Happy Fountain Pen Day 2017

I use a fountain pen every day.

I write my journal with a black Lamy Safari with De Atramentis Document Brown ink.

I sketch with fountains pens, usually a Lamy, and always using Platinum Carbon Black ink.  It’s the best for ink and watercolor sketching.  I dries fast and is permanent.

My favorite for both writing and sketching is the German made Lamy.  I can be hard on a pen as I have been known to drop them while sketching.  The Lamy has easily interchanged nibs to I can just replace one I’ve damaged without replacing the entire pen.

So Happy Fountain Pen Day.
