Fountain Pen Quest Trail Log – June 12, 2019

It’s been over a month since my last trail log. I’ve been collecting links during this time, so the list is much longer than usual and some of the links are old. But, I figured I might as well keep them in the post rather than spend more time editing.

I did get my apartment packed up and I moved out. That includes packing up all my pens. I took the opportunity to grab some family photos since they are all in one place. Plus, maybe for insurance purposes, although I hope not.

My fountain pen usage continues to be low, mainly a Pilot Vanishing Point that I carry in my shirt pocket, or the Kaweco Brass Sport that I carry in my jeans pocket.
