I may revert to using Noodler's on this pen since tiny amounts of ink is leaking on the top of inlaid nib.

Taccia Portoguese, blue, M nib, with Pelikan Royal Blue
Merlin 33, red, F nib, with Diamine Passion Red
Conklin Endura, red swirl, CI nib, with PR black cherry
No name wood pen, newly ground stub nib (thanks, MikeItWork!), with Papier Plume caramel
Shaeffer Touchdown, burgundy, F nib (I think), with Iroshizuku grey (this latter pen went on loan to one of my graduate students, who was fascinated by my pens and eager to try one. Told him to use it until he drained it. Within an hour, he told me he'd been won over. A convert!!!!)
A side note - the aforementioned graduate student had asked about my pens, so I took these five to class yesterday and let the six students present try them all out while we awaited our guest speaker. THAT was a treat to watch, as they compared their handwriting and the various inks!

I think animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
