New Ink Pens


Super excited to start using these new pens:

  • Platinum Carbon Desk Fountain Pen, Super Fine – For just under 10 bucks, this pen is excellent. Smooth and consistent ink flow that feels somehow magical.
  • Pigma Micron Ink Pen Set – Contains 3 pens: #01 (0.25 millimeter), #03 (0.35 millimeter), and #05 (0.45 millimeter). For close to 6 bucks, these are perfect. You can get a much larger set, but I think these are all I really need. Trying to keep supplies to a minimum to avoid feeling overwhelmed.
