Seems like the Calendar has turned the page to a new year; I'll take the initiative to start a new thread as 2020 is now dead. For me it's my lost and now found red James Dean!!

For fountain pens, probably a Sheaffer "school pen" with a fine nib. Don't know whether to give the Noodler's Charlie pen a break and use the Pilot Metropolitan or not. And now I've pulled the Hero 9296 from the pen cup. Decisions, decisions.

 

Alas, my EDC isn't conducive to fountain pens. That will be a Zebra F-701 with a Space Pen refill, and a Uni-Ball Signo 207 in blue that's on my desk. But it's either the F-701 or a Jotter with a Space Pen refill every day, so I guess that doesn't count.

Currently got my Churchman's Prescriptor inked for stubby writing, and a Muji fine nib for drawing. 

Also just got a Jinhao 159 at the beginning of January and I must be very lucky, because I've heard they are inconsistent but mine is superbly smooth, just the right amount of wet, and perfectly weighted in the hand for me. Quickly becoming my favourite pen. These expensive pens are going to have to be something mind bending to make me want to spend what they are asking if this is what I just got for five pounds. Will likely be my main workhorse this coming year.

I am using:

  • A Sailor 1911S Wicked Witch of the West, M nib.  This is the one pen that I virtually always have inked.  (I say "virtually always," because if I plan to change inks, the pen is unused for a day while it dries after flushing.)  The pen is currently filled with TAG Kyoto Kyo-Iro Soft Snow of Ohara, my favorite ink for winter.
  • A Shaeffer Viewpoints calligraphy pen, ostensibly F italic but probably 1.1.  It is filled with J Herbin Amethyste de l'Oural, another ink I use in winter, just in case it sparkles, but as usual I see no sparkles.

Nowadays, it takes me several weeks to exhaust the fill in each of two pens.  It used to take me about a week, but now that my "day job" is taking care of a toddler full time, I do not have much time to write.

Today, I'm using two modern Conklins. My most recent is a Mark Twain crescent in Peanut Butter with a fine nib, filled with Conway Stewart Bodmin Black ink. The other is one of my two limited edition Conklinettas, No. 22/98, with a medium nib, filled with Waterman Serenity Blue ink. Both extremely smooth writers with unusual filling mechanisms.

I’m using my latest acquisition, a Scibo Feel in chatoyant gray with black ruthenium trim.  It has a fine flexible gold nib and I’m enjoying getting to know it!  

 

I generally ink up 2-3 pens for about 5 days, then switch out to something else, but at the moment am just using this one.

You should check Diamine Classic Green then :)

After settling on Kana-cho Midnight, I've finally put my new M405 into rotation this evening.

 

P.S. - My Opus 88 red demonstrator was waiting for me at work tonight, along with a 30ml Diamine Monaco Red, so I inked that up and have been trying it out, as well.

It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

Oof - I'm on a "too many pens inked, empty some out" kick at the moment!

 

Yesterday I emptied a Sheaffer Prelude that had a shimmer ink in it (Diamine Moondust, lovely match for the gunmetal pen) and an Italix Freshman's Notator; still inked I have a Jinhao X450 (I'm going through my Jinhaos at the moment deciding if I really need to keep all of them; the 450 is a no but I'm going to use the cartridge up first), an Italix Deacon's Doodle, a hyper-wet Waterman Carene I'm trying to find a good ink for (so far Serenity Blue in a cartridge is doing OK) and a Parker IM which went into my emergency "go bag" pencil case a while back and hasn't come out again since (stupid lockdown)!

 

And I've just received some Sailor Ink Studio for my new Pelikan so I'm dying to try that out...  must find more things to write :)

In my shirt pocket to start the day are a Lamy 2000 and Newton Townsend. Both are fine nibs. The Newton is a gorgeous dark purple ripple ebonite and it is filled with Levenger Amethyst currently. The 2000 with Edelstein Aventurine.
