TUESDAY THOUGHTS – 28 Feb 2017

Today’s thought is by Ovid. He was Roman Poet who lived in the period of Augustus and his actual name was Publius Ovidius Naso. He was ranked as one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature. Ovid talks more about his own life than most other Roman poets.

I really love ebonite as the material for the pen and this white blue swirl is something amazing. You have to hold in the hand to actually see and feel the beauty of the material.

The pen in use today is Platinum Plaisir Nova Orange and I love this orange color. Lamy also came with the limited edition of AL-Star in this color by the name of Copper Orange.

It is fitted with #6 Schmidt Broad Nib which is ground to Stub and now it writes exactly to my liking.

Do you ground your own nibs?? Or have you ever tried to do so to suit your handwriting ??
