No longer waiting, items arrived Saturday. I am hoping to start using later today and will break out good camera to take better photos. I need the primary notebook to work on my horrendous penmanship. Both Pilot metropolitan pens, black medium nib, silver fine nib.

Currently waiting for a Kaweco Sport Ice in orange. Planning to eye dropper it and for it to be my EDC in college. Of course in a back pack incase it leaks.

In a zip-lock in a back pack ... you don't want ink all over everything in the back pack if it does leak.

So when do we start the 2018 versions of this thread, along with "What pens are you using today?" and "Show us the pens you're using today!" threads?

OOOH....

Of course a pen that small with a nib that broad means you'll be going through ink like crazy -- and refilling a lot....

First pen purchase of 2018 is a Pilot Metro in a fine nib(I always try to keep at least one in my collection because they are my favorites), plus some washi tape & a notebook(Campus)


<i>Many boys will bring you flowers. But someday you'll meet a boy who will learn your favourite  flower, your favourite song, your favourite sweet. And even if he is too poor to give you any of them, it won't matter because he will have taken the time to know you as no one else does. Only that boy earns your heart-Leigh Bardugo. Please assume no affiliation, as I'm just a pleased customer.

"Campus" as in the Kokuyo Campus perhaps? Could you report back about the quality of the paper if you remember? I've been wanting to try it out myself.

At that price. . .  could not resist. 

I also ordered a bunch of sample packs from Goulet. 

Maybe I should take up drinking instead . . .  :(

Went a little bananas today, on the first let alone both. I hemmed and hawed over the Pelikan M805 Ocean Swirl for 24 hours, a fair sized splurge for me, but pulled the trigger. A few hours later, I was scanning random brand listings, and stumbled across and got stopped in my tracks by the Pilot Silvern Tsumugi. I’m a sucker for all things sterling and, yeah, it happened.
