Sometimes you just need a new sheet of paper. It motivates you to start afresh and gives you motivation… So I decided to start a new blog to do what I want properly.
So I wanted to use this post just to link to reviews of fountain pen-related stuff I did in the past, so that they’re not lost and forgotten forever (by me)…:
I received two ink samples, both of Robert Oster. That was my first time trying their ink, but I have heard a lot about them every since. Between Direct Sun and Grun Schwarz, I preferred the red ink, although the dark green was pretty sheeny.
Since Shimmertastics were all the hype back then, with new colours coming out, I got to try Cocoa Shimmer (original name, eh) and Enchanted Ocean. I really liked both of them! The blue looks great on broad nibs, since the ink sheens red, while the brown looks best in a finer pen.
Testing Traveller’s Notebook inserts. Taroko has a really nice one made of Tomoe River paper. I also looked at the MD Paper insert. Of course, Tomoe River is better for me, since I love sheen on cream coloured paper.
I hope for a more review-fruitful year to come!
