The e-motion and Tsuki-Yo. A beautiful pen, a beautiful ink, and they just hit it off together. I love the colour and it’s like writing with butter. Not that you’d really want to do that.
Least Favorite Combo:
The Prera with the Vert Olive. Fantastic pen, fantastic ink, but they don’t quite work together. The Vert Olive is quite a delicate ink and needs a thicker nib.
Great Loadout Ian! I really like what you have going on here. I’ve been wanting to add a Faber-Castell to my collection ever since I saw the Ondoro in Smoked Oak – man that’s an awesome looking pen. I’ve also had the Platinum 3776 on my radar for a while, but I feel like it wouldn’t be drastically different from my Sailor Magellan. Your favorite combo sounds awesome too, I haven’t gotten a chance to try out either of those. I can definitely see why the Vert Olive needs a thicker nib, I had the same issue when using Vert Empire. Those J. Herbin greens need at least a medium nib to show off their full potential!
