The is mine. Parker Sonnet - Stratum, with matching ballpoint. The 18K nibs on these "limited edition" sonnets are lovely. 

 

The leather notebook holder is from Tanner Bates. At the moment it has a William Hannah 14X9cm notebook in it.

 

The case is Lamy.  

 

The book beneath is Shelley's Collected Poems from the Folio Society.

I just got a Pelikan Signum P520 (M), and I'm surprised how much I like it. It's a little too narrow for extended writing, but is awesome for quick notes. It's on the fine side of medium.

 

It is joining my Kaweco AL-Sport (grey, 1.1m stub) and displacing my Kaweco Classic (white, F).

^—4 posts, several Kaweco pens  :). To which I will add my humble, rough ‘n tumble, AL Sport. Kaweco is doing something right here. My other EDC is the Visconti HS Midi Lava Steel. For paper, I currently use a Fernweh set of faux-leather cover and 4 notebooks (1 blank, 1 dot grid, 2 lined). They are small, convenient and are filled with off-white paper that is moderately FP-friendly. Works great with most EF or F nibs, unless super-wet inks are used.

Hmm I suppose pocket pen means the pen goes into the pocket , right ... right now my POCKET pen so to speak .. is my LIY ( Liveinyou ) Mini, which carry the long held tradition of vest pocket pen of having long section, very short barrel and post to write configuration , except its got a hooded nib, a small window to peer into the converter to see if any ink left and having an all metal construction ( really useful for the EDC part ) and its slim and lightweight too ; just finish a fill on the pink one today and starting the lilac one. I am going with this model simply because it do come standard with a ( reduced size and capacity ) converter instead of forcing me to use cartridge

Just the idea of owning notebooks called Fernweh is enticing! Is it a Dutch brand?

I’m not sure. I stumbled upon them in a kiosk at a railway station, The notebooks can be ordered separately from the cover. One of the advantages of this product is that the cover and its four notebooks weigh absolutely nothing and they’re made in a very portable and convenient size.

 

FP-friendliness varies, depending on nib and ink. Works great with Sailor’s nano-particle inks (no broadening or feathering, hardly any show-through), with IG inks (ditto) and with well-behaved inks like Waterman Mysterious Blue and the ‘basic’ Montblanc inks such as Royal Blue and Lavender Purple. ‘Boutique’ inks tends to have more showthrough or even bleedthrough.

 

Cover and four notebooks

Notebooks only (2 lined, 1 blank, 1 dot grid)

I'm not getting out much at the moment, but before it became sensible to stay at home my favourite pocket pen was my Sailor Pro Gear Slim Mini (Nagasawa version) with MF nib.

 

I was/am also sometimes using a no-name wood and brass pocket pen I bought from Bobby.

 

My EDC notebooks are always Leuchtturm 1917s in A6 size. I use a different colour every year (helps in finding the one you're looking for – I've filled dozens of such notebooks over the years) and right now I'm on bordeaux ones. Last year it was grey.

A stainless Kaweco Lilliput, (14c. reduced B stub) is always inside my satchel.

Sadly, since I'm no longer writing cheques during this COVID era, this little pen gets little use.

Depends on the day, always keys, wallet, chapstick and my phone. But those are givens I suppose. 

 

If I'm at work I carry the Lamy 2000 ballpoint. I think it's pretty professional while still being durable enough for a pocket carry. When I can't use a fountain pen, like when I'm on the go at the office I use it. I only keep it in a sleeve because it might leak, but definitely will tear a hole in my pocket liner. Casually usually I carry my Fisher Bullet. 

 

I don't always carry a notebook with me, if I do it's the Rustico notebook shown. It's not good for a lot of notes, but it's compact and thinner than a wallet so it's not uncomfortable in a back pocket. When I take the Rustico usually I take either my Tactile Turn Slider or Karas Kustoms Ink. Again, the pen sleeve is so the Tactile Turn doesn't rip a hole in my pocket liner, but the Karas can be carried naked.

Delike Alpha with that silly 'War & Peace' engraving. One of these days I really am going to take a file to it. The thing currently has a Jinhao nib because the OE example was a fine point without the tip you'd expect. I think it accepts cartridges, but who's i'm not quite sure. I've always used bottled ink.

It spent a year on a steady diet of iron-gall ink, Diamine registrars, KWZ IG Blue #1 and Hero 232. Now i'm treating it nicer after thoroughly cleaning it out.
