Dear friends, What is your experience or recommendations for extremely dry, hot weather conditions in both pen and ink? What is your "desert island pen"? For a two year stint in the Sahara Desert, I took what I thought would be my "desert island pen": a Pilot Vanishing Point with three nibs. It was so dry that the Noodlers Bulletproof Black ink evaporated in the converter in just days, at most. I am about to move to Kuwait, which is more or less one of the hottest places in the world. I have my eye on a Pilot Custom 823. I am quiet picky about the nib experience, so choosing a pen only by the quality of the barrel seal alone won't suffice. For giggles, price is not an option but something well under $400 is most realistic. Thanks for the years and years of reading and shifting through posts on the FPN. I rarely post, but quietly sit in the background and reap the benefits of the thriving community. Happy writing!
