went dry earlier this week. This is the pen I’d been carrying in my Fodderstack XL.

It’s been replaced with the Franklin-Christoph Model 02 (review)with a medium stub nib. I usually want an extra-fine nib in the Fodderstack, but I decided to try this.

This site will finally see some new reviews next week. I’m going to start doing some long term reviews of pens that have been in my accumulation. The first is a pen that’s gotten a lot of use and already scheduled for Monday. No promises on frequency, but since they are for pens I’ve had a long time they should be quicker to write. Quicker is relative to my last review being over two months ago.

I plan to start thinning the pen accumulation (think I’ve said that before). The current plan is to post a pen or two for sale on this site every Monday or Tuesday, then list them on eBay if they don’t sell by the weekend.

Housekeeping: I’ve disabled “likes” along with the sharing buttons on this site. So if you’re looking for them, they aren’t there.
