  • Shubhranshu Das

    My favourite pen and ink combo at the moment is the Italix Parson’s Essential with Diamine ASA Blue…. Why such a mundane choice? No Pelikans or Mont Blancs or Viscontis…. Firstly I write all day with fountain pens at work and at home so I need a pocket pen that works and is a delight for me to use…. I use .. I don’t consider myself as a collector .. As Yet….. The Parson’s fits the bill dead on … It’s substantial in the hand and works really well capped or uncapped…. I adore italics/cursive italic/ stubs and Italix has a wonderful range … They work so well out of the box and on most office supplies…but I use my own ink friendly note books at work … Diamine ASA Blue is great for official needs and delights me in terms of shading and the red tinge once it dries… On TR paper … The ink and Fine CI combination is a dream….

  • Dragonmaster Lou

    Thanks for the reviews… now my favorite pen and ink combo at the moment would be the TWSBI Diamond 580 AL with Pilot Blue Black.

    I just got a Lamy 2000 and have in it Schreibtinte’s Alt-Boudeaux (a kinda grey red). It has a fine nib and it is thinner than my other F nib so it is taking some getting used to!

  • Daniel Hanuka

    Great review! Look forward to season 4!

  • Ashley N. Shillinger

    I enjoy watching all your reviews, keep up the good work! My favorite Pen + Ink Combo right now is my Laban Mento + Platinum Mix Earth Brown, I like the red tones that show up, it’s almost a maroon color.

    I can’t say that I have a favorite pen, since I just jumped into the world of fountain pens last week, but right now I’m writing with an Ohto f-lapa fine with kaweco paradise blue. I’m waiting on a lamy al-star fine with lamy turquoise in the mail, though!

  • Chris Reisenbichler

    Noodler’s Q’Ternity in a Pilot Prera (EF nib) is pretty fun to write and draw with.

      oh! and my favourite pen is my beautiful Faber-Castell Loom Piano in white =) with a combination I made with Waterman Inspired Blue and Rohrer & Klingner Solferino. It became a gorgeous purple I love! (well, it’s not purple.. more like a violet)

  • Ted A

    At this moment it’s. Bexley Poseidon II with a 1.5 stub and Noodlers Van Gogh Starry Night. That preference should last until at least tomorrow

    Thanks for the giveaway, Matt! I just bought a Sheaffer TD First Year, can’t wait to get it!

  • 7InkyFingers

    I enjoy you review but this is first time I have visited your blog. Great give away, I am new to FP (except for the calligraphy ones) and just recently bought a few to write with. I have discovered I like fine nibs. I nowhave a vintage Esterbrook with a 9550 Extra Fine nib that I enjoy. Next, I want to try flex!!

  • 7InkyFingers

    I love Noodlers Heart of Darkness but it is too saturated or maybe dry to work with my Esterbrrok XF nib, so I have switched to Pelikan 4001 Royal Blue

  • Ian Wolfe

    My favorite, really because it’s my only, is my Monteverde Invincia with Iroshizuku Shin-Kai

  • J.P
