    Default What Pen(s) Are You Using Today?

    Hello y'all, I unsuccessfully tried to find if there is a similar topic already in existence. I also know this topic to be a copy from "the other forum". And I am too new here to clearly understand the difference between the two, and/or this to be/become an issue...if so, please let this thread die in beauty.

    The aim is simple: post a picture of what you use today. Nothing more, nothing less. It will provide many examples of nice combinations, and will give an insight in our average penmanship. Let's go!

    There was indeed such a thread, but after a while, people seemed to lose interest. I can't find the old one, and don't know when the last post was made in it. Starting a new one and seeing if it catches on is not a bad idea.

    I have three fountain pens inked currently, plus an Esterbrook Dip-Less desk pen. But this 1950s Pelikan 140 is the only pen I've used today.

    Parker 51 at work again today filled with Quink Black.



    So happy my nib regrind turned out so well. This pen has become one of my two or three very best pens.

    I've been writing with a Pelikan M205 Demonstrator (gold trim). I replaced the gold plated F nib with a 14K bicolor M nib a while ago.

    The vermilion pen is a Sailor Shikiori Hisakata with a fine nib inked with a 1:1 mixture of de Atramentis document cyan and yellow, the dark green almost black fp is a Pilot Custom 74 with a fine nib and de Atramentis document black, and the desk set is an Esterbrook hockey puck with a 9556 nib, inked with Waterman Harmonious Green. I have to use fine nibs at work because the paper is so cheap, and green because that's the color I use there (everyone has their own color, to identify who wrote what on various documents).

    The 759 also did some letter-writing duty in a teahouse last week.
