I just used my black Parker Sonnet with fine nib.

Ink today (and everyday) is Paradise Pen Company black ink.

I received the Kaweco Art Sport in the mail yesterday (won it via a raffle during Fountain Pen Day).  Inked it up and it writes great!  It's smaller than my other pens, but that's OK.

Today (and virtually every day) I have my TWSBI Mini All Black inked up with Noodler's Black.  As solid as the sunrise.

 

During the day when I'm at my desk I also use my Parker 21 desk pen quite a bit.  It's inked with Noodler's/Goulet Liberty's Elysium - the best blue since Penman Sapphire.

I'm using my Pelikan M205 today. I think it needs a nib workout. It's just a bit scratchy. This is not working out to be my favorite pen of all time and I will NEVER buy another white-section fp again. Don't know what I was thinking when I bought it. 

 

It has J. Herbin Eclat de Saphir in it. Wow, I thought Kon-Peki was a wet ink. This one is like cry me a river.

For a while, the M205 nibs have been a little "off" and I ask my retailer to check them before I purchase.

Sailor 1911 large, F nib, Aurora Black for writing practice. Palmer method on iPad (PDF from www.iampeth.com) on the side while I do my ovals and straight lines. I think it's good to occasionally review posture, grip and motion.

Twsbi Micarta 805 v. 2 with an. EF nib, which needed a lot of work but now writes beautifully. This is probably my favorite sized/shaped pen. Really great material, also. Shame they discontinued it.

The only pen I've had time to grab today is my trusty desk pen, a Platinum Carbon Desk Pen in XF.  With the Platinum Carbon Black ink, of course.  Damn, if that thing isn't smooth, comfortable, and reliable as heck.  One of my favorites.

Like the pen-ink log! I would need pre-formatted sheets, too, if I had 15 pens inked all at once! I think my record is 7...
