Editor’s Note:

Yves, you definitely have some nice combinations of pen and ink here. I think it’s interesting that you mix inks. I received an ink mixing kit for Christmas, but I have yet to experiment. I think I need a few more inks by the same manufacturer so I can safely experiment. Your Visconti Van Gogh is quite beautiful, as is the Pelikan M400 in striated brown. A Visconti Homo Sapiens is probably the next high end pen I’m going to be purchasing. I have a Pelikan M605 that I love. I would really like to try out a specialized nib like your stub though. The wrap you keep the pens in is also very nice to look at. It looks like it does a great job of protecting the pens too. Thanks again for submitting this great loadout, it’s my pleasure to feature it!

  1. Very nice pens and wrap. What brand is that wrap & where did you get it? I would like to try to make a design like that.
