We have threads on pens in use, down to particular brands. After finishing one of mine today I wondered about the other end of the matter.
What pen did you finish today, whether by exhausting its ink or choosing to flush it?
How did you feel about that? Will that pen or that ink be re-used at once, or go back to wait its turn in rotation? Will that be early or late compared with other pens?
Today I finished a Waterman Man 100 Patrician, the green one. The pen is very pleasing but I have a few Man 100 pens so it will wait its turn in rotation as the only F nib example. The ink was MB Irish Green which is a colour I have enjoyed and will employ again happily.
This brought me down to two inked pens so I have filled a Pelikan M800 for the first time, the replacement green being GvFC Moss. I will probably fill another pen tonight to get a red back into circulation but mainly I am waiting on some new inks when I will fill a bunch more.
What pen or ink of yours went out today?
