Weekly Loadout – 2/19/13 – All Black Everything (almost)

Left to Right:

Notes: Wow, I have seriously been slacking on these. It’s turned into more of a bi-weekly, sometimes three weekly, maybe monthly loadout? I haven’t been changing inks all that much because I’ve been stupid busy with school, work, and other work, and the dog. So I apologize for not posting these weekly, but changing the name is too much work. SO. This Weekly Loadout has a pretty serious amount of matte black going on. I’m pretty much settled in with everything I have. Also, if something in the list doesn’t have a link associated, there’s a pretty good chance that there’s a review coming in the very near future. I would give some opinions if everything wasn’t already being reviewed / in queue to be posted, so I’m going to save myself some time, and possibly build up some hype/excitement for new stuff. I apologize if the pictures aren’t as great as they could be. I used my new Nexus 4, and I’m not totally thrilled with the camera. It’s a great device, but the camera definitely leaves something to be desired. I feel like a walking contradiction, I need the latest phones / technology, yet I prefer a fountain pen and NEED a mechanical watch on my wrist.

Also, I opened up a new feature on the site called the TRADING POST. It’s a way for readers of the site to post up their lists of pen goodies that they wish to trade. It’s similar to the ink swap threads on the popular forums, but the difference here is that you get your own page, I host your list, and I create a custom contact form that emails you directly with any trade requests. Thanks to the few people who have submitted lists! If this is something you may be interested in, check it out! Also worth noting, you do not have to have a list on the site to trade! It’s encouraged, but if you want something in one of the lists, and want to trade, by all means!


Keep Calm and Write On.

  1. Oh boy Ed – not only do you bring out my nemesis again you also throw in a rhodium trimmed Pelikan!

    Luckily I already own the VP and the Lamy 2K so they can’t tempt me much 😉 I do like the look of Old Man Winter in that medium nib though, will have to give that a try.

  2. Please do a review of J. Herbin 1670 Bleu Ocean when you get a chance. I only get samples once every couple months or so and I keep forgetting to get that one! I’ve read mixed reviews, but it looks very nice coming out of that Metropolitan. I’ll probably just grab a bottle…

    1. The review is written, all I have to do is photograph it! It’ll be up sometime in the upcoming week.

      I’m actually loving it. It’s wonderfully smooth and very saturated. It’s got a great flow too and is a bit better behaved than the Rouge Hematite.
