A Fountain Pen, Ink and a Notebook





From my 1968 Adler J4
Scanner scaned the lines as colors they are a solid blue.  Changing the color in GIMP also changed the paper color.

  1. Nice combo, Bill. Waterman's Florida Blue is a particularly nice shade. I'm all out of it, I think. It's the blue ink that I used most regularly.
    Must be something in the air. I just finished a post on hand writing. All I have to do is scan it.
    And nice handwriting you got there, too, Bill!

    1. I wish Florida blue was available in non-washable ink.

  2. Love Waterman ink. Does the job and the price is right. I still overpay for notebooks though. Nothin' to be done for it.

    1. I use more Waterman ink than any other brand. The pen in this post likes Parker better. Unusual from what I read. Seems most pens work good with Waterman Florida blue.

  3. For me it is a tie with Parker Blue and Waterman Florida Blue. I can get the Waterman ink in cartridges at the local office supply store.

    I do have some pens though where I need to use Florida blue if I want the pent to work really nice.

  4. Great combination! I have two Chinese pens that work great and one with perpetual dry nib.

    1. The pen is this post is not branded and it is the most nail-like of all my pens. It works great with these notebooks. My Hero 360 is always dry.

  5. I keep editing this to correct the mis spelled title word and Blogger keeps resetting it back to the incorrectly spelled word!
