This Week’s Inked Pens

I end the week with slightly different pens and inks from when I started on Monday – the ink all up in my Kakuno feed just annoyed me too much, and if I was gonna flush that… Well, in for a penny, in for a pound haha. The inks: Pilot Metropolitan = Iroshizuku Yama-Budo. Pilot Kakuno = Diamine Graphite. Lamy Apple Green = Iroshizuku Kon-Peki. Lamy Lime = Iroshizuku Tsutsuji. Lamy Neon Coral = Platinum Carbon Black.


The inks in each pen. It’s a good thing the ink samples take me awhile to go through, cause I’d have to buy all 3 of the Iroshizuku inks otherwise!

This week’s ink choices! Man this Metropolitan M is a fat line in comparison!

Ink Sample Archives

So back when I first got into fountain pens, I would keep a meticulous list every week of what pen was inked with what ink. You know, in case I forgot. I found this page from 2009/early 2010 in my notebook archive. Kinda nice to see some old favorites again.

Ready for Spring!

Green ink is getting me ready for Spring! I love that this ink matches the pen, even though I’m not usually so matchy-matchy.

Hero: the Lamy Safari Clone

Comparisons of the Hero Lamy Safari clone against other Lamys. The Hero with M nib is filled with Diamine Ancient Copper – the Lamy Safari with M nib is filled with Diamine Majestic Purple. Just because it pleased me, bwahahaha!
