Picking inks

I think this is my most liked photo on Instagram to date. I’m not sure why but I’m not complaining. If you’re not already following me, why aren’t you?! Do so right now.

These are the pens and inks I ended up with:

  • Platinum #3776 Sai F, Pilot Iroshizuke Tsuki-Yo
  • Kaweco Allrounder B, Diamine Oxblood
  • Lamy Vista 1.5 I, Pelikan Edelstein Aventurine
  • Lamy Studio 1.1 I, Pilot Iroshizuku Kon-Peki
  • Franklin-Christoph M27 M-Stub, Pelikan Edelstein Topaz
  • Kaweco AC-Sport EF, Pilot Iroshizuku Kiri-Same
  • Faber-Castell Ambition M, Rohrer and Klingner Helianthus
  • Franklin-Christoph M02 M-Stub, Pilot Iroshuzuku Fuyu-Gaki

You can’t go wrong with any of these pens.
