Fountain Pen Quest Trail Log – September 22, 2019

Should I have stopped buying pens in November 2016? Thoughts on the Lamy Bauhaus | UK fountain pens // This reminded me that my Lamy 2000 has gone unused for too long.

Silvered Souveräns: A Look At The M420, M425, And M430 « The Pelikan’s Perch // Some interesting M400 variations.
