What are you using today?


I thought it would be fun to have a topic, where we can share our currently inked, currently using, nib shootout type of pictures! :slight_smile:


I start, today I use my Pilot Custom 823 with an F nib, with Franklin-Christoph Terra Firma.


I spent my day with Leonardo Momento Zero Sea stone inked with Diamine Florida Blue. (And a no-name notebook)

Today I’m using:

Sailor Procolor 500 shikisai Sakura with Edelstein Tanzanite.

Inoxcrom I dont know the model, it’s a promotional fountain pen from a phone comapny but it’s all black with a really small logo so its quite “clean” inked with a pelikan 4001 blue.

Lamy Al-star Black with a 1.1 stub and Cherry blossom ink from Robert Oster.

My camera is kind of bad so the picture is a bit weird…


I used a Jinhao 8802 with Organic Studio’s Nitrogen.

Friday was spent with Sailor ProcolorAqua and Velvet Bluegrass ink from Ferris Wheel Press.
Sailor’s nibs are so good, even the steel ones.

Doodle of the day :smile:
I was trying out dotting a wet paper and then painting the tree when it got dry. You can tell that I’m no artist, but it’s fun anyway :slight_smile:


I’m on the mission to go through 30 ml bottle of Diamine Florida Blue. So today I’ve inked up Sailor Pro Gear Sky with it.


I got a block of 200g postcard sized papers as a little present for Children’s Day (tells a lot about what my family thinks of my hobby :smile:) The paper manufacturer is Evora(?) and it is made in [suspense drumroll] China.
So my doodle of the day is…

The inks & pens used are:

  • Akkerman Rembrandt’s Karmozijn + Lamy 2000 <F>
  • Akkerman Hofvijver Grijs + Graf von Faber-Castell Intuition <M>

As you can see, the paper is fountain pen friendly, no visible feathering and there is some shading with the grey ink and even tiny visible shading even with the Karmozijn.
