Before we start - I know that there's a topic for this, but this was also done for a couple of friends, so I wanted to make it easy for them to find the post!


The convertor for my Faber-Castell finally arrived today which finally allowed me to compare all four of my pens and all four of my inks, compared to before when I was always limited to three,


I decided to upload the pictures here for your input / enjoyment / etc. I also felt that this showed how nice the newer PaperBlanks journals are as I had no problems at all writing in my 'Bronte, Jane Eyre' Midi. 


I apologise for the slightly shoddy images, I was using my iPod camera.


The first image is a sample of writing, the second shows my pens. The third is the reverse of the page I wrote on.

You can spot a writer a mile off, they're the ones meandering in the wrong direction muttering to themselves and almost walking into every second lamppost.

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time
