Fountain Pens

I am a fountain pen nut.  I love them and use them a lot.  Whereever I go I always look for model shops and fountain pen stores.  One of my favorite of the latter is Bertram’s Inkwell in the Baltimore, MD area.  I could spend hours and a lot of money in that place. 

One of the things I love about fountain pens are the inks.  I use red and blue a lot and finding the right red and blue can be tough.  For red, I like the Visconti burgundy.  However, I recently ran out and am using Diamine Monaco red. It is very similar to the Visconti burgundy.

I’ll try and do a blog entry or two about my pens and inks in the future, but for now I just thought I’d mention it.
