Aurora 88K (1954) with a test fill of Waterman blue. The pen needed some fairly straightforward servicing, which all worked. It appears to have an EF nib which makes the line from unsaturated Waterman blue quite pallid.


Anyone owning three or more working pens is in no position to disparage choices by others.

Lamy 2000 Macrolon Extra Fine filled with Montblanc Toffee Brown. Not the most exciting but I love the weight of the 2k and the texture of the Macrolon... Reminds me of the matte ebonite on a Ranga.

Leaded: Palomino Blackwing 602; Lamy Scribble 0.7 (Pentel Ain Stein 2B); Uni Kuru Toga Roulette 0.5 (Uni Kuru Toga HB); Parker 51 Plum 0.9 (Pilot Neox HB)

Is that a customized Pelikan 101N?  In the photo, the binde looks jade green.  I have a couple of 100s with a similar color, but have never seen a 100N with that binde before.

 

  'Tis a custom binde for 100N.

Wow! awesome handwriting! It makes me want to ink the #3776 I haven't used in months! the Extra Fine that it's different from any other EF's I have tried. 

 

Cheers,

Today, so far it's been a Parker Vector, F nib, inked up with Platinum Classic Lavender Black iron gall ink.

Early this morning it was a Waterman Leader w/ fine semi-flex inked with Waterman Serenity Blue and a Sheaffer oversize flat-top frankenpen (a Jade Lifetime with a 7-30 cap) w/ medium-broad nail inked with some VERY old Sanford Pen-It green.

This afternoon and evening its been a plain old Lamy Safari demonstrator w/ medium nib inked with a Lamy blue black cart.

What started as a New Ink Day became a New Pen and Ink Day courtesy of Nick from the Birmingham Pen Company. I ordered a few of Birminghams Pittsburgh themed inks to remind me of home and Nick included a Jinhao because my order shipped later than he had intended. I inked the pen with Fred Rogers Cardigan Red and my son is currently practicing cursive with it. Many thanks to Nick from a soon to be return customer.
