Weekly Loadout – 10/16/12

Writing Diagonal

This week, I have a few more Goulet Pens’ November Ink Drop colors in my daily carry pens.

This is my first time trying out Diamine Ochre and Rohrer & Klingner Morinda. I’m typically not a fan of brown inks, but this one has some nice shading properties to it. The R&K Morinda is a nice orangey-red. I find this ink to be a little bit on the dry side, but it could also just be in this pen/nib combo. Also worth noting, I swapped the nib on the TWSBI from the TWSBI fine to a #5 medium that came with my Franklin Christoph Collegia. It’s much smoother than the TWSBI nib and fit onto the feed perfectly. I also ordered a bottle of Diamine Grey, this is the second week it’s been in rotation, and I like it enough to own a bottle.
