True fact. Written with Montblanc Heritage 1912 and Pilot Iroshizuku Yama-budo ink.

You know how some of us binge-watch television series? I binge read blogs to get caught up with everyone and everything.

Some of what I've been reading (in no particular order at all) . . .

Noodler's announced a new ink. I think I need this.

Goulet Pens got in a supply of J Herbin's Stormy Grey. It was sold out within an hour. I found it on Amazon, but it looks like the vendor raise the price shortly after I placed my order. Arrrgh. Where did you find it?

I have the purple. Not sure I want this one. Do you?

Now, this! I want!

It posts now! I heard it has other issues, though? A leaky issue? Uggg. I have the original, I hope the promised kit to fix it is available soon.

Finally, my friend, artist Chrissy Sparks, sells these in her Etsy shop. She is so talented.

That's it from me this week.  Hope you all have a good weekend.



  1. Christine, I LOVE your blog; don't change a thing!

    I also love your 1912.

    BTW, I just got a sample of Yama-budo and can't wait to "fill'er up." :)

    Best ~ Jack

    1. Fun! I hope you love Yama-budo as much as I do! Thanks for reading!

  2. That new Noodler's ink looks gorgeous! Wonder exactly when Gouket will be getting it in.

    1. I agree! It looks like a really fun ink, too, with the color changing.

  3. Thanks for the mention! <3 You are too sweet!
