Parker 51 Demi with a generous medium nib. For more absorbent paper, Parker Super 21 with a nib on the fine side of medium. I much prefer the bigger nib.

I'm starting something new this year; I'll be taking one fp to work with me each week.
We mainly use pencils at work so there's limited opportunity to use my fps but I'm determined to use them rather than have them sit in a box looking pretty.


Good for you...!


Stay safe!

I'm starting something new this year; I'll be taking one fp to work with me each week. Last week, it was my Baoer 517 with Diamine Ancient Copper (a perfect match but they do not play well together - the ink gunks up the nib after as little as a hour of not being used). This week, it's my Wing Sung 016 (pretty little pen) with Diamine Chocolate Brown.

 

We mainly use pencils at work so there's limited opportunity to use my fps but I'm determined to use them rather than have them sit in a box looking pretty.

 

Nice one.

 

I mainly use pencil at work, but still find plenty of oportunities to use an FP...or two.  :D

Trying to decide which Heritage 92 to keep and which one to return. 

 

I have the 'F' and 'M' nibs with Diamine's 'Imperial Purple' freshly filled in both. They're almost completely different pens. Tough choices.

I'm using the Jinhao 601 and the Wing Sung 659.

 

Might be inking up the Parker Urban Matte Dark-Blue :).

I have five pens I am using today: two Lamy Vistas (one with red  and the other with green Lamy ink), Lamy Dark Lilac with Dark Lilac ink, Pilot Falcon with Diamine Grey and a Platinum Chartres Blue pen with Edelstein Aquamarine. I do a lot of course planning so different colours help me keep track of what I am up to - and I just love the colours!

Oh my goodness. (I'm on my phone and can't use the slobbery, drooling emoticon thingy, but I do require a bib).

It’s a well kent fact that Scotland (The Land Of The Rising Water) has the most beautiful, picturesque, colourful, history laden landscape in the world.

It’s just a shame that you can only look at it through a rain soaked car window.
 
Every cloud though,  If there was no rain, there’d be no RAINBOWS.

 

My top tip:-

If you are walking the dog through mountain bike country.....don't wear headphones.
