One of my favorite New Year's Eve traditions is to copy over my recurring dates. The narrow lines are a major reason to not join the Beekeepers Club. I have trouble with my MB wet F, and mostly use a Pilot F with dry ink.

My office year 2018 started today the same way like most days last year: With my Meisterstück Ultra Black Classique (145 inked with Montblanc Permanent Black), my beloved moo.com notebook and for quick notes my M rollerball and the wonderful Maruman "Mnemosyne" No. 194 are always nearby. (Just my favorite "casual" day-to-day toolset.)

Both my Tolstoy and 149 ran dry within an hour of one another.  Thinking of inking up my 234 1/2 next and maybe pulling one of my old Parker Duofolds into the rotation.
