Fountain Pen Favorites for October 2015


The leaves are falling faster, bare branches are showing and chilly November arrives tomorrow. What better time to look back at my personal fountain pen highlights from October.

1. Aurora Optima 365. I really did luck out getting this pen. Just wow.

2. Fall Color Inks. So much fun to use these. Oranges, yellows, browns and reds were very October.

3. Caran d’Ache Inks. The ones I tried this month were fabulous. Just fabulous.

4. Architect’s Nib. I loved playing with Dan Smith’s broad Architect’s Nib grind. I’m going to add one soon. I’m debating between a medium and a fine. I’ll miss that broad nib, though.
