New day, new pens.

P61 Jet Flighter, Quink Black
Latitude Flighter. Still not sure about this one. Feels like a cheap pen with pretentions or an expensive pen with shortcomings, and I cannot for the life of me decide which it is. Ink: Pelikan Turquoise diluted 1:1 with boiled water.

Regards,

Richard.

Burgundy 51 Demi, 48 date code, Lustraloy cap filled with Visconti Blue
Cordovan 51 Vac, 48 date code, waiting on the original GF cap to return from being hammered, borrowing a Lustraloy for now, filled with Waterman Florida blue
Burgundy DJ Vacumatic, 37, Filled with Waterman Florida blue
Emerald Pearl SJ Major Vac, 46 date code, Waterman Florida blue
Black Long Major Vac, 42 date code, Diamine Prussian blue

Usually a 51 and a Vac in the shirt pocket here lately. All have nice smooth writing fine nibs. The black long major has some cosmetic issues with brassing and a loose cap ring but the nib is exceptional. My Parker addiction is really taking hold!
