More on Fountain Pens

Another article on fountain pens, this time in the BBC can be found at Why are fountain pen sales rising? by Steven Brocklehurst.

The pen show was somewhat short on inks and papers. I was unable to find a bottle of Waterman's Havana Brown, but I did get Mont Blanc Toffee Brown, which is also a very nice color.  I also got a new nib for my blue Esterbrook J, and that pen and nib combination is loaded with the new ink.  It writes very nicely, I must say.  The nib is a broad stub, number 2314B for those who may be interested.  The only downside to using the stub nib is that I have to reload about every other day, as it lays down a lot of ink.
