  1. Of fountain pens and inks.

    Recently lucked into a few dollars and decided to treat myself to a Delta Dolce Vita. It is the piston type and made of orange resin. I've never had a "phat" pen decided this was to be the one. Got it from Mottishaw who tweaked it to my preferences. But no grinding!

    When I got it, I inked it up with Swisher's Intense Purple. I've had the color for a couple of years, but keep forgetting to use it. I took it on a couple of work assignments and was disappointed on how wet ...
  2. Spending money on fountain pens

    I guess I can say fountain pens as this is my blog. I don't consider spending any money on roller balls or ball points.

    That said, what would be your upper limit on a fountain pen?

    I have a Platinum Limited Edition where the d
    ark urushi lacquer was applied on the outer surface as opposed to the inner surface. Looks really cool, but expensive.

    Normally, I would say no more than 300USD, but I could go to 1,000 USD if the pen and nib were good enough.
