Pelikan M400 White Tortoise with medium nib. Coincidentally, I bought this pen about the same time I started this blog. I wasn’t sure about buying it. In photos, the White Tortoise had always looked a little blingy, a little too much. I am not a huge tortoise fan. And the white resin?
Well, those reservations lasted until I opened the box. In real life, this pen is fantastic.
However, today the pen is an afterthought. This post is really inspired by the ink. I had wanted another springy ink, after enjoying Diamine Apple Glory and Sailor Sakura-Mori. Luckily, Sailor’s Four Seasons line is all about seasonal inks.
This is Waka-Uguisu, a “spring” ink that ranks among my very favorites from last year.
I absolutely love this ink.
