It’s a new month, what’s in your pen cup?

Now let’s finish up business from last month when I mentioned that a Parker Parco was going to be inked up and used alongside the Duofold. The relevancy is the Parco was constructed with leftover Duofold parts. I thought this would be a neat comparison. My only complaint with the Parco is the nib. It was scratchy and I had to hold it closer to straight-up, at 60 degrees. This is awkward for me as I normally don’t hold the pen by the section. I hold the pen by the barrel just behind the section.

On to new business and a new month and as you just saw, the Parco is cleaned and back in storage. This month I thought I’d give the Scrikss ago. The pen impressed me during my review so now it gets the opportunity to prove me right.

Anyway, what are you writing with this month?


I'm a loser as my wife likes to tell me, I enjoy researching dead cousins and playing with fountain pens.

      1. So funny. I have planned where I write all my blog ideas and I carry around a small notebook where I jot ideas. Anything long term or set up in stages I actually wrote down. My to do list and actual calendar are on my phone though

      2. I have an Excel file with the topics planned thru Aug 2022 and use Evernote as my source info aggregator. Then i write in an app called Journal then copy it all into Word Press. No pens involved!
