Sheaffer PFM III, Parker Quink.

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

When you have pen and ink, every problem needs a piece of paper.

I have five pens inked right now (well, four - i just drained one):

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!

This week I'm using a Deccan Masterpiece (brown mottled version) a (VERY) large eyedropper pen with Parker Quink ink. Ironically, its the only ink this pen seems to like.
This pen will write for miles...

Nervous? No, I'm just thinking...

Today I am using three, a vintage Parker 51 with an orphaned Gold Cap loaded with Blue/Black Quink,that I picked up in charity shop for $3.50 last month but oddly it had a Parker 21 stainless cap (which is interesting), writes like a breeze; a Lamy 2000 also with the Quink; and a Man 100 with a South Seas Blue cartridge.

Attending an all-day training course today, I expect to be taking copious notes in my A5 MB Diary and Agenda. Accompanying me is my trusty MB 149 with ‘F’ nib, filled with Mystery Black, backed up by my MB 114 Mozart carrying a fresh black cartridge, my MB 163 rollerball with black refill, and my MB 165 pencil.

Pavoni.

I felt strong, so I inked up my vintage Rotring 600 hexagonal(the repairman said he could tell it was an old friend)and put it in my pocket with the matching gravity pen, and the roller ball. I challenge anyone to come up with a set of three pens that are heavier!
