I’ve been on an ink kick lately… well, not really that lately. I’ve always loved fountain pens like I said a few days back.
I got myself a new toy.
I’m not 100% sure.
A reward for getting to where I am at the moment perhaps. Maybe it’s just a premature reward for something that’s yet to come.
And why not?
Either way I have a new pen.
It’s a pretty pen. It feels damn good in the hand.
It’s a Pelikan M600 Green O Green. (Green On Green… but I guess that’s the way the Germans say it) I got this one with a fine point. I’m really glad I did since it seems to be a really wet fine point — but that seems to be expected with these pens.
My bling is functional at least. :-P
I also took the time this occasion to try out some inks with different pens. Admittedly this is a poor test in many ways since this is crap copy paper, but it’s not that bad.
The inks in question are three different Mont Blanc inks, a Pelikan and a Noodler’s. The top ink actually has some iron gall content in it and it’s far more permanent than the rest. The rest are just fun to look at.
