    I had a few windfalls recently, so I bought a few pens. Now I've got unexpected expenses, and -- whew -- if I hadn't gotten the pens when I did, I wouldn't be able to justify getting them now!

    In the past few weeks I bought a Pelikan M205, an English Parker Duofold Junior, a Waterman Carène and a 1959 Soviet rocket ship-shaped desk set commemorating the Luna 2 unmanned landing on the moon.

    Here's a photo of the Carène, a quick snapshot with my phone. (This is the Pen Photos sub-forum, after all.) Still waiting for the rocket ship to arrive from the Ukraine.

    Nice!

    I haven't taken a photograph of my newest Al-Star (blue-green, but with the bronze cartridges). Other recent acquisitions have been various Chinese pens. I'd like some more Sharks perhaps.

    Sadly it was the only one I saw, back in 2014 - WHS went insane. If I had gone the day before (I didn't feel 100% so didn't go out), there would have been a few more pens - there would have been Parker pens too at ridiculous price, maybe other brands small WHS branches stock too.

    Current ink list is at https://correspondencefan.blogspot.com/p/my-inks.html but I am wondering what inks could fill in gaps of colour!

    When you decide where your gaps might be, let me know and I may have some samples to fill them.

    I'm not really sure where my gaps are.. One colour I am missing is Black - I do have Quink Black in cartridges, and maybe a bottle somewhere. However, since discovering colour... I haven't really used black in about 10 years! I have Sparkling Shadows - I could go Night Sky... Maybe another shimmering blue but different from Blue Pearl. Or, could go bright with the Neon Lime or go on the Razz' ! Or, or...! Or maybe a # from Sailor.

    I hardly ever use black, so don't have different black inks. I also have Sparkling Shadows. I have no # from Sailor at all.

    It's hard to visualise gaps from a text list! (I know in my own inks I have gaps in the non-teal/turquoise blues, particularly. Because I don't bother buying things in that shade normally).

    Are you missing some muted colours, and do you care for those at all? Other than Chopin.

    I haven't really gotten round to the muted colours. Whatever the ink is, it needs to look good in letters.

    I will have to get around to doing a swab of the inks... one of these days...
