Hello pen friends! I doodled a quick ‘Quarantinely Inked‘ back in April this year, I think it’s about time I did another. Granted, my monthly pen rotation still happens every month. (See here for the rotations so far! Updated monthly), but I do also have other pens inked at the same time for other purposes.
Here we are:
- Pilot Penmanship – Shouldn’t be anything new, this is literally the only pen that is actually perma-inked year round. I use it everyday to do my doodles and it is, once again, the greatest bang for buck pen I have ever purchased.
- Franklin Christoph Model 03 Iterum – spoiler alert, actually the next in line for my upcoming pen review! So I won’t say too much here, stay tuned! (updated: review is out!)
- TWSBI Eco Rose Gold LE Golden Horse Edition – I was totally planning not to ink this one and just keep it pristine forever. But then I asked myself, why? It looks awesome and by far one of my favourite TWSBI pens to date. Part of me is scared I will scratch and bang it up (I mean, I will), but really that is just how I show how much I care — by actually using what I buy! Perhaps some glamour shots is in order before I actually rough it up though.
- TWSBI Diamond 580 – part of the early collection and only really whipped out when I need to use my red ink. Not because I can’t flush it out properly each time, but just that I have long since associated this pen with the Rouge Hermatite. I inked this one up recently because I needed to mark-up some drawings (some of which you can see beneath my sketchbook in the photos ^_^)
- Pilot Vanishing Point – One of the current workhorses for work. An easy favourite I like to whip out relatively often.
- Ferris Wheel Press Brush Pen 2.0 – I kind of decided after the last ‘Quarantinely inked’ that I wouldn’t be inking this one for a while. But since the recent acquisition of many FWP inks, I thought why not. And somehow it has managed to appear in yet another Quarantinely inked, despite me not actually using it too often anymore.
- Tailored Pen Company Tiffany Churchill Model – My review was pretty clear about how much I enjoy looking at this pen despite the ‘EF’ nib being a little too heavy to my liking. Sometimes, beauty overrides function, and so I do like to keep this one inked to twirl around and doodle more often than I plan to. It’s a gem, really.
I actually normally have BOTH Penmanships inked at the same time, one with a different bulletproof ink in it, but I have recently disposed of it due to a potential Slime issue with one of my favourite inks, “Blue Upon the Plains of Abraham”. The biggest sad face. I will be re-purchasing the ink along with a new replacement penmanship soon. I am considering the Pilot Kakuno, since there is a version with an EF nib and I have yet to review one. Anyone have any thoughts on the comparison?
Thanks for reading, here are some more pictures. See you in the next review sooooon.
