July EDC Update

When I got home last weekend, I switched up the pen and ink rotation.  I've been using these since, and will probably use most of them for another week or two before I get the itch to update. 

Pens from left:  (1) Omas Ogiva in Saft Green with Masuyama-ground medium nib, loaded with Iroshizuku Kon Peki (2) Nakaya portable writer with medium nib, loaded with Montblanc Alfred Hitchcock; (3) Lamy 2000 with Greg Minuskin retipped .9mm stub nib, loaded with Akkerman Voorhout Violet; (4) Parker Sonnet Cisele with Fine Nib, loaded with Aurora Black; and (5) Waterman Phileas with Medium Nib, loaded with Iroshizuku Yama Budo.

Of this loadout, my favorite combos have been the Parker Sonnet with the Aurora Black (a classic pairing, IMHO), and the Nakaya with the Montblanc Hitchcock (the only ink I've hoarded).  I haven't spent a lot of time with the Omas yet, but that's primarily due to the fact that it's a wet writer and most of my work this week has been done on cheapo paper that feathers and bleeds like crazy.  I'm also really starting to love the Phileas, which I recently received in a trade.  Finally, Greg Minuskin did some masterful work retipping this Lamy 2000, which had been ruined by nib work so bad that even Mike Masuyama couldn't salvage it.  Reviews of all will be up at some point.  Enjoy the weekend everyone!
