Of course, I have to write on behalf of the men in the group as they do not possess the imagination or the same writing skills as KR (with a few notable exceptions including the present company, of course!). I would not want to call them lazy!
So for the men, I will simply list what they have provided to me (with a few editorial comments where appropriate). The numbering of the pens in the table below has no significance.
|Pen #1||Acme “Reading” FP/RB||Parker 51 – broad stub||Blue Waterman Edson – broad nib||Parker 75 Flighter – medium|
|Pen #2||Acme “Blueprints” FP/RB||Green Pelikan 800 – flexible medium/fine||Parker 51 – medium||Black NamikiVanishing Point – medium|
|Pen #3||Esterbrook School Pen – 9314B broad||Blue-black Pelikan 215 – medium|
|Inks||Blue-Black Quink||Blue-Black Quink – with SolvX||Waterman – Florida Blue & Blue-Black||Waterman Florida Blue and Diamine Prussian Blue|
|Editorial Comments||Of course, SS took this concept a bit too far. He went with the Acme combination FP/RB for practical reasons and left all his beautiful Watermans at home!||Ever the engineer, GG has to make sure that his ink has SolvX!||JP tried to break the rules and bring more pens than he was allowed.||If you want to see how much RM loves his Prussian Blue, you should see the lengths this man went to test this ink for the Fountain Pen Network!|
