Chris’s Description:

You were kind enough to use my Loadout in June last year, here’s an update view, showing the four pens I mainly using at the moment. The pens are:
  • Jinhao 159 with Nemosine 0.8 nib with Diamine Oxblood
  • TWSBI VAC-700 1.1mm nib with Akkerman Treves-Turquoise
  • Pelikan M625 Burgundy M 14k nib with Diamine Red Dragon
  • ONOTO Minoris #5 two tone gold nib with Akkerman Brown #23
They are resting on my Hobonichi diary with recently acquired One Star leather cover, (loving it all).

Favorite Combo:

Favourite pen is the recently restored (by Peter Crook-Carneil pens) ONOTO Minoris which is a pre-WWII plunge filler, lovely flexy nib, just wish my leftie handwriting could do it justice!

Editor’s Note:

Thanks for the new submission! You can check out his old submission here. That Onoto looks awesome, consider me jealous! One Star also makes great stuff, I’m sure you’ll have it for years to come. Thanks for sharing!

Alia Weekly Loadout Submission 1

Alia’s Description (Top to Bottom):

  • Pilot Vanishing Point Raden Medium Nib, Pilot Iroshizuku yama-budo ink
  • Levenger True Writer with Stub Nib, Private Reserve Electric DC Blue ink
  • Waterman Paris Fine Nib, J. Herbin Rouge Hematite ink
  • Pelikan M205 Duo Double Broad Nib, yellow highlighter ink
  • TWSBI Diamond Mini Medium Nib, Pilot Iroshizuku kon-peki ink.

Favorite Combo:

The Vanishing Point with the yama-budo ink is my go to combo. I love the smoothness of the pen and the color of the ink pops for me.

Least Favorite Combo:

I really love the J. Herbin Rouge Hematite, but I want to get it into a pen with a fatter nib (right now I’m working on one sample, my bottle is in the mail).

Editor’s Note:

Awesome submission! I really like those raden VPs, I just don’t think it suits me so well. I also need to get some kon-peki into my TWSBI mini, it looks so nice sloshing around in there. Thanks again for submitting, great stuff!

Thanks for sharing!

Hans’ Description (Left to Right):

  • Lamy 2000 (F) filled with Iroshizuku Take-Sumi
  • Platinum Preppy (F) filled with J. Herbin Rouge Hematite
  • Lamy Vista (1.1 nib) filled with Noodler’s Red Black
  • Pilot Custom Heritage 92 (F) filled with Iroshizuku Kon-Peki
  • Pentel Kerry pencil red-white-blue edition (0.5 lead)
  • Platinum Preppy highlighter (yellow)
  • Montblanc Meisterstuck ballpoint (F) black refill
  • Palomino Blackwing 602 pencil

Accessories:

  • Tombow Mono Zero eraser (the rectangular shaped one)
  • Tombow Mono One eraser
  • Nomadic PE-06 case in yellow/orange
  • Homemade/prototype copper pencil case for the Palomino

I pretty much stick you fountain pens whenever I can, using the ballpoint only when it seems I have to.  I use the Kerry when drawing-up plans (and I know there will be a lot of erasing), and the Palomino is my go-to tool for crossword puzzles.

Favorite Combo:

I always carry a Preppy loaded with Rouge Hematite – that would be my favorite combo.

Least Favorite Combo:

This is my first time using Take-Sumi – it seems fine but I’m not a big fan of black inks.  It works well with the 2000 though and I don’t like to put anything in that pen unless it will be easy to clean.

Editor’s Note:

Nice Loadout you have here! You have everything covered, from different nib sizes to ballpoints. It’s important because fountain pens can’t always do the job. Thank you for submitting!

Thanks for sharing!

J Robert Lennon Loadout

JRL’s Description:

I’m a fiction writer and college teacher, and most of my writing tasks this week will consist of correspondence and editing student work. From left to right, we’ve got:
  • Pilot Prera F
  • TWSBI Classic 1.1mm Stub
  • ACME Studio Rollerball
  • Vintage Parker Vacuumatic
  • Pilot Custom Heritage 92 FM
  • Retro 51 Tornado Snapper
I’ll probably be writing letters with the Parker and TWSBI—either on the Rhodia DotPad you see here or on some Tomoe River paper that just arrived and that I have never tried. The Prera I’ll use in that Field Notes Cold Horizon, for general note-taking. (I used to be terrible at remembering to keep a notebook on my person, but I’m trying to change that, lately.) These pens are filled with Diamine China Blue at the moment. The Custom Heritage is my editing pen, and I’ve been enjoying Diamine Oxblood for this purpose.
The ACME and Retro 51 are new, and I’m trying them out. Thumbs up on the ACME—it’s quite heavy and solid, and the Schmitt refill writes great. So far, I’m not wild about the Snapper, I’m afraid—it rattles like crazy. It looks cool, though.

Favorite Combo:

Definitely the Heritage with Oxblood. It feels great, it’s cool-looking, and the nib hasn’t let me down yet. I wish more pens were manufactured with FM nibs—it’s just about perfect for me.

Editor’s Note:

Great picture, thanks for the submission! Even though I’m not a big fan of the paper in the Cold Horizon edition, it looks awesome with that Pilot Prera, and it picks up on the blue in the mug in the top left of the photo. I have yet to try an F-M (although the Sailor Clear Candy I have is an M-F – I wonder if they’re the same?) but it sounds intriguing.

Thanks for sharing!

Mike M Weekly Loadout 1

Mike’s Description (Top to Bottom):

  • The Lamy had this Omas ink in it, but I didn’t care for it, and it’s already been switched to Diamine Merlot. (Which I also don’t really care for.)
  • The VFM is new to me. I’ve gotten them as starter-pens for some people, but I never had my own. AndersonPens had free shipping for a while, so I got one. I wasn’t sure if I was going to give it away or keep it, so it stayed in the box until I gave in and started using it. That Ebony Brown ink is good stuff.
  • The Artista with Cacao du Bresil is fantastic. My wife got both for me for xmas, and this is a great combo.
  • Everyone knows about the Metropolitan, but the  Mont Blanc Balzac is pretty awesome. It’s super-bright.
  • The Franklin-Christoph is filled with one of the best greens that I’ve ever used. It was my xmas card ink, and I just keep using it. I might buy a full bottle of this stuff.

Favorite Combo:

The Artista with the J. Herbin ink is the favorite right now, but that might just be due to it being the newest of the bunch.

Least Favorite Combo:

The Omas ink is weak sauce. I know the pen is a good one, but that ink is seriously lacking.

Editor’s Note:

Nice vibrant loadout! I really need to get my hands on a Lamy Nexx, perhaps in my next order. I just got rid of my FC27, it just wasn’t doing it for me, but that blue with the silver cap looks awesome. Thanks for submitting your loadout!
