I love looking at other people's pen and ink choices because it's so interesting to think about why they've picked which pen and which ink. It's like sneaking a peek into someone's medicine cabinet. Aren't you all curious about what ink Nathan Tardiff has in his pens right now?? Or Philip Wang? Or your favourite local pen clerks?? One day I'm going to do a guide on what your fountain pen ink choice says about you, which will be completely made up, but will shock you with its accuracy and truth (or be completely wrong, as I'm just making it up). For now, I'm just sharing what's in my pen roll.   What's in my pen roll fountain pens wonder pens Toronto Canada Left Page: Noodler's Army Green - Lamy 2000 OBB Sailor Tokiwa-Matsu - Sailor 1911S Medium J.

Or I should say that the real problem is that as a result of filling my pens haphazardly whenever I feel like it, I don't always remember what ink is in which pen. For Christmas, however, I had to do something at least a little festive, so there was some good pen cleaning and re-organization in the pen roll. It's always nice to give your pens a good cleaning and fresh fill all at once. We're counting down the days! If you're off work already, I hope you're enjoying your time with family and friends, and maybe a few inky pens too. If you're like us, working right up until Santa comes, I hope you have your inky pens to keep you company :) I would love to hear if you have any Christmas or holiday or festive inks going on in your pens!

Hi Dave :)
It’s the Superior Labor Pen Roll – and we do sell it! https://www.wonderpens.ca/Superior_Labor_s/1996.htm

I love mine! The leather will be pretty stiff when you first get it, but mine has really worked in nicely, and I’ve had mine for maybe half a year. I do use mine a lot, rolling and unrolling and I bring it around with me everywhere I go. If you’re ever available to drop by the shop, you can take a look at the different colours, and also see how soft the leather gets over time! :)

I’m enjoying my Vac Mini as the primary pen I use to retrain myself to write. My engineering background has had me lettering (printing all-caps) for more years than I want to admit. I was not aware of the idiosyncrasies of the vac fill when I purchased the pen. Now that I know to leave the plunger cap unscrewed when in use to keep ink flowing, it does not run dry frequently anymore :-)

I’m glad you are enjoying your TWSBI! I’m also glad to hear that unscrewing the plunger cap helps to keep your pen writing and flowing well! I use my VacMini all the time – it has temporarily replaced my Mini and my 580… but I’m sure those will come back into rotation soon :)

I’m so glad! There’s nothing like “spending” money that you don’t have to spend! :)

Let me know how the work on the nib goes! Of course, I’m more than happy to share since there were so few bottles to go around :)

Liz -
What brand of pen roll do you use, and do you sell it in your shop? I’ve bought a couple from different sources. One the leather is a little stiff, the other too thin. Always looking to upgrade the writing experience.

Thanks,

Yup, definitely!! I have yet to try General of the Armies, but I seem to hear a lot of good things about it! It will have to go on my list for the new year. And of course, I love my Neon-Lime, so I might have to try the same combination as you :)

Liz said:

I am loving the Vac-Mini!! It is both an advantage and a downfall that it has such a huge ink capacity, because I don’t get to fill it that often – in fact, I’m still on my first fill, which I think I will be on for the next two months… The KWZ Maple Red is nice! You’re right, it’s definitely close to Diamine Oxblood! Which is more up my alley than the brighter reds, so it will also be nice to have even after the Christmas season :)

I’m enjoying mine as well, though I think I need to work on the nib a bit to make it a bit juicier. Thank you for the KWZ Maple Red once again, it’s a very cool ink.

Yup, that was me! I had LOTS of fun with it! :)

I did a little pen sketch of Clara from The Nutcracker ballet with the new Noodler’s General of the Armies ink that I bought from you, and filled the neon lime Lamy Safari I bought from you. Does that count? Come on, what could be more Christmas-y than that?

I wrote my Christmas cards with J. Herbin Emeraude de Chivor and Rouge Hematite. They definitely made my cards look more festive! And it was so much fun to do!

Liz

Liz said:

That’s great!! I was also going to use Rouget Hematite, but for some reason I couldn’t find my bottle! Maybe for Valentine’s Day :) I hope you had a Merry Christmas! Was it you that received a gift card?? :)

That KWZ Maple Red looks pretty close to Diamine Oxblood, but a tiny bit brighter. Sort of wish I had grabbed some at the pen show. How are you liking the Vac Mini? Diamine Brandy Dazzle is a fairly festive ink.
