I know I had said that Dan from FPGeeks was going to be the first submission for the Weekly Loadout feature, but he is a busy man, and I got a few submissions before he was able to send his over. He’s working on it, and it should be on the way soon!

To tide you over, here is a submission from:
Peter LoRe aka trefstemetrese on tumblr and trefste_metrese on instagram.
Peter’s Description (Left to Right):
- Levenger L-Tech Stealth (M): I wanted a Rotring 600, I got this instead. I was not disappointed.
- Lamy Safari (B): I like the Safari series. I love this color. I love this ink. (see the edjelley.com review here)
- Pelikan M205 (BB): I bought it thinking I would use the highlighter. It wasn’t cutting it as a highlighter and is too broad for daily writing. Smooth as butter though.
- Monteverde Invincia Stealth (M): My favorite pen in my collection.
- Lamy Safari (EF): I just switched nibs on this, as I thought this EF’s tines were out of whack. Turns out I was wrong as this combo writes beautifully, especially with what I consider a difficult ink. (see the edjelley.com review here)
- Noodler’s Ahab (Flex): This ink/pen combo is great for editing. Just lays down the blood-red slashes.
- Kaweco Sport: I really hate this pen. Everything about it is sub-par for how much it costs. It is in the loadout because I never use it so It stays inked.
- Rhodia Dot Pad (see the edjelley.com review here)
- I really am enjoying the nib swapped Safari EF with Noodler’s BSB.
Least Favorite Combo:
- The Kaweco Sport needs to go away.
I really like what you have going on here, especially that there are three “stealthy” pens. All black everything is a motto I tend to live my life by. We can all thank Jay-Z for that (sorta?). I own several of these pens, and they’re all solid performers for the most part. I’ve been eyeing the Levenger L-Tech and the Monteverdia Invincia Stealth for a while now, but other pens have taken over the top acquisition spot. Someday I’ll have them though. I also have a Kaweco Sport that I wasn’t the biggest fan of until I made some adjustments. It wrote very dry, and wasn’t the most pleasant pen to use. I would try spreading the tines a bit to increase the flow and use a more lubricated ink. With the flow adjusted and full of Noodler’s Bad Blue Heron, it’s like a new pen. One that I actually enjoy. I think this is a solid loadout with a lot of solid ink choices. This isn’t too far off from what I usually carry, so thumbs up!
