So what gets you through your day? What is it you find yourself loading into your bag when you leave for the day? A meeting? Or however long you have no idea…
This is what my bag revealed to me today—not the actual bottles, no they’re just what’s in the pens; but the pens and paper weigh enough…
From the back, on the left, we have…
(1) TWSBI Eco, clear demonstrator, with a steel, 1.1mm stub nib, loaded with Noodler’s Golden Brown ink.
(2) Another TWSBI Eco, clear demonstrator, with a steel, broad nib, loaded with Sailor Jentle Blue ink.
(3) The wonderful Edison Collier in burnished gold, with a two-tone steel, 1.1mm stub nib. This pen is routinely eyedropper filled, with J. Herbin Perle Noire. Cannot sing its praises highly enough. Buy one people, you won’t regret it.
(4) Sailor 1911L in black and gold, with a 21K gold, bold nib, and Sailor Kiwa-Guro Nano Black Carbon ink.
(5) Platinum Century 3776 with a 14K gold, music nib, and J. Herbin Perle Noire black ink.
And on the right, from the back…
(6) On the blue, Life Noble Report A4 pad (ruled, I can’t stand blank and dot squares), is a Platinum Plaisir in shiny gun-metal, with a medium, steel nib; but now it’s loaded with Sailor Sky-High blue ink, and the cartrdiges are for out of office emergencies.
(7) On the Amarcord A5 Venetian leather journal, are the four Platinum Balance brood, in Green (medium, steel nib, J. Herbin Vert Pre); Red (fine, steel nib, J. Herbin Rouge Hematite); Blue (medium, steel nib, Platinum blue ink cartridge); and black (fine, steel nib, J. Herbin Perle Noire).
(8) Platinum Cool, clear demonstrator, with a fine, steel nib, and loaded with Sailor Jentle Blue ink.
The bag also contains an artisan-made, wooden ballpoint from England, with a Cross, broad, black refill, and a Uni-Ball Kuru Taga 0.7mm mechanical pencil (very nice, I might write something about that one day).
Why, oh why do I need all that? Who the Hell knows? But it’s fun isn’t it?
