Fountain Pens In Use

Part of my work-from-home routine includes writing notes using my fountain pens, but I have pretty much narrowed down my in-use pen line up to three: Pilot Metropolitan (M) filled with Pilot Namiki Blue/Black ink, LAMY Safari (B) filled with Iroshizuku Ama-iro, and Pilot Kakuno (M) filled with Iroshizuku Chiku-rin. The black, blue, and green combination looks nice on the pages, and my notes are actually kind of fun to look back on! I tend to prefer thicker lines, so I retired my Pilot Metropolitan (F) and replaced it with the Kakuno medium-nib as my green ink pen. I really like the Kakuno because it’s all about fun – even the smiling face on the nib gives off a happy vibe! You can see it in the photo above. That’s my home notebook, and a short list of ukulele songs that I practice.

I hope you had a good day!
