This summer when I got a couple of new pens I just "had to" ink them up right away instead of waiting for some of the others to run out first. Tonight it was finally cleaning day and let's just say not all of these are getting inked back up right away.
This is probably the first time since I got it in 2019 I'm not imidiately re-inking the aquamarine Lamy Studio, what a great pen the Studio is!
Not in frame: the couple of pens that haven't run out of ink yet..
I got several new inks back in march and had been looking for a nice orange. Wrote the last of my brass sport last night and filled it up with "peach haze" today. A soft orange, very nice so far.
Jag skaffade flera nya bläck i mars och letade speciellt efter en bra orange. Igår skrev jag slut min sport i mässing och idag fyllde jag den med "peach haze". En dämpat orange färg, väldigt härlig hittills.
I got a compliment on a pen at work. Someome needed a "black ballpoint" and I was like.. I have a black pen 🙂 Not a ballpoint but its black ink and waterproof..
The response turned out to be "ooh, how fancy, are you sure I can borrow this, do they even make fountain pens any more.."
these are the random fountain pen moments 🖋 (it was my old workhorse the lamy studio)
I got the tiny pen to try something. Most of my pens the last little while has been heavy metal pens and going back to a couple of plastic/resin pens I had just wasn't it right now..
But is it that I mostly like metal pens right now, or mostly heavier pens. This very light metal pen might help answer (it's like 9g.)
If I had realized it was the start of #october I might have made an effort to get these out yesterday.
I've never had a piston filling pen before because they seem like a lot of effort to clean, but I've been eying this for over a year, maybe it'll be worth the cleaning. Feels great to write with.
I didn't much care for this years #lamy studio. It was revealed a few weeks ago now and still hasn't managed to get me hooked. It's a great pen, just not my colour..
I'd love to hear what some of the other fountainpen folks on here think. I think some of you would like the more muted colour..
