    At work today.
    Pink Lamy Safari with Noodler's Purple Martin
    uniball Vision Needle fine with dark purple ink (it looks almost like a black/purple version of Purple Martin)
    uniball Eye micro with red ink

    Also in my bag to show left handers like green.
    Stabilo point 88 fine fibre tip with dark green olive ink
    Pentel Ball medium R510 with green ink. This thing outbleeds most fountain pen inks. The green plastic barrel is close to that of the AppleGreen Safari

    if you decide to get Instagram for your phone look me up, @ivanr365. I have been enjoying it with My Samsung Galaxy S II (Epic 4G Touch).

    Today was the stipula, I felt in an italic mood. Tomorrow probably the Hitchcock though I must admit since getting my pen case I tend to alternate between four in a writing session which is great fun!

    Not quite! On average I write 20 pages a day so I have lots of room to experiment which is fun!

    Why yes it does. Not that it means much for me since my flexing looks like a grade school attempt.

    Today was first day out with my newly acquired Delta Via Veneto. Very nice pen and a nib smooth like greased silk.

    Only downside is that normal converters don't fit. But the Monteverde mini converter does and now I can use my favorite bottled inks in this awsome pen.
